Last year, we set out on a mission to build a new Gig Salad – a Gig Salad that best showcases your content and allows you to interact with the site from all your favorite devices. I’m happy to say that, as of Friday, December 6, 2013, we have begun to open the doors on these changes. I’d like to take a moment to introduce you to some of the recent changes.
Caesar is about to hit the road once again! This time, Joey, Kristen, Devin, Mark, and myself are rolling into fabulous Las Vegas! (I wonder if Caesar will get to visit his palace?) We’ll be there showcasing our super-talented members at the trade show for the International Association of Fairs and Expos (IAFE). The event is a gathering of buyers and event planners for fairs and expos all over the United States. We can’t wait to meet them all and spread the word about Gig Salad!
All week we’ve been gathering our swag, straightening our piles of T-shirts, mapping our route, and planning some fun meet-ups with our members. The last piece of the pie? A contest, of course!
We’ll be driving from Springfield, Missouri to Las Vegas, Nevada- taking Caesar on the Southwestern route through Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. If you spot us, snap a picture! Then head to our Facebook page and click on the thumbnail that says “Spot the Van Contest” or click on the photo above and upload your picture! We’ll be choosing five winners at random to receive a Gig Salad t-shirt and sunglasses. Plus, a Grand Prize winner will win a swag bag full of Gig Salad goodies!
Keep your eyes peeled, and we can’t wait to tell you all about our trip when we get back!
Move over, Oprah! This year, it’s our turn to make the holiday gift guide: Gig Salad style. We know that the holidays can be stressful, so we’ve got your back- from party planning to gift shopping. Let’s focus on the shopping for now. We all have that friend or loved one who feels impossible to shop for. Here are some awesome gift ideas inspired by the Gig Salad Staffers’ favorite things! First thing’s first- who are you shopping for?
If you haven’t been to a show with The Eskimo Girls, you are truly missing out. With their fun, folksy sound, beautiful voices, and amazing skill on their instruments, they leave nothing to be desired. This year, they’re taking their annual Christmas show and giving back to the community, and bringing some local Springfield, MO musicians along for the ride.
For the first gig of Christmas,
Gig Salad offered me
a night full of karaoke.
Put on your Thanksgiving pants, everybody; it’s time to eat! Thanksgiving is a time to get together with friends and family to celebrate the things you’re thankful for, all the while easing yourself into a food (and tryptophan) induced coma. But, like any other holiday or big event, Thanksgiving requires careful planning. Enter, us.
We had a great time in Chicago at BizBash! Even through the chilly weather, we met some wonderfully warm and amazing people. Check out our recap video!
Your big day is coming up and we’re here to help you plan the wedding of your dreams! Autumn is the perfect time to get married. Something about this season just makes you want to curl up with a blanket and a cup of hot apple cider, and who better to do that with than your new husband or wife?
We know, we know… it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet. But, Christmas waits for no one and if you’ve ever scrambled to find a last-minute Santa to appear at your office’s Christmas party, you know the value of booking ahead of time. More than any other holiday or event, the demand for Santa spikes for just a short amount of time and unfortunately, the supply doesn’t always add up. Luckily for you, we have hundreds of Santa Clauses ready to shimmy down your chimney. The secret to securing your Santa is to act fast!
