• Nothing Crabby About this Couple!

    Posted by on March 13th, 2012 at 10:57 pm
    Angelo and Filomena Ramunni of Crabby Petes were hardly crabby!  They served their visitors with smiles and charms and even took the time to pose for this pic.  We loved their simple and effective booth -- how could one not "sea" that they are in the shellfish business?! ...

  • A Moo-ving Display and Another Creature That Made Us Smile

    Posted by on March 13th, 2012 at 10:56 pm
    What better way to say "dairy" than with a cow as your booth prop?  We love 3-D props that are true show-stoppers.  Udder-ly charming. And this truly creepy little display had people stopping and taking pictures (like we did).  Sometimes, ugly works!  (But not always...see "Freak Show" for one of the creature discomforts of the show.  ...

  • The Lights are On…But No One’s Home

    Empty booths are one of our biggest pet peeves.  If you have to run off somewhere, get a "neighbor" from the booth next door to stand guard.  (Or, bring enough people to staff your space!)  The unpacked boxes are another trade show no-no.   And we really love cute little animals and creatures as booth displays, but this "mascot" was sort of creepy. ...

    Simple, straightforward, tasty and well-run!  This product is part of the Dr. Pepper/Snapple group and the folks at this booth were greeting, pouring, and sampling up a storm. We also sampled a million different octopii (slight exaggeration) but absolutely adored the taste and servers at Octopus Garden.  It's tough to make this sea creature look attractive, but this team did it! ...

  • Food, Stoves and Squid (Lots of Squid!)

    Posted by on March 13th, 2012 at 10:33 pm
    The best way to attend this show is HUNGRY!  Lots of free samples and an eclectic mix of snacks, equipment, services.  This year featured a huge Japanese section.  We also noticed LOTS and LOTS of bread!  One would never know that Americans are carb-conscious these days.  But our favorite booth of this year's show had to be the grilled octopus on the panini press.  Not only was the food delish, but the guys who served it up were all smiles and service!  Lots of tentacles...lots of taste.....
