My area PPD Autumnal equinox festival was today, and some dear friends of mine were running the concession. They sent out a menu via the Internet letting everyone know what they could expect to enjoy today,
As great as the menu appeared, I only saw one problem, no sardines.. So I demanded they put sardines on there. Okay, in reality, I jokingly said they needed sardine wraps. * My friends hate sardines. So wraps were out of the question; but we are still friends. * Minutes later they update the menu and send this out.
How great is this!? Killer ass great! That's how. I was told I better *had to* buy some, then again, I told them if they didn't have sardines at the event, I would write a formal complaint for false advertising. And I know they would of told me where to stick my complaint letter; for that's how great they are. Then it occurred to me! What kind of Sardines do non sardine eaters buy!? At this point I was expecting the worse. Here is the sign at the event.
Lunch time came around and I ventured up to the concession stand. I asked my buddy, Raven, what kind they were. He hadn't a clue. He just set out three stapled bags in front of me. They read: soybean oil, mustard, and water. Decision, decisions. I knew they had to come from a super market locale, which means depending on what brand they were , would determine a two dollars well spent.
I chose the mustard, then Polar sardines popped in my head. I put them back and went with the soybean oil. *buying tinned fish in a poke is very different*
Ah, Northern Catch.. You also get 13 crackers in every bag. Gracious with the crackers, I knew Crystal was not a sardine eater when she packed these. Sardines, crackers, and a drink, for two bucks. Now that's a deal. I asked about utensils, but to keep cost down they had to be left out. *But who needs utensils to eat sardines with anyhow?*
Then other people got the Drew's three S special, so I made them pose...
Here is Robin M. with a tin in mustard.. She had almost killed the tin off before I noticed she got
em... Northern Catch is good in mustard by the way..
I caught Chris A. as he was opening his bag...
Now that's a mouth full of sardines....
Being a community event, they also run a food drive for the locale food banks. They collected almost 1000 pounds of food today. Great job guys! Seeing that Canned Fish is one of the most needed items, I was happy to give...
Before you call me a cheap bastard, I gave a lot more than just two tins of sardines-- a bag of nice imports and several 5 sardine tins. *Not to mention, the bags of mundane canned goods my wife took.*
It was a great day and event; wonderful people and happenings. I even received the Drew's three S specials that didn't sell. Two is all that didn't sell.
