A worthy cause

24 Feb

I have a friend who, in honor of his 26th birthday, is raising $26,000 for an organization that gives Haitian women microloans. Haiti isn’t in the news as much anymore, but they still need help and supporting entrepreneurs there is an excellent way to help the country get on its feet.

His goal is to raise the $26,000 by Feb. 28. He’s well over halfway there but is still looking for donations. If you’d like to be a part of this mission, or to find out more about why he’s doing this, click here.

The Happiest Hour

20 Feb

For Seattle people:

Counting to ten – or at least eight – in Spanish has never been so fun! Ocho in Ballard is having a seriously cheap happy hour (at least for food).

  • about a dozen menu items for $2 each
  • $2 off house cocktails
  • 4 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 6 p.m. on weekends.

That’s some cheap eats, even if it’s not a super deal on drinks.
