A Few Things.
I sent my kids back to school today, which just serves as a reminder that time stops for none of us. And if you know me at all, you know that this sort of maudlin sand-in-the-hourglass sort of thing just SLAYS ME. Here's a few other items of note from when I wasn't crying while leaving school parking lots:
- We shipped off a sample pack of Jelly Jar pies to Goldbely.com today. Goldbely is a website that gathers some of the best handmade gourmet food in America and places them on one easy-to-shop website. Let's hope they love PJP and add us to their already impressive collection of stores to shop. I looked around a bit and you can buy 50 famous New York hot dogs for $199 or 12 Maine Lobster rolls for $249. And I thought shipping pies was difficult and expensive...
- After binging most of How I Built This, I cracked into Half Hour Intern and it does not disappoint. It is basically a show that interviews people about what they do. So far, I've listened to the one on being an opera singer, the one about being a diver in the Navy, and I'm halfway through one on the work of a dairy cattle nutritionist. I did take a break from listening to email the host about the compelling story of a lawyer turned pie empire enthusiast. Ahem.
- We are slated to be part of the SEC Beer Fest next weekend. Over 75 breweries from across the United States will be on hand to sample out beers, along with a handful of food vendors. All of the festival proceeds go to charity, so we couldn't pass up a Saturday event to sell pie, drink beer, and help out some great local organizations.
- And trust me when I say that basically everyone at PJP was willing to make their Saturday available to sell pie in the midst of a multi-brewery beer fest.
- Oh, before I forget, moon pies are on the menu for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this week. They are $3 each and available in Salted Caramel, Coffee, and Peanut Butter. Call ahead to reserve if you need more than a few, just to be sure we have them in stock. Moon pies picked up on Saturday will still be good for Monday's eclipse.
