"Customer appreciation party!" "Come celebrate our 25th anniversary as a little known business!"
Seriously. Does anyone actually go to those things?
I get them in the mail all the time, but I always kind of figure that nobody really goes to them. It must just be the employees (who are forced to come) standing around waiting for the night to be over.
Beachcomber hot tubs recently sent us an invite to a customer appreciation party, where it claimed that we would be sampling the finest cheeses and wines. Now my ears perked up at the cheese part, but I still wasn't sure that I wanted to stoop to the level of going to a customer appreciation party.
Then I remembered our blog.
Trish gave me that look when she saw the invite in the mail. That look that says, "You know we are going to do this, right?" I knew my fate was sealed at that moment.
So we did go. We figured it would be a great way to meet a few people.
Turns out there is a large group of people that goes to these things. I figured that there were nearly 100 people crammed inside that place. To top it all off, they had live entertainment by Trevor Panczak, who has seriously got some pipes on him. Also, the long-haired dude from The Chevelles (Tim Carter) was there gettin' groovy in the odd song.
|Great food, great entertainment, and a chance to win a trip to Vegas... And to think we would have otherwise not come!|
Sometimes the best things in life are free, and even better when you've got a good lookin' date sitting beside you.
We had a great time, and that was seriously unexpected. This was more one of those "Oh, we should probably do that for the sake of the blog" things. If rarely been more unexpectedly surprised. I will be attending all future customer appreciation nights, and I now have high expectations for them.
