Last fall we decided to ask our friends and fans to help us come up with designs for our popular pint glasses, and we've had a great response. Susan gave us fantastic ideas for Thanksgiving and Christmas glasses, and now thanks to Alison, we have a great new glass for Valentine's Day.
Check it out:
We'll be looking for new ideas for St. Patrick's Day, Easter, and eventually, Graduation- so if you have ideas, send them to us! Even if you can't draw, send us your idea and Dave can put it together. You'll be rewarded with a pack of pint glasses, a feature on our blog and our undying gratitude.
Check back tomorrow for a profile on our Valentine's Day designer Alison.
We're not trying to rush through the holidays like the retail sector, we promise. But since our Thanksgiving pint glasses weren't available for purchase until the week of Thanksgiving, we thought maybe we should prepare a little sooner for Valentine's Day.
Our friend Susan gave us some fantastic designs for both Thanksgiving and Christmas glasses, and they were very popular. The last Valentine's glass I remember had two cartoon fish kissing each other.
So, if you've got a great idea for a Valentine's Day glass, we'd love to hear it. You can send us an actual drawing or design, or if you're not artistically inclined, just leave a comment or send us an email and describe your idea. Dave's pretty handy, as you may know, and he actually has a degree in graphic design, so he can create almost anything.
Our goal is to have the glasses in stock by early February, in plenty of time for Valentine's Day gifts for your favorite Sandbar friend. They'd be cute filled with Hershey's kisses and some Bahama Mama toys!
In honor of the rapidly approaching Valentine's Day (hey guys- it's on Sunday! That's two days away!), we recently we put out a call for Sandbar love stories. We were looking for couples who met or fell in love at The Sandbar, or who shared some other significant milestone in their relationship with us like stopping here before their wedding.
Several of our fans responded with great stories!
"My husband and I went to The Sandbar on our first date. He told me he
loved me for the first time on a dollar bill on the wall that read
"Bear loves Jaime". We partied there the night before our wedding and
it is still our favorite place to this day! We loves you guys!"
Jaime and her husband visited us just last weekend. We're still looking for their dollar bill…but it might have been covered up by a picture by now.
Blair performed this Valentine's message especially for all his Sandbar fans (except he doesn't really know about it yet). As soon as I saw this personalized video option on my new favorite website, JibJab, I knew Blair was the perfect candidate. As Dave said, JibJab stole Blair's moves for this one. I used one of JibJab's pre-existing heads for the lady so none of our female staff would be embarrassed.
