It's Thanksgiving & I'm Thankful, by Eddie Matarazzo

That time of year to be thankful;

I am so thankful for my partner of twelve years Joel and my four Dachshunds, my home and most of all my family in Boston and my family here in Palm Springs (friends and co workers at both Hunters who are my family). I am so grateful to wake up every day and have a wonderful job to go to with the best customers anyone could ask for who I have grown close to over the last thirteen years. I love that I can exchange stories of our lives and actually know that they care and that I care about them. I am Thankful for a wonderful life, career, but most of all the people and several best friends in my life who make every year a blessing.

Keep your spirits elevated always!
Eddie, Bar Manager, Hunters Palm Springs 

It's Thanksgiving & I'm Thankful, by Jen Seymour

It is that time of year when many people reflect upon what they are thankful for in their lives.  Here are my thoughts as this year comes to an end.    I am thankful for my family.  Although they are far away, I know they are only a phone call away.  For my Palm Springs family, who all keep me grounded each in their own way.  For my friends, old and new, who I know I can count on in times of need.  I am especially thankful for true friends.  For as I grow older, I have become witness to the scarcity of true unconditional friendship. I am thankful for past and present relationships, because I have learned something from all of them.  
I am thankful for all the career opportunities that I have been given.  I am blessed to belong to a company where I consider everyone I work with a friend. Where mutual respect is commonplace and everyone works incredibly hard towards one common goal. A place where diversity is celebrated instead of repressed.
My hope for the future is to keep this thankful perspective, not just once a year, but on a daily basis.

IMAGINE, For Just 1 Minute.......

You work four, 12 hour shifts back to back, just leaving yourself barely enough time to sleep for a few hours before returning back to work, and to boot, working on the line faster than Lucy and Ethel on the candy conveyer belt for the entire 12 hour shift. Also, imagine that your work conditions include deafening sound levels and demanding bosses and clients, all on weekend hours on top of your already heavy weekday schedule.

Those are the conditions that our staff at Hunters PalmSprings endures on Pride weekend, all the time loving the work. I mean they LOVE their work! No complaints, just a hurried smile as they return for another shift.

Patrick and I do not have the words to express to each and every one how much we appreciate their everyday   hard work and dedication to providing excellence in the nightclub business, especially on weekends like Palm Springs Pride. All we can do is say thanks, thanks so much, from our hearts.

The performance of the entire staff, Jennifer the general manager and the volunteers that helped, truly makes our tag line at Hunters Nightclub come to life…….Spirits Elevated!

Mark Hunter and Patrick Volkert
