- in a community clubhouse
- in the office
- in the breakroom

Can I invite out-of-town friends?
Absolutely! Your Partner will provide you with a digital Party Link that you can share easily by text or email! All orders placed through that link will be credited to your party, whether they actually attend the party or not!
What type of snacks should I prepare?
Keep it simple & gather your way! Here are some ideas that we love:
- Cheese & Crackers
