My husband works for a great company. They are one of those rare places that still think of their employees. Over the summer, they held a company luau. It was fantastic. It took place at a gorgeous clubhouse with a pool. It was a first-class event.
Recently, my husband’s boss gave us tickets to a beer and wine fest. These tickets cost a pretty penny, and for good reason. Once you enter the fair grounds, it’s all you can drink and one plate of food for the cost of one ticket. Yep. That’s right, folks. One price gets you all the beer and wine you can drink (or the vendor is willing to give you a sample of in most cases). Plus, you get a giant plate of some really awesome food.
I’ll be honest. I wasn’t expecting much. I was thinking along the lines of, “How good can free wine and beer really be?” Well, my pessimism was misplaced. These vendors knew a good event when they saw it. So did my husband’s boss. He told my hubby, “Set up a table with our literature and some give away tokens then have yourselves some fun.”
His boss made sure our table was right here:
|Best Van Ever!!!|
Not even one hundred feet from the beer van. What? Yes! A beer van! It didn’t have crappy domestic beer either. It was all imports. I wish I could tell you what brands they were but I can’t. I drank wine from the wine vendors I’d been so skeptical about.
One of the wine vendors had locally grown wine that was so freakin’ delicious, I dare say, it’s now in my top five wines. He even had the ability to import my favorite German wine. Wowzer!
Plus, there was a great band playing. They played mostly 70’s rock music with a country tune thrown in here and there just to mix it up a bit. There were a ton of giveaways from the vendors and the crowd had a blast.
Oh, and security was tight too. Not only were you not getting in without a ticket, you weren’t driving drunk either.
….hubby and I saw that the next event on the list is for fine dining…fingers crossed he has to “work” that one too!
