Our Alpha Testing family has been celebrating the Christmas season over the past two weeks. From bowling to mechanical bulls to go karts, and of course a photo booth or three, a great time was had at each office’s party. Take a look at some pics from the events in the slideshow below!

With college football season just around the corner, we know that traffic heading north on I-35 is about to get even crazier than usual. If you need to grab a bite on your way to Norman or Stillwater, we suggest a stop at a legendary Gainesville spot. The Hungry Hippo Sub Shop is located just east of I-35, about an hour north of Dallas/Fort Worth. Voted “Cooke County’s Best Sub Shop,” they’ve been serving Gainesville’s best sandwiches since 1979. Thanks to Alpha’s Chris Pape for sending this photo from his recent visit!
