Introducing the Zazzle Zinger! A New Smoothie from Calafia Restaurant

June 11, 2009

Thanks to Chef Charlie Ayers (formerly of Google fame) and his new Palo Alto restaurant, Calafia we have an awesome smoothie named after us! The Zazzle Zinger is organic carrot juice, organic orange juice, frozen organic peaches, vanilla yogurt, orange blossom honey, and ice. If that doesn’t put a pep in your step, I’m pretty sure the Zazzle Zinger is customizable so you can just add a little banana, and maybe drop the peaches? Check out some iPhone shots from a Zazzle Team member below, I promise I will get over there soon and get some pics of Zazzlers enjoying this tasty treat in HI RES.

Was Vader the Worst or Best Dad?

June 10, 2009

Father’s Day is quick approaching and that got me thinking about dads, more specifically Darth Vader (isn’t that the first person you think about when someone says dad?). I was thinking, as a dad, he wasn’t really that bad a guy. I mean sure he tried to kill his only children and in the process cut off the hand of his son BUT in the end he did turn out to be a nice guy and all. So what do you guys think? Was Vader a good dad or not so good dad?

Resor Rides: Zazzle Seller Rides across the US for Charity

June 8, 2009

Zazzle seller, Andrew Resor (ResorRides) just finished a bike ride from St. Augustine, Florida to San Diego, California (2,989 miles) in support of the charity Bikes Not Bombs. To help make money for the charity, Andrew opened a Zazzle store to sell merchandise and donate all the proceeds. He also took donations through his website, ResorRides.com. While on the road, biking for 8+ hours a day, Andrew was a lean-mean charity billboard with awesome performance t-shirts from Zazzle featuring his store URL on the front and back. We’re impressed with Andrew’s accomplishments and proud that he chose Zazzle as part of his charitable event. We asked Andrew to give us a little summary of his ride. Here’s what he said:

“I guess doing something like this really allows you to step back and go over what’s really important in life. I realized that it is easily possible to survive with 40lbs of gear and food, but also enjoy it as well. Before I left I thought I’d miss certain things. Maybe my car, a computer, a microwave, etc.

The only things I really missed were my family, friends, and a bed I could spread out on.

Flying somewhere is one thing and taking a road trip is another. With each of those you get a glimpse into what life is like, but it’s still only a small glimpse.

When you travel by bicycle, especially alone, you really get to experience what’s in between point A and B. Rolling down the road at 12mph with frequent stops afforded me the opportunity to meet and see what everyone else misses.

This country unbelievably diverse, beautiful, interesting, exciting, sometimes frightening and more than anything else, HUGE.”

Check out the pics below of Andrew on his journey from Florida to California and some products from his donate-to-charity Zazzle Store.
