Southgate Staff Treated to a Decadent Christmas Dinner at Charlie Palmer Steakhouse

Maya and I (Nicole) have no doubt that Rusty and Marie always go over-the-top when it comes to treating their staff at Christmastime. In lieu of the traditional big company gift-exchange and dinner, this year we all agreed that a dinner would be more than sufficient. With Maya on her fifth year at Southgate Coins, and I coming up on my third-year anniversary, we all felt we knew each other well enough that time spent together would be a gift in itself.

Read on to hear about the fantastic meal and exemplary service we received at Charlie Palmer Steakhouse in Reno.

‘Tis the Season of Christmas Cheer, and Southgate Coins Knows Just How to Get Everyone in the Holiday Spirit

Maya and I (Nicole) are seasoned veterans when it comes to Southgate traditions, including birthday celebrations, dress-up days, and decorating for the holidays. Before we knew it, the Christmas holiday season had already arrived, and it was time for my favorite time of the year to decorate. What’s not to love about bold red, green, and gold colors, joyful snowmen and Santas, and the sweet smell of peppermint and gingerbread in the air? Well, I love it ALL!

Although this was not my first time decorating for the winter holiday season, It was the first time I was able to partake in it from start to finish. This included unloading all the Christmas boxes, unveiling the goodies, and strategically placing them around the store. The Christmas tree is always the first to be set-up, which also requires the most time and maintenance. When all lit up and glowing with garland, ornaments, and candy canes, our festive tree looks amazing in the front lobby area of Southgate Coins. Throughout the day, Marie, Maya, and I continued to decorate the rest of the store with poinsettias, wreaths, stockings, and many more goodies. Before long, Southgate Coins transformed into a winter wonderland, greeting customers with the sights and smells to get any Christmas Grinch into the cheerful holiday spirit.

Without a doubt, there were many pictures taken, and although Rusty has been overloaded with work lately, he was bigheartedly able to assist us in decorating and picture taking. The four of us (Rusty, Marie, Maya, and I) make quite the cohesive team here at Southgate, and are looking forward to the holidays together. As long as we avoid the crazed and frantic squirrels of holiday shopping, Christmas is unanimously the best time of the year. As we arrive on our final month of 2011, I look forward to ending one year and beginning yet another with the Southgate family—rosy cheeks and all.
