Drink, Then Shop, Then Drink Some More—That's Really The Only Way to Do It

Posted By on Thu, Dec 15, 2011 at 2:53 PM


If you have more shopping to do, consider sandwiching it between happy hours during tonight’s Ohio City Cash Mob. Not only that, the owners of the still-a-secret local business chosen to be mobbed is offering a 10 percent discount to anyone bringing along a can of food to donate.

Cashmobbers will meet at the Market Garden Brewery at 5:45 for pre-shopping lubrication (look for Andrew in the “brown beast” hat), then will gather in front of the brewery at 6:30 for the short walk to a local store for shopping. The post-mob happy hour will be at ABC Tavern. The only requirement is that everyone spend $20 in the store.

If you somehow don’t know what a Cash Mob is by now, it’s a way to support small businesses thought up right here in Cleveland, and yes, social media is the main conduit for mob organization. In a few short months, the concept has spread faster than Santa’s Reindeer can fly and Cash Mobs are now happening all over the world.

Get more info or RSVP on the Cash Mob Facebook page, or follow @Cashmobs.
