Holiday Festivities at Balestra Media 2017


Ahead of the holidays, the Balestra Media team got together in Washington, D.C. from Detroit, New Jersey, and New York City to finish projects, send holiday cards and celebrate the team’s 2017 victories in a fun-filled two-day long city-wide excursion.

We jumped off our year-end festivities with a Middle Eastern-inspired vegan dinner at Shouk eatery in downtown D.C. and ended our night with a visit to the Miracle on 7th Street Holiday pop up bar in Shaw, where we dived into the holiday spirit in matching Christmas sweaters.


We launched our second day of festivities with a team-building tennis session followed by a Hawaiian-inspired lunch at Poke Papa in Chinatown. Back at the Balestra Media We Work office, we signed holiday cards, exchanged gifts and presented awards to all of our staff. The front was dedicated to some of our inspiring projects this year.

We concluded our year-end multi-day celebration with a delicious Afghan dinner at Lapis restaurant in Adams Morgan followed by a visit to the Pathway of Peace walkway surrounding the National Christmas Tree featuring the 56 state and territory trees all decorated with unique, handmade ornaments.

This year was full of incredible moments of resistance and we hope that everyone has a restful holiday enjoyed with family and friends. Thank you for an amazing 2017!
