We had the most fun at the RedEye Big Idea Awards

Thanks so much to our helpers Emily and Katie (far left and middle left)! Above, the four of us with our new friend Nina D’Angier from Thanks It Has Pockets (middle).

Shmeal was selected as a finalist for the RedEye Big Idea Awards!

We made shrimp and tofu spring rolls for the awards night! Check them out below. We gave these away for free at our booth. We also showed off a demo of our app, and got A LOT of signups to be a part of our beta test.

Thanks to everyone who came out!

Here’s our writeup in the RedEye:

We did not win the Food & Drink category. XO.marshmallow won with their monut, which is a marshmallow in the shape of a donut. If you tasted the monut, you would understand.
