A Weekend at National Harbor

This weekend FunniBonz participated in the DC Metroplitan Food, Libations and Luxury Home Show at the expansive Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, MD.

There were so many vendors there including smooth jazz by Bertram McLeish, wines and spirits supplied by Legends, jewelry by Adal Jewelry Designs and Pale Fire Designs, art by J. Bertram White and Matthew Johnston, fashions from Let's Wine and Debra Murray Wearable Art, handbags by Bette's Bags and, of course, several gourmet tastes including FunniBonz Barbeque Sauce

Some of our favorites included the white BBQ Sauce varieties from Glenn's Goumet Goodies,

the amazingly versatile gourmet cheeses from Rising Sun Farms (the Key Lime is my absolute favorite!),

The delicious vinegars, sauces and oils from JD Gourmet,

the Southern-style barbeque sauces from Picky Vicki,
and the amazing upscale rice treats from Mallow Munchies.

Throughout the show, Jim joined up with Glenn Coleman of Glenn's Gourmet Goodies for some product demos.  On Saturday they made FunniBonz Sloppy Joe wraps served with Wasabi Bleu Cheese cole slaw and freshly-made SLAP chips.

On Sunday they made Barbequed Shrimp with White BBQ Wasabi Grits.  Both dishes were absolutely delicious!

Our table had a non-stop line of customers all day long.  We sampled all-beef meatballs and our famous vegetarian FunniBonz Five Bean Medley

We even had some extra help when our cousin Sharon Phox popped in and threw on a shirt.  Within a few minutes she was selling like a pro!  Look for her at our next event as well.  She's HIRED!!!

Cousins Mark, Theresa and Mark Jr. also came by to support us and enjoy the show.  There's really nothing like the love an support of family!

We made lots of new friends and FunniBonz fans this weekend.  In fact, we made so many fans that we ran out of samples and compltely sold out of sauce.  We are eternally grateful to the area residents of Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC and the surrounding areas that tasted our samples, watched the demos, and love and support us and our products!  Keep spreading the word about FunniBonz to your friends and familes.  And thank you!!!

Special thanks to Tammy, Linda and Sherry for their kindness and patience.  They are the Official FunniBonz Fans of the Week!
