Company's Coming The Pitch: We have overnight guests at Huston's B&B many weekends in the summer (this coming weekend, it will be the outlaws, as I like to call my inlaws). As Managing Editor Joan Chaykin says, "Everyone's your friend when you have a pool!" And I love it. Here's a perfect product for backyard/poolside BBQs: New spice rubs from Provender Int'l. (asi/79975)will have your ribs "falling off the bone," they say. They start with a sweet rub and add salt and spices to make it the perfect rub for slow cooking finger-lickin'-good meat. They must be ordered in even case packs; pricing starts at: 144; $6.25. Click here: http://79975.asisupplier.com/. The Bottom Line: Rub it in.
Toothy Grin The Pitch: Poor Steve-O is at the dentist at this very moment, and I have to say my husband is kind of a scaredy cat when it comes to docs of any kind. Wouldn't it be a cute idea for the local dentist to give each patient a tooth-shaped stress reliever they could squeeze during cleanings and exams? You can get such an item from O&S Supply Co. LLC (asi/74779), starting at: 100; $1.15. See it here: http://oslinepromo.com/. The Bottom Line: Stress bites.
Weigh Your Options The Pitch: Summer always brings travel top of mind (of course, as you know as a savvy business traveler yourself, travel is a year-round happening).Logomark (asi/67866)makes trips easier with item GT9300. It's aluggage scale with 39-inch tape measure.It can measure up to 65 lbs. and features a locking second dial to hold the reading. Pricing starts at: 50; $14.95. Pitch this to your clients running incentive trips as part of a pre-trip excitement builder package. Check it out: http://www.logomark.com/. The Bottom Line: Good measure.
It's Outta Here The Pitch: Cutie Derek Jeter, 3000 hits ... your thoughts? That Yankee sure knows how to rally fans in the stand. Oceantop USA (asi/74816) offers unique team jersey-shaped USB drives, which are as thin as a credit card. They are fun for college and pro teams alike. Email email@example.com for pricing and other information. The Bottom Line: Team work.
