Babble-On recently hosted our “Pins and Pints” party at Uptown’s historic and funky Bryant-Lake Bowl. Delicious food (check out their menu), great craft brews, and some noisy pin-crashing were all part of the recipe – (as were a few party crashers, too, but… no matter – s’all good.)
And what would a bowling party be without the classic retro bowling shirts the staff wore (courtesy of Becky’s family) and a “Wheel of Meat?”, – our specially designed (and very shiny) contest wheel, from which partygoers could buy a number for a chance to win some tasty, organic, grass fed beef from Moonstone Farms in MN. All money collected – (5 bucks a number – 40 numbers in all – 3 rounds of spinning – plus an additional cash donation from Babble-On Recording) went to benefit the Land Stewardship Project – a non profit organization dedicated to ethical, sustainable agriculture. It was our version of a Meat Raffle with a touch of Soul Food.
Congratulations to our winners, – Notably, long time Babble-On friend, Jay Kaskel and Oren Robashken of Make Visual who each walked away with a quarter of a quarter cow (known elsewhere as a sixteenth, yes? – hmmmmm).
Here are just a few of the pics…. (if you click on them you’ll get a larger version in a new window)
Many thanks to all who came by for some beer, bowling and beef. We’re honored to be tied into the stellar ad community here in Minneapolis. Also, a special thanks to longtime buddy Scott Jorgensen and Art Director Aaron Shand who created all the awesome signage (see above) and e-mail ads for our soirée. We couldn’t have done it without you.
We’ll see if we can swing it again in 2010.
