Rethink Celebrates with Cake

In honor of our newly announced 20th Century Fox World Dubai project, we celebrated with fancy cake and sparkling beverages. As one does. The announcement was the culmination of a great effort by our talented team, and it was nice to cap off an exciting day this way. It was pretty darn good cake.

Happy Birthday, Rethink!

On February 3, 2015, Rethink Leisure & Entertainment celebrated its official first birthday. We did so with a fun lunch in the office, full of cake and food. How else does one celebrate?

We then retired to local watering hole Whiskey Bend, where Josh and Scott had their first meeting about Rethink, many moons ago:

 Great Scott!

Great Scott!

Wait, what is Scott leaning on? Oh, it's just a DELOREAN.

 Tracked dark rides? Where we're going, we don't need tracks.

We all spent more time than one might think going over every amazing detail of the car. And everybody had to sit in it:

Many hours later, we retired inside for drinks, darts and pool. And looking at the pictures of ourselves in a DeLorean. I mean, come on.

We all had a blast, and are looking forward to next year's birthday party. Which better have a Tumbler parked outside. I'm just saying. If it's Herbie the Lovebug, it'll probably be a bit of a letdown by comparison. Special thanks to Adam Kontras at RentTheDeLorean.com.
