12 Eggs-rated Months @ Sunny Point Cafe

Sometimes an idea takes on a life of its own. Such was the case when we teamed up with Keith Wright of wright creative inc. to create some fun images for magazine ads to promote dinners at Sunny Point Café. It started with a simple thought, an egg. What came to be was an egg in a thong with the tag line “dinner for a thong,” playing off the old phrase “dinner for a song.”

It is hard to stop once a bunch of creative and somewhat wacky people get going. Soon we had a list of eggs in various attire and the idea for a calendar was born. Many thanks to Keith for the original thong idea, working with us as we hashed through the other ideas, and for being willing to brave creating all images for us. I believe he had some interesting shopping trips to obtain the props needed for the photos.

A grand time was had by all as we developed the sayings to go with the new images, and I spent a bunch of time scouring the web for non-traditional holidays and celebrations. Then the idea was hatched (ha) to have a percentage of sales benefit Planned Parenthood of Asheville and add bonus coupons for discounts and free stuff!

Sample pages from the calendar are shown here. The full calendar will be available for sale starting October 13, 2010 at Sunny Point Café and at Malaprop’s Bookstore. Get ‘em while they last.
