I spent Friday night at the Oracle Arena watching the Warriors spank the Mavericks. But beforehand in the parking lot, I had an opportunity to talk with some people. We talked sports of course, beers and careers. I met a guy who runs a hot sauce company. Turns out he was into Latin Jazz like I am, but he's also a phone geek. I had my Jangl tee shirt on and he asked where I got it. I told him the office manager gave it to me, which is true:) Then he told all his buddies about it - his buddies who were drinking Olympia's and eating big mac's. I'm not sure which would make it a better commercial: Jangl, McDonald's or Olympia. (I had no idea Olympia was still around - that was the first beer I had back in the day).
Then Saturday our band played a music festival out at Lake Del Valle, so I thought I'd camp out. There was this huge camp fire with people playing every song in folk music history. I was talking to this mother/daughter and they were telling me about how they each had a MySpace page - the mother to keep an eye on the daughter. Then the daughter told me she didn't keep her pic in her profile, and she blocks or ignores anyone who tries to contact her. I told them both how impressive that was, but then I HAD to tell them about Jangl. I'm pretty sure I got two new customers out of it.
New meaning to working hard and playing hard;)
