WRECO staff brought delicious amounts of food to share including tri-tip, hamburgers, sausages, and more!

May 5 is celebrated in both Mexico and America as the Day of the Battle of Puebla, in which the Mexican army defeated the French in 1862. WRECO staff celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a festive Mexican-inspired potluck in Walnut Creek and a trip to a new restaurant in Oakland this year.

In Walnut Creek, staff played foosball, ping pong, and destroying a piñata filled with candy.

In Walnut Creek, the nacho bar turned out to be a huge hit, with Brecken’s homemade margarita mix and Joyce’s watermelon agua fresca being the winners.


Downtown Walnut Creek is the place to be for St. Patrick’s Day!

WRECO staff tried out a new spot for our St. Patrick’s Day company happy hour this year. Though we missed having cheap green beer, we enjoyed the beautiful weather, craft beers, whiskey, and tasty appetizers at Sauced, a local barbecue joint in Walnut Creek.  It was a great way to relax and unwind after a hard day at work!

This Valentine’s Day, WRECO staff celebrated by bringing their best baked goods to WRECO’s Annual Valentine’s Day Bake-off.  We had a great turn out with 11 employees enter the competition, and everyone loved being able to take a break in the afternoon to eat and judge sweets. We had a wonderful turnout with cookies, fresh baked scones, tiered cakes, and more.

In 2nd place was the trifle pictured below on the right.
