I've been sitting on this for a better part of a year now. Of course it would take something like Whiskey getting sold to finally get off my ass and post this. Part of it is that my camera took blurry pictures, but the larger part is I was just lazy.
In any case, here are a bunch of (crappy) shots from when Giant Bomb still had a bar in the office. To date this, this was the Pengwill happy hour! (Here's my Tested themed recap)
When I first arrived, Ethan let me into the building an gave me a tour. Everyone there was super graceful about letting some random stranger into their place of work! I got to see stuff like the Control Room, podcast room, the bar! They took me over to the engineer bay and Dave showed me some stuff he was working on.
Then I was shuffled into the intern area until the show began. It was cool speaking with the then-terns Corey and Ben. When the show began I was able to sit on the flea couch, which is way cooler than it sounds. I took a bunch of pictures during the show and had a blast. Once again, everyone was super kind. Daniel brought me beers, Corey chatted with me throughout the show, Drew introduced me to Ryan when I was way too nervous to approach him myself. Ryan in his infinite grace, only berated me a little given he had just finished a long hard day of work (its amazing he tolerated me at all). The Tested crew showed me around and Will gave me popcorn which I ate! It was an amazing experience all around and I am thankful they were the kind of company to allow me to do something so fun. I'd like to think of this as a time capsule because a lot of this freewheeling nature might be inappropriate in a corporate workplace, also a lot of these people are parting ways.
