11 Tables Drawing Game! Part 1

Table XI turns 11 this month! In honor of our "Golden Birthday" (get it?) we commissioned a new piece of art for the office from artist Ethan Orbach. At our recent retreat to Lake Geneva, we broke into teams and had a contest to see who could find the most company references in the drawing—all told there are more than 65, including creative depictions of employees, clients, and other office jokes. (Artistic license was very much encouraged.)

We had so much fun, we wanted to give our friends a chance to play. Each Monday in March we'll post a section of the drawing. See if you can spot the TXI references, Where's Waldo-style, then leave your answers in the comments. At the end of the month we'll reveal all and unveil the entire drawing.

The contestant* who gets the most answers right over the course of the month gets a free chef-cooked lunch at our office. We may even let you pick the menu. Yum.

Good luck! (And don't forget to check out parts twothree and four.)
