Tallboy Missing

UPDATE: The Tall boy suit has been found and was return to the Narragansett Beer Company.

One of my favorite local breweries, Narragansett Beer, from Rhode Island recently as of five days ago had one of their mascots suits stolen at the end of a event. Following is the information about the incident from the company’s website:

“The Tall Boy suit was stolen while we were cleaning up after the Neighbor Day Block Party on Saturday in Luongo Square of Providence. This is no joke. It may sound funny and yes Tall Boy can be comical, but this suit was really stolen from us. It is our property and expensive to make. He adds some life to all of our events and we want it back. We are offering a reward to anyone with information that leads to a safe return. If you’ve seen it or know anyone who has, please let us know. This isn’t just a case of beer. Whoever took it will be bragging to their friends and posting photos online. Could be in a college dorm or your neighbor’s house and anywhere from Boston to Westerly. Folks came from all over to the party. Not to mention Halloween is right around the corner. Please keep your eyes peeled and hit us up on Facebooktwitter, email (contact@narragansettbeer.com), or phone (4014378970) if you know of anything. And help us out by spreading the word. Together we will find it and bring Tall Boy home so we can all enjoy his smile at future events.”

Here is the owner of Narragansett Beer, Mark Hellendrung, addressing the issue on youtube.

As part of a Honest marketing venture, Honest Tea visits University of New Hampshire to test them. What they do is setup a un-manned Honest beverage store with a sign saying each drink is $1. They also have a clear cashbox in the middle and a hidden camera over looking the shop. Let’s see how honest is my old school!

Stop by your neighborhood Dunkin’ Donuts to check out their new Fall selection of beverages. At some local shops you will be able to taste a 4 oz. sample of one of their delicious fall beverages between 10 AM and 2 PM on Friday, September 24th and Saturday, September 25th. The samples can include the new Apple Cider, served Hot or Iced, or enjoy a taste of one of our delicious Pumpkin Coffees or Lattes. I will be going to my local shop around 10 AM or 11AM, but I don’t know what delicious fall selection I will try!

Only at participating locations in New England!

UPDATE: When I arrived at my local store before going to a local chili and chowder fest I ordered my usual large iced hazelnut and inquired about the samples. At 11AM which is when I ordered they were already out of samples. It was a bit of a bummer but oh well!
