In tiny font, and the very tail-end of the job summary that I received when I was hired at John Ascuaga’s Nugget, underneath ‘Create graphics for web’ was a line reading “…and other duties as needed.”
That other duty came in the form of putting on a pig mascot costume and heading down to the Best in the West Nugget Rib Cook-Off media luncheon.
Meet Mr. Ribster:
This newest addition to the Ascuaga family is a fun, happy little pig who will create a family friendly atmosphere at the Nugget Rib Cook-Off, while at the same time creating a character who is the face of the annual event.
I had a lot of fun as Mr. Ribster, and am very excited for his piggy-debut at the Nugget Rib Cook-Off, September 28 – August 2.
And to the poor soul who will be donning this ensemble in the heat of the Labor Day weekend…good luck to you!
