Hoboken Carrotmob at Carpe Diem
Hoboken411 reader Andrew has organized the first ever “Carrotmob” here in New Jersey! So why not have brunch this weekend and support a good cause (especially all you super-active “green” environmentalists in Hoboken!)
“Carrotmob is a reverse boycott – a buycott, if you will. Carpe Diem, an Irish bar/restaurant, has committed an astounding 70% of sales for energy efficiency upgrades back into their business on May 2 and May 3. That simply means that you have to go there and make a purchase. The more people buy stuff, the more energy efficient the business can become. Eat, drink, be merry – and make the world a better place!
Support Carpe Diem for making an environmentally responsible choice – and have fun as you do it! “
Where: Carpe Diem bar/restaruant located at 1405 Grand Street, Hoboken, NJ
When: Saturday. May 2 and Sunday, May 3; 11am – 4pm
RSVP: On Facebook – http://tiny.cc/TXp4c | Twitter: NJCarrotmob
Carrotmob – Some background:
It was started in San Fran last year and has been pretty viral. There has been Carrotmobs in Charleston, Kansas City, Brooklyn and more – but never in NJ. This is the first. News 12 NJ is doing a piece on it too – I am pleased for that. I also think Hoboken411 is perfect to tell Hobokenites about this!
