Nepean’s Hard Stones Grill is inundated with Christmas party bookings this holiday season. After the dark days of the pandemic, demand is high again.
“We’re fully booked for the next month. We’re getting bookings every day. The biggest ones are 50, 50 companies.”
This holiday season has been so busy that we had to hire additional staff to handle the holiday rush.
“When our staff was running 10 guys in the front and 10 guys in the back, I had to go almost 50 percent higher,” Powell says.
Also, holiday parties start pretty early. Nick Kyte, Coldwell Banker’s first Ottawa real estate agent, is throwing a celebratory party for his clients this week.
“Thank God this year after the pandemic, we can come back and have a nice party,” Kaito says. People are excited.They want to come.I’ve been getting texts all day.The musicians are coming and there’s food and drink.Everybody’s going to have a great time.”
It will also be held at Sala San Marco, and the Christmas gathering spot will fill up quickly.
“People have events on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, etc. ‘It doesn’t necessarily have to be the weekend.'”
After hundreds of virtual meetings and online get-togethers, businesses can finally get together and celebrate the holidays in person.
“They weren’t very social,” says Zacconi. “They don’t hang around much anymore. Even in many places they aren’t 100% back in the office or something. So at least the Christmas party is a way to get them together again and bring them home.” Let’s go. Please share a good time laughing together in the same room.”
Ottawa caterers say this is one of the busiest holiday seasons in years. However, for many companies, staffing shortages are hampering orders.
Celebrate the Christmas spirit with a return to Hard Stones Grill.
“They’re exchanging gifts. They’re playing games,” Powell says. “It’s a corporate event, so it’s ushering in the holiday season. It’s a lot of fun.”
