Are you looking for more Derby in your life? IT’S HAPPENING!
So a while back we noticed, and perhaps you have, too, that there's a lot DOWN TIME in the derby. It's a couple of days of rip-roaring fun and then everyone sitting around for four or five days wishing they had something else to do. What a waste, we thought! Not to mention we have some massively talented artists at our fingertips but no easy and fun way for them to help us design products like totes, aprons, journals, stickers, etc. Again, what a waste!
We took the problem to the Woot code-monkeys. "We're too busy!" they scoffed. So we purchased a dozen donuts and approached them again. This time they replied, "We can give you two derbies a week, no more." Good enough for us!
Starting this week we have the ability to do up to two derbies a week. Occasionally we might do only one, in which case the derby works like it always has. When we run with two, here’s how it’ll all work:
Ah, the apron. Staple of the '50s housewife. Billboard for cooks who want to be kissed. Your blank canvas for this inaugural Derby thing. This week, tag your imagination and release it into the wild with a mind-blowing apron design. Ask yourself: What do you want people staring at while you're preparing their food?
No Black Aprons!
