And the winner is ...(drum roll please), Amanda with the anchor pattern design and Hi Neighbor on the bottom. Yes it is the tie pictured above. Click on the photo to view it in larger detail. The unveiling party on Friday night was the absolute best. Not only was the music great, but it sold out. Firehouse 13 was the best place to have this event. They did $2 Gansett lager drafts and had tall boys as well. We were given a nice space to display all ties and have folks vote for a fan favorite to win some Gansett Gear. Nik with the argyle design ended up winning that. The Rudeness, Boo City and The Slackers all set the stage for some great entertainment that kept everyone dancing. As you can tell from the photo we are going to make two ties. The red one will be a 2" skinny tie and the blue one will be the standard wide tie. So you'll have to options for dad this year. They'll be available with the purchase of a case of Gansett at package stores where Gansett is sold this Father's Day. So make sure your store has Gansett so you can snag one of these sweet ties. Congratulations to all the finalists including Chris in second and John in third. Check out the photo gallery below with pics from the party and some other ties.
