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.

This Valentine’s Day, WRECO staff celebrated by bringing their best baked goods to WRECO’s Annual Valentine’s Day Bake-off.  We had five employees enter the competition, and everyone loved being able to take a break in the afternoon to eat and judge sweets.

Our entries included Mochi with Tropical Fruit, Spice Cake, Indian Sweets, Twix Cupcakes, and Mini Cheesecakes with Cherries.

WRECO staff were very intent on trying all of the creations, for judging purposes only, of course!  The winner of the contest was the Chocolate with Caramel Frosting Twix Cupcakes, and the Mini Cheesecakes with Cherries were a close second.

Thanksgiving Potluck 2014

Thanksgiving has come and gone but this potluck was one to remember!  The amount of food everyone brought filled up three separate tables.  We have the savories: fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, spring rolls, stews, and breads.
