Banish those Monday blues

It’s the first day of Christmas week … To give yourself that much required extra  motivation at work, the editorial staff recommends an ancestral technique: eating. Luckily for us, Léo de Bruyn created EatIn Monaco, an application for restaurant deliveries, so you can enjoy a hot meal in front of a Christmas movie.
