Here’s something I wrote up for the paper that might interest those of you who enjoy Speak E-Z’s:
A Bellingham restaurant will soon be coming out with its own barbecue sauce and is looking for customers to help design the label.
Dennis and Rosie Rayborn of Speak E-Z’s BBQ decided to bottle their sauce and sell it in local stores. After soliciting customer ideas in a contest, they come up with a name — Big D’s Bootleg BBQ Sauce (…….so good it should be illegal) and are now hosting a contest for a label design.
Whoever comes up with the winning design you will receive “All you can eat ribs” once a month for one year (or a substitute meal at equal or lesser value each month). The label and design will become property of the Rayborns.
The label design must be no more than 3 inches in diameter, 3 by 4 inches oval or rectangle. It can be monochrome or in color. Deadline to submit the label design is by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 24. The chosen design will be announced at 5 p.m. on Monday, August 10. Design entries can be dropped off at Speak E-Z’s BBQ, 2400 Meridian St., Bellingham, WA. 98225 during regular restaurant hours or mailed to the same address by the deadline. No purchase necessary. Don’t forget to include contact information.
