My 5 Favorite Promotions of the Week: Chicago Cubs Branded Fanny Packs, Bloody Amazon Echos and More
Not gonna lie, guys—I've spent the better part of the week deciding whether or not to pour my paycheck into an IronPigs Jawn T-shirt and hat. And to make matters worse, there's a ton of other promotional products that caught my eye this week, and my wallet cannot handle the pressure.
From "Stranger Things"-inspired sports giveaways and a blood-spattered Amazon Echo to (yes, you guessed it) more brewery merchandise, here is this week's installment of the Fave 5.

I love the camp mug look of these drinkware products, and I am a huge sucker for teal branding.

*UPDATE* we’ve sold out of Sad Cat socks & are down to just a few small & medium baseball shirts. _____ We’ve got some very limited new merch items available in Chinatown! _____ First up is our sad cat socks! Bring sad cat with you everywhere! These socks won’t last very long & we only have a few of them left so act fast! _____ Next up is our newest baseball shirt! The inspiration for this shirt came from our favorite local baseball team. Shirts are limited & once they’re gone, they’re gone! _____ Both new merch items are only available in our Chinatown taproom. _____ There’s still some Hello, LA & Pleasant Pils cans in the fridge to-go, fun guest taps from @heaterallenbeer & @jesterkingbrewery, & a new green tea iced tea that was made in house! Lots going on this Tuesday!

I considered making a very long drive to acquire this T-shirt, and it turns out I'm not the only one. Plus, the socks are already sold out.
3. Chicago Cubs "Stranger Things" Fanny Pack

"Stranger Things" is a huge seller these days, but that doesn't mean teams and businesses can just phone it in with their inspired giveaways. I love what the Cubs did for the ballpark's promotional giveaway, since fanny packs are a major trend right now.

I get to wear a tee with animals on it, AND help an animal rescue? I am fully on board.
5. "Us" Amazon Echo

I'm assuming this was part of a press kit celebrating the DVD release of "Us," and I love that the marketing team decided to go all out with this blood-splattered Amazon Echo. (Yes, it did feel strange typing that sentence.)
