Ahoy Maties! Today we are featuring the Pepin Distributing Awards & Recognition Banquet that took place at the spectacular TPepin’s Hospitality Centre in Tampa.  On January 14, Pepin Distributing set a new standard for employee appreciation events with this lively and festive Pirate themed celebration! All hands were on deck to enjoy fun games like hermit crab racing, and guests couldn’t wait to plunder in all the pirate themed interactive entertainment including face painting/scars, a photobooth, green screens & TV’s, and of course Video DJ entertainment.

In honor of this grand awards & recognition program, a delicious Grand International Buffet fit for a Captain was served by the Puff ‘n Stuff Catering team. And shiver me timbers, the buffet was amazing! The three-foot pineapple centerpiece with fresh fruit was surrounded by pirate favorites such as roasted chicken & mango salad, glazed & grilled margarita mahi mahi, Jerk crushed boneless prime rib, Mojito mashed sweet potatoes, and more crew favorites.

By the end of the night, the entire crew was cheerfully singing “Yo Ho Ho” from the Black Beard Lounge! The giant pirate ship outside was a huge hit, and the entire crew posed for pictures to remember this phenomenal night. Scroll below to see some scenes from the night along with the full menu from the Grand International Buffet!
