Join Us at CA State Fair for Seattle's Best Coffee Red Cup Showdown

My husband and I have been going to the state fair every year since we met. Our first date was at the California State Fair. It holds a special place in our hearts and we go each year with a smile on our face knowing another year to celebrate being together. This year will be our 14th state fair! We are so happy to be taking our son for his 3rd state fair trip this summer. He loves all the animals and I love the great food. One of the best things to get at the state fair is an iced coffee drink. It can be so refreshing on the hot days of the fair.

This year I know where I will be headed first! The Seattle's Best Coffee booth for the Red Cup Showdown. The event is on July 14th 2012 and starts at 11am. The Red Cup Showdown is hosted by the awesome "Sandwich King" Jeff Mauro. The contest is a coffee recipe contest using Seattle's Best Coffee to win a chance to go to New York to compete with other state fair winners for the chance to win $10,000 and your drink served in the cafes of Seattle's Best Coffee. You can read more info on Facebook about the contest.

We will be there to watch the judging of the contest. Its a live competition where the participants will brew the coffee and create the drink in front of the judges. (the submission for your own drink has been closed)

I look forward to seeing (and hopefully meeting) Jeff Mauro at the California State Fair Seattle's Best Coffee Red Cup Showdown. I love coffee and the fair, its a perfect combo! There are some discounts on fair tickets on the CA State Fair website, including discounts for Costco members to buy tickets ahead of time. Also check with your local Big O Tires store to see if they still have fair coupons left, they have BOGO admission ticket coupons if you go to the store and ask. Always great to save a little money getting in so you can spend more on the food and iced coffee. #RedCupShowDown
