Three years running, and each year the anticipation and number of tailgaters grows.
It’s time to get ready for February 3, 2013. Fun starts at 3 p.m.!

Don’t miss the big game in HD projected on our 35 ft. cove wall. Play games, prizes and bring the kids to jump around in the inflatable obstacle course. Taste, enjoy, and vote on the abundance of homemade selections of chili, as we compete for the coveted G1 Chili Pepper Award.

A “Giant” Super Bowl Party

Our second annual Super Bowl Party on Feb. 5th, 2012 was a “Giant” success. We wanted to recap it here in case you missed our Facebook album post just a few days after the party.

The Giants defeated the Patriots 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI, which gave the Giants their fourth Super Bowl title. The game was action packed and even BIGGER than life as shown on our 35-foot cove wall.

Over 215 guests enjoyed our large selection of tailgating fare including nachos, brats, hot dogs, and of course our selection of almost 10 chili varieties. The Gamut One Chili Cook Off is a highly anticipated savory event where our guests taste, enjoy, taste some more and then vote on their favorite chili selections.


The chili varieties were outstanding this year, but only one could be crowned as winner. The 2012 Golden Chili Pepper Award goes to Dewey Koshenina for his Spicy Chicken & Mushroom White Chili.

When asked about what made his winning chili so special, Dewey proudly responded that his recipe is not for the lighthearted. “Chili should make your tongue scream for your Mommy,” Dewey said with a grin.

Dewey beat out 8 other entries, including the 2011 winning recipe by Bill Bartlett.


As always, the Gamut One party is family friendly. With face painting, basketball, and of
course the bouncy obstacle course, all the kids had a blast!


Thank you to all who supported Beyond the Yellow Ribbon with your silent auction bids for the VIP Lounge as well as purchasing raffle tickets. Your support has made a difference with this great organization and the lives of our troops.


This is always a big hit for our party. The expressions and posing creativity of the kids is always a blast! If you would like an electronic copy of a Photo Booth image, just email us at the studio. See a sample of some of our favorites here.

We look forward to celebrating with you all again next year!

Pick ‘Em Challenge Winner

Many entered, but only 1 could win the G1 Studios 2012 Pick ‘Em Challenge contest. Congratulations to Roger Kadrlik who picked the Patriots to win the AFC Championship and the NY Giants to win the NFC Championship.

Roger won a movie family pack of tickets and a concessions gift card. When told about his winning prize, Roger said, ” We haven’t been to the movies in a long time. Maybe we’ll even take the grand kids.”

We are now just 2 weeks away from the big game which is a rematch of Super Bowl XLII. In that 2008 battle, the Giants defeated the Patriots 17-14, giving the Patriots their only loss of that season. The Patriots will be seeking vengeance. Can they pull it off?

Come to Gamut One Studios for the party starting at 3 p.m. on Sunday Feb. 5th. We have invited clients, friends and family. If you have not replied yet, be sure to check your email as we just sent out a reminder RSVP.  Your RSVP today will help us plan with food and beverage numbers.

G1 Super Bowl Party: Cheers & Cheese Heads

On February 6, 2011, Super Bowl XLV broke the audience record ratings with 111 million viewers. Gamut One Studios took part in this event as host to over 120 of our friends, family and wonderful clients, at our studio in Edina.

The kick-off party was more than just for the big game; it was to give thanks to our supporters for a great start to our re-branding as Gamut One Studios or “G1 Studios.”

The party and the thrill of the NFC North, brought out the Packer fans inside many of the best Viking fans, who won’t yet admit it. With a 31-25 Packer victory over the Steelers, the tightly contested game kept everyone glued to our 22 ft. HD screen, projected on our cove wall.

In true “tailgating” style, we filled the back of a pickup truck with two kegs of Summit Pale Ale, bottles of Michelob Golden Draft and parked it in our 10,000 sq. ft. studio. Fans cozied up on sofas, settled in at pub tables or parked themselves on their own lawn chairs.

The half time show brought out many dancers, both young and young at heart. Cathy Monsoor, studio manager, lead the charge to the front of the projection screen as she was compelled by the rhythmic dance beats of Black Eyed Peas’ hit song “I Gotta Feeling.”

Cathy, donning her Jared Allen jersey, could be heard from the dance floor, “This is for all the Viking fans, who may never see our team in the Super Bowl!”

We wanted to create an environment where families could all enjoy this evening together. What better way than a  36 ft. inflated obstacle course for the kids? The kids raced, jumped, bounced and piled up on each other and everyone had a blast.

Many kids also tested out their passing skills at the “Aaron Rodgers Passing Challenge” game. Kids as young as four, attempted to complete a pass with a Nerf® football to the receiver “Donald Driver.” Parents ought to be proud. There is a good deal of talent on the horizon!

It wouldn’t be a party without food and we had plenty. The hearty menu included meatballs, veggies, hot dogs, nachos, beef-wrapped pickles and of course, seven varieties of cheese. We also want to thank so many of you who contributed to the plethora of desserts. We are still enjoying the sweets.

Most popular of all our fare, was our chili cook off. Congratulations to Bill Bartlett, who takes home the first “Golden Chili Pepper” trophy for his winning recipe. The award ceremony will take place in late March of 2011. G1 Blog readers will be the first to get the announcement.

Among the eight entries, including chicken, turkey, and beef chili, Bartlett’s was the only sirloin steak recipe. Many in the competition complained to the judges and even confronted Bartlett at half time about his meat selection, but Bill’s only reply was, “Why wouldn’t you go with sirloin? I want that golden pepper trophy and I won’t let chicken or turkey get in my way!”

Everyone had a chance to put on their silly face or foam cheese hat and ham it up for our Photo Booth. We filled our magnetic wall with some of these great shots. Next time you’re at the studio, check it out.

We plan to make this an annual party for the Super Bowl. There’s no telling who will be playing, but we know it will be fun because of all the great people we work with everyday.
