Well, I heard back from the Bluesfest last week. And got REJECTED! Well, it is their loss. They have no idea about the delicious burritos that their patrons will be missing. I have to admit that I'm a bit confused and was surprised by some of the back and forth emails.....they didn't think that the Blackberry/iPhone burrito ordering idea I had was the right fit for their event. I was very surprised to have gotten that email -- people don't want to stand in line for food at the Bluesfest, they want to listen to music! This could have let people have the opportunity to spend less time in line. Oh well.
One really good thing about the whole process is that they asked for reviews of our food. I was able to go to some friends and friends of friends to get some reviews. And they were all stellar!!! When we finally update the Paso Doble web site, we'll post them up there. If money wasn't a problem, I really would like to open up some burrito restaurants. I still don't feel that Canada has a good burrito restaurant. Paso Doble would be unique here.

I will also admit that another good thing about not being accepted is it takes some of the pressure off of Bun's arrival. Bun will arrive on June 1 (so the theory goes) -- by the time of Bluesfest, baby wouldn't have been that old. So it will be nice not to have to work 15 hour days at the Bluesfes so soon after Bun is born.
Even though I got rejected, I will slowly work towards some of the ideas I had surrounding it. My day job at Adobe should be calming down starting next week, so hopefully I'll have some time in the evenings to work on my ideas.... With my ideas, hopefully I can make some good opportunities happen!
