With 21 June fast approaching, many clubs and venues are excited to get their doors back open for the first time in 18 months.
To mark the occasion Alex Jukes, boss of Jukebox PR, is clearing the calendar for all of his employees so they can make the most of the venues that are opening.
Posting on LinkedIn, Alex wrote about his decision to give all his staff three days off.
That's a good two days of drinking, plus one day of recovery. Or they could just go all out for the trio, I suppose.
His employees will enjoy some time off from 20 June, without the worry of working the following day on a hangover. Instead, Alex says they can 'go out and party and enjoy themselves', adding they this means they can also 'support nightlife'.
According to the company, the three-day period will be a symbol of their appreciation of venues and live music.
It will also be a good opportunity to share solidarity with the industry after what has perhaps been the most difficult year it has ever faced.
Alex explained: "Clubbing and Festivals are why I got into this business as Jukebox PR and why many of my staff love doing what they do.
"June 21st is a re-set and a chance to embrace it, showing appreciation to the clubbing venues and artists and to dance, laugh and enjoy ourselves with no restrictions.
"My team have been fantastic over these challenging 18 months and deserve the time to have some fun and support the industry."
The staff at Jukebox work on over 250 events and festivals every year, and over the coronavirus pandemic they have had to adapt and find new avenues to work within.
Replying to his LinkedIn post, one person said: "Can I enrol working for you this month? No seriously, very nice gesture mate! I hope they do some good networking at the same time!"
Another added: "Love this mate. I hope more follow your lead," while a third simply said: "This is a good boss."
Back in February, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced his roadmap to lead Britain out of lockdown.
Although it's still subject to change, Johnson said that 21 June is the earliest date we could see all restrictions on social contact removed.
After a year of living under coronavirus restrictions, it seems as though plenty of people think that's something worth celebrating.
