Hi, I had a show (my 2nd) Thursday night, and while the sales were good, I got only one booking (from someone who had previously told me she would host) and I had a terrible time with crowd control (there were 20+ people). So...I want to do something a little more fun and interactive for this new booking (show on October 7th). Let me know what you think about this idea and if you have anything to add! To start off, it may be a coed show (or the guys will go to happy hour and come back after we're done to sample the food - not sure yet). My host is a HUGE college football fan, so I think we want to do a football theme. What I'd like to do is split the guests up into teams and have each team prepare a recipe. So I have a couple questions. Should we have the teams make different recipes or the same recipe? I'm thinking different would be better because I don't have duplicates of all my products. My host does have a few things we can use so we'll have duplicates of some things (batter bowl, food chopper, US&G). Also, does anyone have any good ideas for football/tailgating/snacky foods? I did a search and found suggestions for Touchdown Taco Dip, the Cool Veggie Pizza as a football field and the football cake in the batter bowl. Any other ideas? Any suggestions on how to make sure I get my "plug" in for products and bookings? I'm thinking of taking about 15 minutes at the beginning to do this and then letting the teams loose on their recipes. Any potential pitfalls I need to watch out for, or any other ideas of how to make this fun yet productive?? Thanks everyone! P.S. Sorry this is so long!
