My Friends and fellow Waffle House Fans,
Here are some updates, sorry most are sad.
- Many of you know I made a public bet with Simon Conway of 1040 WHO Radio in Des Moines. The bet was in regards to the ACC Championship football game. Florida State was playing Georgia Tech. I bet him dinner at Waffle House that Georgia Tech would silence the war chants. Georgia Tech did not, so I congratulated Simon and while he acknowledged it, we tentatively planned for after the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl came and went, and we started to make preparations for a date. Sadly for us but good for Simon, he took on another show for a sister station of WHO. As such he believes that he won’t have the time to commit to this. As a good faith way to pay the bet, I’ll make a small donation to St Jude’s or the Puppy Jake Foundation. So that kind of leaves us to plan a trip without our local celebrity.
- Speaking of a trip, we want to do one. Here are some dates we are looking at:
- 5/19 or 5/20
- We are still working on getting our storefront up. Our Veep/Creative Director should have the items ready for approval. We will have the same shirts and magnets as before, as well as some new items.
- There still is not a Waffle House in Iowa.
- Looking for up to eight people in different areas of Iowa to take pictures for us. For details, email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or send us a message on Twitter/Facebook. You will get a Waffle House coffee mug for your pictures and some other swag when we get our storefront up. Here are the areas we are looking for help in as an example with counties listed:
- Northwest Iowa (Lyon, Osceola, Dickinson, Emmet, Sioux, Obrien, Clay, Palo Alto, Plymouth, Cherokee, Buena Vista, Pocahontas).
