What food/snacks/drinks have you brought into your LBS?

I've been thinking of bringing in some food/snacks/drinks to my LBS the next time I visit (soon). Has anyone here done the same?

I was thinking of bringing in a half gallon of milk, half gallon of egg nogg, and some cookies and brownies.

If I could catch them around 11AM-11:30AM I could bring in a pound of BBQ beef, a pound of smoked turkey, sandwich rolls, and a couple 6 packs of soda.

What do you think?

That would be most excellent! We appreciate anything, it really is the thought that counts.

We have had (Usually around Christmas, but other times as well):
Homemade cookies, cakes, brownies. Beer, wine, soda. One of our customers mom gets us the Bojangles tailgate special every Christmas, she got me some hashbrowns today Another customer is making us a chocalate cheese cake. This is the best Christmas ever.

You wouldn't be a LBS employee hoping to start a trend, by any chance?

Nope I just want to show appreciation for all the hard work and listening of crazy questions over the last year.

My Computer Shop guys inhale donuts !

I always carry in a couple a dozen mixed whenever I bring in my broken, for upgrade or for service home computer. Extras are put on the counter for customers. Some days I buy'em all pizza.

BTW, I always get same day service there, in by 9:30am, pick-up'n fixed by 6:00pm. Costs me $10.00. Sure beats the normal one or two week service turn around for everyone else !

Not felt the need at the LBS. I shop at several equally. However, they very well may be muffin guys. Maybe even hi-fibre muffs at that!!!

I had my wife bake a pumpkin pie for my troops before Thanksgiving. They didn't complain... For Christmas, I'll probably do cookies. My LBS guys are GREAT! By the bye - my LBS is "Highland Road Bicycles" in Baton Rouge, LA. I recommend them!

Ah... I see the problem. I've been bringing the guys in my LBS lutefisk and haggis. I wonder if that is why the last time I was there they greased my rims and brakepads for free?

The last time I was in my LBS they made a big unsolicited attempt to sell me an alloy framed racing machine I had absolutely no interest in.... I was only in there to get a spare tube! I wouldn't have minded so much had he not spent 10 minutes telling me what a piece of ***** the Surly LHT I had just built was. forget food, I need to take them a friggin clue! but I'm never going back again. I'm sticking to online, I don't need the B.S.

I go with regular intervals all year, I figure around Christmas other people are taking care of them food wise. I've done cookies and brownies in the evenings and afternoons, and blueberry muffins at 10 when the shop opens. They take really good care of me.

I've been known to bring in a pizza or a bucket of fried chicken. I've also been known to help eat the pizza that somebody else brought in.

I routinely bring in coffee. My wrench has a new born at home so he needs all the cafeine he can get.
