A couple of months ago, I was at Frank’s Studio running through some Organic Good Food song ideas. I had just happened to have brought him a couple bottles of ice-cold UNCLE MATT’S® Organic Orange Juice for our get together. I mentioned a new blend, Orange Mango, and Frank started immediately started hittin’ a beat and called it The Mango Tango. Then came, “It’s the blend, baby!”, then HOTTER to, “Blame it on the Blend, baby!”

Three weeks later, I was at his Studio and SEPTIMUS was layin’ down the final baseline for The Mango Tango. At the Studio, when they were really hittin’ it, some people came down from upstairs and started to dance!

‘Certifying’ UNCLE MATT’S® with the holy grail of COOL!

What better venue than a full house on a Friday night to debut The Mango Tango  and to begin the National Dance Craze with a Contest, Doin’  The Mango Tango!

The House of Hong was crushed, smashed and set on fire!

My friends, MR. Frank will knock ya down Brown and The Legendary  SEPTIMUS,

wrapped the holy grail of COOL right around UNCLE MATT’S®!

Believe me, it was an A-List EVENT with one HOT test-drive of The Mango Tango!

King County Councilmember Larry Gossett was there, ENJOYED a glass of ice-cold UNCLE MATT’S® Orange Mango and almost  danced to The Mango Tango!  Yeah, it was THAT HOT!

On the last note, Frank asked, “Well, what do you think … did you like it?” And from across the room, “Hell YEAH!” And, “It’s the blend, baby!”, “Where can I get that Matt’s JUICE?”, “WOW! THAT’S smooth! I can see myself drinkin’ THAT!”

Sammy Drain, who knows a little somethin’ about music, thought the beat was a driver and went on to say, “THAT’S a COOL commercial!”

And Friday night, after just one high-energy play though of The Mango Tango (Click on the FUN, short Video) , whenever I would get up and walk around all I had to do is kinda point to someone and they’d respond with a wink and a “Blame it on the Blend, baby!”

Here’s the WINNER of the FIRST Dance Contest. A Mom with two dancin’ kids! They were moving so fast this is as clear as the pics get! I think my friend Matt McLean, THE  actual UNCLE in UNCLE MATT’S®, will send her some ‘Official’ UNCLE MATT’S® stuff, too.

A contingent of Chinese Nationalists just happened to be there. And one of them just couldn’t get enough of The Mango Tango,

A WSFFN Dinner Party!

IMG_6676

My Good Food Friends –

I attended the Washington Sustainable Food & Farming Network’s Fundraising Dinner last year, and it was soooooooo DELICIOUSLY  FUN, and such an important Event in support of GOOD FOOD, that I thought I’d better bring my camera and take some pictures

to be able to share the Evening with those who, UNFORTUNATELY, weren’t there. AND maybe encourage a reader or two to make a contribution in support of WSFFN’S ‘good works’.

When you see the pics of the FOOD we savored, you’ll be envious! See YOU next year, huh.

The Washington Sustainable Food & Farming Network is a nonprofit organization that uses Education, Organizing and Advocacy to advance Sustainable Food and Farming Programs and Policies in Washington State.

What I love about The Washington Sustainable Food & Farming Network is that REAL Farmers work, advocate and lead  their Farm 2 School Program.
