Coworkers Who Play Together, Stay Together

Coworkers Who Play Together, Stay Together
Sydney Feldman

This Monday, we kicked off the week with a birthday boat celebration for the one and only Toni Parker’s 30th birthday, and it got me thinking about all of the incredible experiences I’ve had with the #DiamondMob in my 3+ years at our firm. We’ve done everything from dinners and rooftop cocktails to color runs and fit clubs (yes, we work out too), but I wanted to highlight some of the biggest and best DPR events.


On one of my first days at DPR, I was instructed to use Jody’s credit card to purchase a superhero costume from Party City. Why? Because a member of our team had just earned his US citizenship and we needed to celebrate – Diamond style. A few weeks later I showed up at a rooftop bar on South Beach in my pink Power Rangers outfit ready to party the night away with Captain America, Tomb Raider, Superwoman and other fave childhood characters.

About a week after the Amerigato madness subsided, I was told once again to get the credit card and book myself a flight to Cancun for DPR’s annual spring break getaway. I’d never traveled with an entire office before, but lots of tequila + gorgeous beaches sounded like the perfect way to celebrate my first month on the job. And our incredible clients, CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort & JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa did an amazing job of rolling out the red carpet for us.


Probably my all-time favorite DPR ‘outing’ was last year’s spring break trip to Vegas. I had never been to Vegas before, let alone with more than 20 of my now-closest friends. The adjoining rooms we had at the Cosmo that made it feel like being in a college dorm suite were definitely a fun touch. Without giving away too many secrets, I’ll just say Vegas certainly did not disappoint.


What better way to celebrate your coworker’s 30th birthday party than by telling her she has a client meeting that’s actually an all-day mansion rental complete with a DJ, tons of food & drinks, a gorgeous pool and fun floaties. Enough said.


For the holidays last year, Jody brought everyone to spend the night at Playa Largo Resort & Spa. From a sunset sail to a seafood broil, it was a fun, tropical way to celebrate a holiday where most people get stuck with frigid temps and snow. To top it off, she gave each of us our Christmas wish (The surfboard she gave me is the best present I’ve ever received, hands down.)  #jealousyet?


In case you haven’t noticed, 30th birthdays are kind of a thing around here. After two models dressed as Secret Service men came to pick up Toni, Monday was spent cruising Biscayne Bay on the ‘Summer Wind’ with rose in hand + all our favorite dance tunes.

A million thank you’s go to Jody for dreaming up these incredible celebrations and making them part of our every day reality. Next up, the crew is headed to Aruba to celebrate DPR’s 10th Anniversary. Stay tuned for the recap!

From beachside camping in Mexico to mountain paragliding in Mendoza, Sydney is always looking for her next big adventure. When she’s not busy traveling through Latin America, this hippie-at-heart grooves to reggae, jogs on the beach and stuffs her face with Florida stone crabs.
