Tea at the Hoedown

This past weekend Detroit held the 26th annual Downtown Hoedown.  I spent all day Saturday there working my first promotional job, spreading the love of Lipton White Tea.  This was also my first time ever being at the Hoedown, and let me tell ya, it was quite interesting. 

My job was basically to serve free samples and let the crowd know we had free samples, very easy.  To make the time go by, I tried to spice things up, doin some singin and dancin, crowd watching, trying to get other free stuff from other vendors.  Detroit festivals are fantastic for crowd watching enthusiasts like me.  I’m not sure how popular this Hoedown is, but there were quite the range of people, many I think from outside Michigan..caught a few southern accents.  The prevailing sights included: tattoos (confederate/union flags mostly), cleavage, cowboy hats (many made from bud light boxes), and tobacco of the chewing variety. 
so many people

In other news, here are the new books I’m reading.

    I just read the descriptions of all those books as a break from studying. They’re all on my list now. I especially liked the astute observation that all twenty somethings like the Daily Show.
