Be A Part of the Foster Tasting Tour!

Posted on

Get ready for the second annual Foster Tasting Tour (formerly the Spirit of Foster Tasting Tour and Pub Crawl, which was far too long and didn’t fit on the posters).

Foster members are encouraged to sign up as a tasting stop before the deadline on Sunday, June 18.

Home Based Businesses and professional members are encouraged to be Tour Ambassadors. Ambassadors work four-hour shifts at a venue of their choice, handing out player books and stickers and telling players about their venue’s $5 special. Being an Ambassador is great because you get to introduce yourself to your neighbors and potential new clients!

“Being an ambassador for the Foster Tasting Tour was such a rewarding experience. Not only did I have the chance to socialize and interact with so many families and business owners in the Foster area to get to know them better but I was also able to share more about my home based business in a fun and relaxed environment. It was such a good way to get to know my neighbors better and understand the needs of the community. Plus it was just a blast!
– Jon Bebe, Collaborative Financial Group”

HOW THIS TOUR WORKS: FREE FOR FABA MEMBERS

  • All participating businesses must offer a $5 food, drink or other special during the tasting tour
  • We have both 21+ and family friendly businesses on the route so that everyone can participate
  • Patrons will receive a player passport to collect stickers in throughout the afternoon
  • Patrons have two opportunities to get a sticker at each venue:
    • 1 sticker when they order the special
    • 1 sticker when they order something other than the special
  • The more stickers patrons collect, the more they are eligible to win!
  • Prizes will be gift cards from participating businesses
  • Donate a gift card from your business for extra promotion
  • We will provide plastic boxes for patrons to submit their stickered books at the end of the event

YOUR EQUIPMENT

  • Official Tasting Tour Ambassador is assigned to you to hand out stickers and explain the event
  • The ambassador will bring:
    • Passports: For Tasting Tour players

YOUR DUTIES AS A FEATURED VENUE: PROMOTE!

  1. Set a $5 food, drink or other special and tell your ambassador what the special is
