IT Director Matt energized the #PodSquad early on with the declaration: “You don’t really need money anymore.”

Find out what he was referring to (and a whole lot more) here in our latest podcast episode:

Raspberry Pie sounds delicious! IT Matt hands one to Eric for consideration.

Oh my, the Big Red bandwagon is growing stronger by the minute. Here’s where to check out all our free soft drink locations.

During our Do Not Fry holiday discussion, Eric explained it’s best to 1) Apply Sunscreen; 2) Rub It In; 3) Wait 15 Minutes Before Getting in the Water.

Lauren was quick to show us her version of the “but I’ve got a lot to do” face:

Here’s how the Crosbys revealed their baby’s gender:

    We love listening to the Podcast! Just got back from taking my 8th graders to HW. They loved it. We took the behind the scenes tour, and while we were waiting for the park to open, two of your employees took a picture of our tshirts. They had a “Survive and Thrive” logo which they said they had a meeting where they talked about that. Just a side note, that was the name of our middle school play that was written by my daughter, Brianna Dehn who was a number one fan of the shows when she was younger. She drew pictures for the cast, even when Lauren Koch was in them. Her best work was a giant poster that hung up in the back of the theater. That picture made the 70th pictures as well.

    Also, I am a Diet Pepsi, with caffeine fan. You do have several locations around HW/SS that has that, but your soft drink listing does not differentiate between caffeine free and not. Happy that Kringle’s cafe has caffeine now.

    Keep going with the pod casts. We love them. #howopo.
