We didn’t want to pass up the chance to remind you there is still plenty of time to dive into this year’s Shark Week. And incredibly enough this year is the thirtieth year of the annual week of shark viewing excitement. Shark Week 2018 began Sunday and runs through this weekend on the Discovery Channel. So you can still catch up with shows like Tiger Shark Invasion and Shark After Dark Live tonight, and tomorrow night watch a special edition of one of the best game shows ever on television, as host Ben Bailey takes his riders on a trivial pursuit of nautical terms on Cash Cab. But there’s much more coming, plus lots of content from past years online. Find all the listings for the remainder of the week and online shows (even a Guy Fieri appearance) at the Discovery website here.
And even though the biggest day to watch Steven Spielberg’s Jaws every year is on Fourth of July weekend (when the story is set), Narragansett Beer–the beer Quint drinks and crushes in the famous scene from the movie, the oldest beer company in New England, and the beer Dr. Seuss drew ads for early in his career–is back again this summer expanding on Shark Week, with plenty of Jaws viewing parties and related seaside activities over the next few weeks. Check out their entire schedule at their website here.
‘Gansett has released again its award-winning lager beer in replica vintage 1975 cans, as seen in Jaws–you’ll want to get them before they sell out. Then “Crush it like Quint,” and post photos on the company’s Facebook page. They also have giant Quint and shark standees in their distribution area where you can get a photo and upload it to their social media sites. “Gansett has gone all out, issuing a great Summer Guide (check it out here) with summer recipes, activity schedule, and summer fun ideas. And make your own Shark Week Viewing Kit at the ‘Gansett shop here, where you’ll find anything and everything with your favorite salty sailor in action. Here is just one of the locals checking out one of the standees:
And here is one of the recipes from the 2018 Narragansett Summer Guide:
You’ll find a variety of wearable and useful branded products available at the ‘Gansett website, Gansett.com, including their “1975 Collection” for Jaws fans (here).
We also highly recommend trying the Chumsicle Buffet virtual reality experience with the world’s fastest shark, a Mako, getting a frozen treat. Check it out here, sponsored by Dairy Queen.
