There are obvious indicators for spring: the birds return, buds on the trees, and in our case the hibernating bear returning to tear into our garbage! Like the signs of spring there are also signs that “Bar Season” for IBroughtTheBar.com is right on the door step. It usually starts around the NCAA Tournament where team pride is in full force and passionate fans want bars for the man-cave. That spirit was on full display last week as we held a Final Four bar give away on twitter @IBroughtTheBar and the response was fantastic.
This coming weekend we head to Penn State for the annual Blue-White Game. We will have the RV packed with bars and will be setup in the overnight RV lot. Spring football gets people not only thinking about their teams prospects come this fall, but also what they can do to take their tailgating game to a new level. Our bars have been known to take a tailgate from boring to banging! Check out the silly but TOTALLY REALISTIC video!
As we come into the exciting spring, it’s also next to reflect on what kind of cool creations we came up with over the past year. For example, we did our 1st venture outside of sports and created a “Corona – It’s Five O’clock Somewhere” Bar. This one was a blast to make and look forward to seeing it used on the patio over even the beach this year. Pretty Cool, Right???
For those of us in Pennsylvania – you know too well how this state is pretty much split down the middle with Philly Eagles and Steelers fans. Often times in the same house hold. Well… leave it to use to create the “House Divided Eagles Steelers” Bar! The owner of this baby tells me it has saved his marriage!
While saving other marriages I put a good deal of stress on my own (joking) hitting Met Life Stadium outside of NYC on Sunday's to team up with @TailgateJoe at Jet's games. We supplied Joe and his team some bars and ran a few promos. It was hardly work! Joe throws the best tailgate around.
Lastly, in a world that can seem so messed up, there is nothing better than the Army vs Navy game to remind us that we live in the best country in the world and should be so proud of that. This picture of fans and cadets around on of our bars could not have made us prouder.
Looking forward to making more memories in 2016!
