Top 6 Reasons this was the Best Fall Fiesta Ever

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Thank you thank you thank you THANK YOU for all of your support surrounding Fall Fiesta: Welcome to the Jungle of Tikal. We hope you had as much fun as we did (and we had a lot of fun). Let’s recap a few of the new features that made this (dare we say it) the BEST FALL FIESTA YET:

6. New Venue: Paul Brown Stadium was classy, fun and had a stellar view of downtown Cincinnati. We’re going to chalk this one up as a victory. Plus, if you had a little forethought, you could sneak down to the locker room and wait for the Bengals players to show up… that’s not creepy, that’s being a good fan!

And this was while it was still light outside—once evening hit…wow!

5. New Fashion Statement: Everyone got into the bow tie spirit at Fall Fiesta, and rocked it like there was no tomorrow! It didn’t hurt that BowTie Cause’s Dhani Jones was present to help tie one on. Check out our very own Joe Berninger chat with Fox19 and Dhani about CoEd’s custom bow tie. Upset that you haven’t snagged one yet? Click here to order yours!

We’ve been a bit quiet over at Bookmarks this week, but that’s because we’re still recovering from the best Fall Fiesta ever! Final numbers will be announced next week, but our preliminary estimates tell the story of how much fun you had. Thanks to you, we had a sellout crowd with us at Paul Brown Stadium on Saturday. Also joining us was former NFL player Dhani Jones and BowTie Cause for the launch of the CoEd Bow Tie! For this edition of Friday Photo Fiesta here are our favorite photos of people in our Bow Tie on Saturday night.
