Today (July 20, 2012), I was at the Bite of Seattle with two colleagues, and I stumbled upon the Seattle's Best Red Cup Showdown truck! It turns out it was just there for one day only, passing through on its way to Ohio. I was disappointed that the truck wouldn't be there for the weekend, but apparently they have to get on the road, to get to the Ohio State Fair next. I was actually at the Bite of Seattle to participate in a Food Lifeline event, which is a fundraiser in partnership with Tom Douglas to raise money for Food Lifeline. My friends and I were leave the Bite of Seattle, and there it was! A HUGE Seattle's Best truck! People in red Seattle's Best polo shirts and caps were giving out sample bags of Level 3 coffee, and there were sample cups of iced caramel lattes, and some kind of mint mocha drink too. And there was a prize wheel that you could spin too. Prizes included coupons, Seattle's Best gift cards and more. The prize wheel looked like a lot of fun but there was quite a line for it, so I didn't get a chance to spin it.
I did manage to snap a few photos of the big Seattle's Best Red Cup Showdown truck, and it's definitely worth sharing the pics here!
First, if you want to catch up with the Seattle's Best Red Cup Showdown truck, you can find it at these state fair events:
Ohio State Fair - July 25 - 27
Wisconsin State Fair - August 3 - 5
Illinois State Fair - August 9 - 11
Iowa State Fair - August 13 - 15
I hope you get the chance to run into Red Cup Showdown truck! This was definitely good luck on my part, and I got a kick out of seeing it up close and personal. You can follow Seattle's Best Coffee on Twitter too.
