Anywho, I digress …

Loosely based on what might have happened. Or not.

Pick three

Posted by episode81 on May 17, 2009

I came across this website this morning while mindlessly surfing – is there any other kind?  The basic premise is that you pick three local businesses and plan on visiting them once a month to spend $50.  Sounds like a great idea to support the local economy. So I decided to give it a go.  First step, pick three local businesses.  Sounds easy.  Or so I thought.

When I am out and about, I like a non-fat latte … from Starbucks.  If I am traveling, I try and pick up a Starbucks mug as a memento of my trip. I like them because they hold about a pint of tea.  I like tea.  A lot.  I know, I know.  Why don’t I get tea when I am out then?

I don’t drink tea when I am out because I don’t like the tea on offer (enough said), but I need caffeine.  I don’t like sweet fizzy drinks, so I drink coffee.  I have quite a few mugs now.  You can get city, state and country mugs. Friends also pick them up for me on their travels, so I have a few from places I have never visited – New York, Beijing, Denver.

Anywho, I digress …

Coffee?  Starbucks – FAIL. Not independent.

Clothes? Banana Republic – FAIL.  Ann Taylor – FAIL.

Dinner out?  Mike’s Cafe – Score!  Tamarine – Score!  Evvia – Score!

And there you have it.  I need to eat out more 😉
