"No, our customer appreciation dinner will not be the spectacle that the Super Bowl is, but we'll sure as hell try," said Robert Grapple, assistant CEO of EJP & Sensus, a pipeline specialists company who reserved Lucas Oil Stadium, this year's site of the Super Bowl in Indianapolis, for a company event nearly two weeks after the big game.
