From The Kitchn - November 10, 2017

Oh, the office Thanksgiving potluck (aka Worksgiving). Sigh. You have had a billion reminders, you knew it was coming, and you will still probably end up scrambling a bit in the morning. Getting out the door on a regular morning is hard enoughnever mind doing it while also remembering the special casserole/dip/mac and cheese you made the night before. You are bound to forget something.

And you will, according to our very own own Human Resources Manager, Louisa Smith, who is always in charge of organizing our company's holiday potluck. It's true: She says there's one thing people never remember to bring.

Make the party run smootherand help out your office's Louisaby remembering to pack this one thing.

Even if you have no intention of bringing in an extension cord, it's a good idea to give your office manager or designated party organizer a heads up.
