They were all wearing crazy purple wigs, and ordering drinks from a cocktail waitress. When I approached them they were very excited to try the samples, and I went around to the different clusters in the group showing them how to drink them and informing them about the product. They were all very nice and excited about it, and the man that was interested in buying some in the future was in this group.” – CU, Boulder Ski Trip “ Getting about 15 texts from different people saying this is the best invention ever!” -SF State
