No FestiFoolin’

April 1, 2011

callin' all noodle heads

You could win a case of Al Dente Pasta and a $50 Zingerman’s gift certificate….

Not enough people in the world know about Ann Arbor’s annual FestiFools Parade. I want to change that. In my humble opinion, it’s what every college town needs. A perfect bridge connecting town and gown. On a personal level, it blends everything I value in life: Creativity. Fun. Inclusiveness. And, there’s even an  over-grown noodle head in the parade!

This morning I had a vision-that someday people all around the country would know about FestiFools. Kind of like Al Dente Pasta and Zingerman’s Deli, two businesses from Ann Arbor, Michigan who have, over time, garnered a national presence and reputation. I think it could happen!

What do you think? Do you believe in FestiFoolery? If so, then help me spread the word. Here is extra incentive to inspire social media action.

Al Dente Pasta’s FestiFool Challenge

If Al Dente Pasta can get 300 new Facebook Friends by Monday, April 4th at 4:00 then a random name will be drawn from the names of the people who commented on this blog post responding to the question.

Have you ever tried Al Dente® Pasta? If so, what is your favorite flavor?

The winner will receive 1 case of Al Dente® Pasta and a $50 gift certificate to Zingerman’s. In addition,  Al Dente® Pasta Company will make a $100 donation to FestiFools to help them in their mission of bringing FestiFoolery to us every April.

We currently have 420 Facebook Fans. The drawing will occur at 4:00 on Monday April 4th, exactly 24 hours after the FestiFools Parade begins on April 3rd, at 4:00. It will only happen if we have 720 fans by that time. Winner will be announced on Facebook.

PS. This is what Al Dente Pasta Looks like, just in case you are wondering. Also, even if you are not a local, you could use your gift certificate for Zingerman’s MailOrder.

    Yes, I lived the squid ink fettuccine (the black pasta). I made it with a mushroom alfredo and the contrast was awesome along with it tasting great too!
