We have learned through the years that since the holiday season is so busy in the bakery business that it is generally better to celebrate in the New Year.    But, for the past nine months, everyone at the bakery has been talking about karaoke, and about how much fun it would be to go together.  So, Gina thought it might be a fun thing to go one evening before we got too busy, and she made the arrangements. 


Apparently we are not a shy group!  No one wanted a private room and I learned why – we are also all very competitive.  A group from Random House was there Wednesday evening and it became a little bit of a competition between us to see who could “perform” better.  We went with the classics; they went with rap and hip-hop.  As much fun as it was, my consensus is that we are better bakers than singers!  So back to our baking for the remainder of the month.







We always play such great music at the bakery and our customers are constantly asking us who we are listening to or what we are playing. Thanks to our bakery ipod, we are entertained everyday, as we work, by some great singers such as Dionne Warwick, Ella Fitzgerald and me????

 Of course, I’m not a great singer but I thought that we could all try to match the talents of some of our favorites with a fun staff night out at karaoke. After a long hard day at work last Wednesday we all, (including Pam and Connie!:))met at a local karaoke bar to show off our stuff.

I was so excited as people started to arrive but got a little nervous at first because no one picked up the song book to choose a song. Were they a little embarrassed?  Was this a bad idea? I had to do something to get the night rolling so I decided to be the first to go. As I looked through the book, I spotted Dancing Queen. That would be the icebreaker! (Who doesn’t love Abba?)

  As the night went on and everyone kept choosing songs, we heard some great duets, solos and group sing-alongs. What fun! We had lots of laughs and had some time to get to know each other a little bit better. After a few hours, the night came to an end. As I sat in the cab on my ride home I thought to myself – what stars! Both in and out of the bakery!!
