Your Weekly BroBasket Check-in
 

Shadow

First off, we owe you guys an apology for not checking in last week. Kenneth is the one that puts these emails together, and just as he was doing that last Friday, he got a call that his 87 year old dad was being taken to the emergency room.

GOOD NEWS: Dad is fine!! But, as any of us would do, Kenneth dropped everything when he got the call and went to check on his pop. Thus... no email. So this week, we’re gonna load you up with two weeks’ worth of BroBasket musings.

We Repeat: Alcohol Shortages Are Coming Your Way
As we said in the last email, there were weeks on end where the Rona forced distilleries to shut down entirely or cut back on production to follow social distancing protocols. Unfortunately, we’re now starting to see that trickle down into the supply chain. Stock up on what you love now, because shortages (specifically, tequila shortages) are already happening and they could last a while. 

As of right now, you'll notice the some of our fan favorites are not available on our site … No Viva Tequila. No Tequila Suprema. No Reposado Sampler etc. At least one or more of the tequilas in each of those BroBaskets is totally out of stock at our supplier. 

We were working on getting replacements (as we said in the last email), but because so many of our gifts will have issues and substitutions, we've decided that instead of trying to do replacements in so many gifts, we're just going to make all new gifts with new items!

And that brings us to our next issue … 

Our Photographer Got a 9 to 5 Job. 
We told you guys a while back that we were upgrading our gifts and that new pics would be on our site soon. Well there’s been a bit of a snag in our plans ….

Our photographer, who used to come see us randomly during the week and spend an entire day shooting product photos when ever we asked, just got a full time 9 to 5 job. It’s great news for him, but bad news for us, ‘cause now we’ve got to find us a new photog! Psssh … Ecommerce problems.

We were hoping to get him to do a weekend shoot here or there, but he’s burned out with the new job and needs his downtime. We get it. It sucks for us, but we get it. So … as soon as we find a new photographer, we’ll get those new pics uploaded for you!

Despite Some Hiccups, All is Well in BroBasket Land
Finally, we gotta end this thing on a good note. Like our Head Honcho Mike, always says “the people don’t just want to hear about our problems…we gotta give them something to feel good about.” So here goes … 

Aside from our photographer "chucking the deuces" and our suppliers running out of tequila, things at BroBasket are going really well. Our staff is handling the workload like the experts they are, and not needing to put in too much overtime to get orders out on time. But you know what the BEST part is?... there’s no work place drama (ya know how it be sometimes). Everyone actually likes everyone, gets along with each other, and we all pull together as a team. That is the best thing we could ask for!

On a Personal Note:

Gotta Get Out of Town Sometimes
Vanessa and her boo thang are planning a little San Diego trip next week. So this weekend, she’ll be getting her hair did so she’s on point before she heads out of town.

Say Hi To The Fishies
Nancy is headed to the Long Beach aquarium this weekend. At first we thought it was a little fishy, like she was actually going somewhere else and didn’t want to tell us. But, as it turns out, they’re still open even in the pandemic. Who knew? Okay, so it’s just the outside exhibits that are open, but there will still be plenty to see and do.

Well This Was Unexpected
When we were asking our staff if they have any fun weekend plans, Kenneth learned something brand new about Tony. The conversation went a little something like this:

Kenneth: “Hey Tony, what ya doing this weekend? The people want to know.”

Tony: “Working.”

Kenneth: (with a confused look on his face): “Working? What do you mean working? Working Where?”

Tony: “iHop.”

Kenneth: “iHop? You still work at iHop? I thought we poached you from them... “

Apparently Kenneth was the only one in the warehouse who didn’t know that Tony was still taking random weekend shifts at Tha Hop. It makes sense though … free pancakes are pretty much impossible to resist.
