Recently, we learned about cash mobs--they're like flash mobs, but their purpose is to infuse a local business with cash. The word goes out across social media, and a crowd (hopefully) shows up at a business to spend money. A little group of us started talking about this on Facebook and decided that our first cash mob destination will be Odessa on Avenue A.
Goggla did the legwork, running the idea by the diner's manager, and they'll be ready and waiting for a mob on Wednesday, March 7, at 6:00 pm. At that time, meet at the "light" Odessa for dinner, then go next door to the "dark" Odessa for drinks. Bring cash.
The "light" Odessa is at 119 Avenue A, and the "dark" Odessa is at 117.
Spread the word (tweet, facebook, blog, whatever) and support this local business!
What struggling small business in the city should we Cash Mob next?
