Chutzpah, that's what's happening

Me and my big mouth.
Yup, me and my big mouth got me some free advertising!

I was in Sur La Table the other day and I asked if anyone every did food demos there. The manager of the store was there at the time, and she was not sure. However, the District Manager happened to be there that day, and she said she would ask. She gave me her card and told me to call her back.
So I called her back and she said she was unable to connect with the District Manager, and that I should call back tomorrow.
(Interesting how she never took my contact information - she left it all on me).
I called back the next day and She said, Why don't we go forward with it!!!!!!
I'm going to do a food demo at Sur La Table!!!!
After Labor Day, I'm going to go in and look through their cookbooks, and select one to cook from. Then we'll decide on a cook day.
The only stipulation I had was that I be able to have my business card and brochure out on the table.
The kicker is that they give a professional discount to cooking professionals, so now whatever I buy there, I'll get a 15% discount.
:) have a good weekend.
