News and more from Team Grindr.
When the excuse to throw a decent soiree calls, we must answer-- and no better excuse than the holidays. Last Wednesday December 14th, the Grindr team gathered at Drai’s lounge at The W Hotel in Hollywood to celebrate an exciting year with our ever-growing company.
An array of beverages including champagne, wine and beer flowed as small plates were passed around. The view atop Drai’s was certainly one to remember as sun set against the Hollywood skyline. Check out photos from the night on Facebook.
Looking back, it’s hard to believe how quickly our team has taken shape since opening doors to our Hollywood HQ in September. We look forward to bringing new exciting features to Grindr in the coming year and thank you for being apart of our journey thus far.
We extend our gratitude for your support and wish you a very happy holiday season.
