I recently had the great joy of driving a few hours north and spending a couple days in the awesome state of Michigan.
Part of what makes makes my job awesome is getting to meet our customers at demos. "Demos" are what people in the food industry call sampling events - where we get to give our snacks out to people in stores (or bars). Bee's Knees Food Co. was invited to do a demo at Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor, Michigan. If you haven't been there, or haven't heard of them, you need to check it out! I got to meet a bunch of the great people that work there and a number of their customers while sampling our spicy, salty + sweet snacks. Afterwards, I was fortunate enough to have one of their sandwiches. Woh! Ahhhh-mazing!!!!
Afterwards, I grabbed a beer with one of Zingerman's awesome buyers and had some great beers at Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ale's. I also had a pretty tasty charcuterie plate for dinner.
The next day I drove around some of the suburbs of Detroit visiting stores & meeting some great people. I stopped for a quick bite to eat at Vinsetta Garage.
