Stratasan Holiday Party 2019

The Stratasan team gathered to celebrate the 2019 holiday season at Pins Mechanical Co. Everyone enjoyed some friendly competition playing arcade games, duckpin bowling, bocce, foosball, and Jenga all while snacking on 5 Points Pizza. Since Pins is 100% dog-friendly, a few Stratahounds were able to tag along and join the fun as well, including the fantastic outdoor fire pit.
