A Hot Havana Night at Summer Soirée

“Fun party and a great place to meet old colleagues and other partners. Always a great party to attend!”

Our 2019 Summer Soirée customer appreciation event lived up to its promise of a Hot Havana Night. Held this year at the popular San Pedro Market in San Jose, the soirée was indeed muy caliente from start to finish. Our highlights for this year include:


The Theme
The soirée was spiced up throughout the venue with flavors of the Havana theme. Guests checked out the fedora wall and donned jaunty fedoras to wear themselves, as well as enjoyed a domino lounge and lined up for a cigar roller. Live music from the popular DonGato Latin band and Cuban dancers also added to the festive flavor.

Food and Drinks
Guests satisfied their appetites with a variety of food stations loaded with tasty Cuban fare including rice and beans, chicken pulled meat empanadas, croquettes and tamales. Thirsts were quenched with signature cocktails mixed with feisty flavors such as Anjeo tequila and pineapple rum.

The Venue

Located in the heart of downtown San Jose, San Pedro Square Market, with its open-air plaza, was the perfect place for our soirée. Guests could mingle outside in the warm early evening or seek shade in the unique interior space.



Among the numerous kudos that we received for this year’s Soirée, one of our executives received this note from a longtime customer the next day: “Groupware does an amazing job making people feel like friends and family versus just customers.” Our Summer Soirée aims exactly to do this: show our appreciation of our customers as extended family. We will always go that extra mile to “answer the call” for our valued customers and our biggest party of the year is a celebration of their loyalty in making Groupware their IT solutions provider.
