Last Wednesday, Marlin decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and break away for an afternoon of fall-themed celebration. Nothing says fall like pumpkin beer (which the interns didn’t buy nearly enough of), bonfires, soulful music and great barbeque. Grill master Matt served up some delicious beef and beans while Next of Kin, featuring Paul Speed, Chad Harris and a special guest appearance from Trevor Gies, serenaded the group. The wind may or may not have helped us drive some shag balls into the distance, but we won’t complain. Except for Odin—who got hit in the head by Jared’s rogue golf ball. There was no better way to end the night than by sitting around the fire and roasting s’mores. For those of you who couldn’t get out to dance around in the falling leaves, we have pictures for your bitter viewing pleasure below.
Just ran across this great article on Gason Nelson, personal chef to the Saints’ Reggie Bush, who uses Bush’s Best® Baked Beans in one of the star running back’s favorite dishes.
Bush Beans Foodservice has been a Marlin client for about a year now, and we’ve been proud to launch two websites (here and here), a print campaign and a helpful Twitter grilled meat relationship column in such a short timeframe.
Whoever wins this Sunday, at least know the Saints have the best taste.
Yes, that’s a pun.
You’re a piece of meat. You’re hot. You’re sizzling. Literally sizzling.
But we know even grill-marked masterpieces like yourself get lonely. That’s why we’re proud to launch a new website that helps grilled meats find their one true sidemate. www.grilledandlonely.com
We are happy to announce that Bush Brothers & Company has selected Marlin as their new foodservice agency. Bush Brothers produces a portfolio of more than forty products, including Bush’s Best Baked Beans, the #1 brand in foodservice and retail.
Marlin peeps took our first trip down to Knoxville recently to meet everyone, tour the mind-boggling Chestnut Hill plant (tucked into the beautiful Smoky Mountains) and even see the recently renovated, turn-of-the-century home of A.J. Bush himself. What an incredible introduction to the company and people behind the brand we were already familiar with as consumers.
Bonus pic of Tom outside the plant, after the jump. Not pictured: Tom’s nonmatching pair of shoes. True story!
