Company field trip

Company field trip Years ago I used to gather up my work kids and take a field trip or have a company type picnic. I’m not sure how or what year we got away from doing this or what happened, but this year we decided to gather up the team and restart the tradition....

What do you suggest or what is your favorite?

What do you suggest or what is your favorite   As a Pappagallo’s Satellite Beach crew member we get asked this questions a lot. It is so hard to just name one thing. There are so many good things on the menu. Oh and if there is a Special of something not on the menu...
