As we move into the new year, recession/ depression in full swing, we hope you've been able to keep your morale up. It definitely takes a little more imagination to be thrifty or to keep business going. It's great to see people's creativity shine through this somewhat dreary time.
I was able to attend Snow Day last Friday night, the Beardsley Farm benefit at Barley's. With a little ingenuity and thought they were able to draw quite a crowd. It was really encouraging to see so many people come out to support the cause even when money's been a little tight. They sold soup donated by local restaurants, they had merchandise for sale, people played music, and all the proceeds from Fat Tire and Sweetwater 420 went to them. I heard they did pretty well in raising money (note to fundraiser coordinators: involve beer)
A slight tangent but on the same subject of Beardsley Farm, I heard a rumor that you could kill and butcher your own cow there. Is this true? The reasoning, I heard, is that if you eat meat, you should know how it got to your plate. As much as I like the distance between the living cow and my hamburger, I somewhat agree with this notion. Field trip, anyone?
Anyway, if you're still feeling a little anxious about the times, here's a little something for you, inspired by Max and because I have too much free time. I'd like to specifically dedicate it to two of my faves, Mr. Discordia and Mr. Anonymous. XOXO.
