The Grudge Match

It's time once again for our annual employee BBQ. And it has turned into a bit of a competition. Well......more like a hotly contested grudge match to be exact. Last year, in an attempt to boost morale and encourage participation, 2 employees stepped forward to challenge each other to a Cook-Off.

It didn't take long for sides to be chosen and the competition to begin. One team got a little overly ambitious with menu selection and ended up not having enough time to fully cook things before the staff flooded in on their lunch break. Needless to say, it was a landslide victory for the other team.

Now this year - for the re-match ~ things are getting really serious. There are team uniforms, some covert spying, attempts to poach team members and last but not least - some good old fashioned Smack Talk.

It's Vinnie's Vixens vs The Twin City Roasters. This is the email that Vinnie's Vixens received on Friday from The Roasters.

Subject: Vixens you better bring your A game Monday

"Monday is Cook Off rematch. You better bring you’re A game ladies.
Cus come Monday The Twin City Roasters are turning on the Heat. And the Special of the Day is Vixen!"

What’cha going to do when we come for you!

The Response:

"Who's the goon,boyfriend. Don't worry Vixens we will have security plus I think I will offer a picture with the Vixens for every favourable comment ( translation for your vote get a picture with you favourite Vixen)"

The Vixens got together this afternoon to do some of the prep work.

Our spies tell us The Roaster's were busy all day too. Tomorrow will be quite the day! The Vixens cannot lose The Golden Spatula 2 years in a row! Can't wait for lunch time ;)
