Pick Up the Tab The Pitch: The Wristlok Tabber wristband with tabs from Reflectix (asi/81233) is ideal for food sales, amusement or water rides and all kinds of entertainment venues. It's also the perfect way to drive traffic to any trade-show booth. In fact, Ron Williams, Marketing Director at Fey Promotional Products Group and Reflectix clued us into a viral marketing campaign he did using the bracelet, which attracted hundreds of visitors to the Fey/Reflectix booth at a recent trade show. You can see it in action here: http://www.feyppg.com/EU/. Pricing on these bracelets starts at: 100; $2.69. Click here for more information: http://www.reflectix.com/. The Bottom Line: Pull it off.
Sing It Loud The Pitch: On the way to work this morning, the girl in the car behind me was singing like nobody's business. She looked like a crazy person, but let's face it; sometimes, you just can't help but sing at the top of your lungs. Brighter Promotions Inc. (asi/42016) has something fun for the singer in all of us and it's great for parties, bars, concerts and other special events: newLED 9-inch microphones in translucent colors.They are sold by the dozen at one for $2.63. Email: email@example.com. The Bottom Line: Step up to the mic.

The Bottom Line: Butter me up.
Feeling Trapped The Pitch: I know it's February, but it's 60 degrees here today, so I'm thinking of picnic time, which brings me toPicnic Time (asi/78065) and their cool new Sand Trap cutting board with slide-out drawers, cheese and wine tools and a recessed "sand trap" to hold cheese, olives and other food.It's made from eco-friendly bamboo in the shape of a putting green. It's pretty darn awesome for any party, especially those with golf-related themes. This would be a great tournament gift as well. Pricing starts at: 10; $60.
