John has made it to the semi finals! The challenge is to cook the best pulled pork sandwich! Doing proper pulled pork is an all day process, and as with any cooking, you need clean hands. John has though ahead and ordered himself one of Pot-O-Gold’s handwash stations to keep his hands nice and clean.

The timer shows 30 minutes left on the clock and the pork is ready to come out of the pit and get ready for shredding. Nature calls at the worst time, but luckily John also ordered himself one of Pot-O-Gold’s Standard Portable Toilets to keep by his station for just this reason. He was in and out in a flash!

Mudbugs, Spice, and Everything Nice

The peak of crawfish season is upon us. It’s the time of year when crawfish are most plentiful and are at their biggest. At the peak of crawfish season people go full bore into crawfish boils! 40lb sacks of live crawfish go flying out of stores along with cajun spices, onions, mushrooms, lemons, garlic, corn, bread and whatever else people like to throw into their boil.

People invite their family and friends to partake in the festivities. Everyone is gathered for a meal perhaps they only get a chance to eat once a year. Folding card tables are laid out and covered in news paper and the sound of the burner is roaring in the background. Fold out canopies are splayed to combat the heat of the beating sun.

People’s mouths are watering as the spices go into the water on the burner and are being churned by a boat oar. After the water comes to a rolling boil, the freshly rinsed crawfish are dumped into the boling pot strainer then are lowered into the boiling water along with whatever else you wish to be boiled in the delicious brew.

A few minutes pass and the crawfish are done. They are pulled from their spicy bath and are then dumped on the card tables ready for people to dig in. Everything has soaked up all the spices in the boil. The crawfish, corn, potatoes, mushrooms, etc are covered in pepper. This stops no one as everything just tastes so delicious.

With pepper covering everyones hands and sweat dripping from their brow due to the spice and the weather, people will need to clean their hands to effectivly wipe their face without risk of getting pepper in their eyes.

Pot-O-Gold has got your back. Pot-O-Gold’s hand wash stations are best in class mobile sinks with mounted soap dispensers. They offer a convenient solution for clean hands at a crawfish boil which is important for those who dont want their eyes burning. Rent porta potties, dumpsters, and more from Pot-O-Gold

Tying The Knot

Emily meets a really great guy named Bernie while relaxing under a big oak tree in the park, and they hit it off immediately. They feel as if they can talk to each other about anything right off the bat. They talk about future plans, politics, food, travel, art, and music. They are the same in virtually every way while being different enough to keep things interesting. Hours fly by while it only seems like minutes. Emily notices the sun starting to fall and asks to see Bernie’s cell phone. She proceeds to put her number into his phone and says “Call me” then she hand his phone back and heads home for the evening. The following day as she is just getting in from work she receives a call from Bernie.

Fast forward three years…

Emily and Bernie have been together for three amazing years. They couldnt be happier. Emily has been planning a huge surprise for Bernie this coming Valentines Day evening. Emily had given Bernie a blindfold the night before and told him to put it on before she arrives at his house to pick him. Emily brings a blindfolded Bernie to the very spot they met. Emily removed Bernie’s blindfold and he beholds a beautiful scene. There is a large quilt laid out on the ground under the oak tree with a spread of food and champagne. Candles illuminate the area with a warm glow. He lays eyes on Emily for the first time all day. She is more beautiful than he has ever seen her. Her brown hair lays over her right shoulder. Her eyes the deepest green, her cheeks rosy, her lips painted a ruby red. Shes wearing the necklace he gave her on their one year anniversary and the most stunning emerald green dress he has ever seen. He feels completely under dressed even while wearing a tux. The only word he can muster is “wow.” Neither of them really have an appetite. All they can do is stare at each other not breaking eye contact. “I have something for you,” Emily says. “I have something for you too,” Bernie retorts. “Okay then,” says Emily. “Close your eyes and I’ll close mine. On the count of 3 we both open.” “Okay,” says Bernie. “1…2…3…” Both open their eyes to see that they are both kneeling holding small boxes open presenting rings. “Yes,” they both said in unison.

Fast forward six months later…

Suck It Up

Jeff has had a long day at work. He makes his home before his wife. He is tired. Eyes sunk in and blood shot. Hunched shoulders and dragging feel. All he wants to do is take a nap before his wife gets home. On his way upstairs he hears something that doesnt sound right coming from the basement. He opens the door to the basement only to see he has water half way up the stairs. He runs to his garage to shut off the master breaker to his house, grabs a flashlight and proceeds down into the basement. He wades in the water to try and find the cause of this and he sees its the main water line. After Jeff crawls out of the basement to shut off the water at the meter he has to weigh his options. He looks around for water pumps and pumping services. He sees that Pot-O-Gold has a new vacuum service!

Movies

We all love a good movie. Watching one of your favorite stories play out in front of you can be an amazing experience that you will be talking about for a while. Every once in a while (usually on holidays) people will organize a movie screening in a park of some sorts. Droves of people show up with blankets, pillows, and snacks with their friends or significant other in tow.

Say its Valentines Day since it’s right around the corner. You and your significant other show up to this event with a nice comfy blanket to lie on, some chocolates to snack on, and champagne to sip.You find a nice spot on a hill with a clear view of the screen. Love Actually is playing. Love is in the air and the champagne starts flowing! Right around the time where Hugh Grant stands up for Britian’s interests, nature calls. The champagne went right through you.

You look around to find a restroom, and you see a row of golden portable toilets. Pot-O-Gold has saved the day and you can get on with your evening!
