I’m not sure leftover holiday candy counts.
An email circulated in December, informing us the hoarding on the windows would soon be coming down, and we were not to take photos from inside our offices while this was happening. As of yet, this has not happened. Also, no word yet on the fate of the iconic pickle fork statues.
