Most days, the work lasted from 7:20 a.m. to 9 or 10 p.m. On Sunday through Tuesday nights, team members would find a quick dinner near the hotel, order room service or simply go without dinner, preferring sleep to food. Here, on Wednesday night, several team members share a dinner of submarine sandwiches and sodas at MPSC. They also share cupcakes, in honor of nurse Debbie Wilder’s birthday.
