The always subdued Canlis is in the throes of employee appreciation overkill. The restaurant's week-long Staffapalooza looks something like this, according to Brian Canlis:
Wed: Nordstrom shoe shine guys
Thurs: dive bar night >>>>>>>
(see more photos )
Fri: caricature artist
(for a mural of everyone's faces)
Sunday is the staff summer party: floating down a river, food truck, volleyball, music, custom tees. Nothing to see here. Just your typical employer "thank you."
