We were a tilt-a-whirl and a couple of carnies away from being able to sell tickets to this thing. The carnival themed tailgate was once again our best showing. Games, prizes, elephant ears, and a plethora of fried foods set the festive tone. We blanketed the golf course in Cholula Hot Sauce, making friends with our tailgate neighbors and hundreds of passers-by along the way. Special thanks to KT for creating the games and furnishing the prizes, from the duck pond to pin the sweatervest on Jim Tressel. Thanks to KT (again) and Joe for making their way across the golf course to pass out sauce and recipe books. Thanks to Julian Gonzales, Free Press photographer, for coming out and giving us some notoriety in the metro area. Finally, thanks to Cholula for sponsoring our day and "spicing" things up.
Quick press linkfest:
- Article on Rich Rod's mom that is nestled next to an artsy black and white of your's truly holding up hot sauce bottles and looking like some kind of tailgate troll is here.
- Freep photos of the day, including two from our tailgate (#5 and #6) that include an action shot of steak sandwich building and our own Baby Beth and friend Drew in Cholula gear.
- Michigan Football Saturdays gives us a shout out...thanks.
- Our pics from the tailgate, courtesy of Tuba and Greg.
One more note...I'm pretty sure we are going to have an article on the tailgate pop up this week in the Freep, most likely in the Life or Food section. I'll keep you posted.
Thanks to everyone for helping put us on the map! GO BLUE!
