Inauguration Party Update – Green Giveaway

We thought it’d be a good idea to include those of you who can’t make it to our Inaugural Party tomorrow evening. So in an effort to really be all-inclusive, we’ve got a great way for you to participate in the event.

Thanks to Sustain, Located at 3724 Frankfort Avenue at the Vogue Shopping Center (between Lexington Road & Frankfort Avenue), we’re giving away a couple great items. The award-winning “CHANGE” t-shirt , pictured at left, is totally organic and printed with soy ink. Why organic? Typical cotton t-shirts require 1/3 pound of pesticides and fertilizer to be made. Surprising to us, ordinary shirts themselves are only 73% cotton– the rest is all chemicals and resin left over from cotton production.

In addition to the shirt, Sustain has been generous enough to include Sigg Water Bottles in the giveaway. They’re non-leaching aluminum and are super-awesome-trendy. Did you know that nearly 1.5 million barrels of oil are used to produce the number of plastic water bottles used in the United States each year? And more than 60 million plastic bottles are discarded in landfills every day. So they’re great products.

Just leave a comment here on the site telling us why you’re excited about change. Use an actual email address in the “E-Mail” field so we can contact you when you win. Keep it clean and try not to disparage Dubya too terribly, folks. We’ll randomly select winners sometime tomorrow evening and will ship things out in a few days (or if you’re local, you can pick them up from us).

Shady Dealings at Highlands Walgreens

Are there shady dealings going on at the Walgreens located at Baxter and Highland in Louisville? We’re pretty sure.

A friend of ours parked in the Walgreens parking lot on Saturday evening around 6:00 P.M. and went into Starbucks, which is serviced by that particular parking lot. All is fine and dandy, right? He walked to his car about an hour later to find that his vehicle had been towed by Dave’s Towing Service. (We stopped by Walgreens– the only signs posted are at the back of the lot and they indicate that if you leave the property, you’ll be towed/Customer parking only.)

Our friend? Furious.

So he calls Dave’s (4822 Poplar Level Road, 502.962.1020) and asks WTF is up. The woman who answers the phone tells him he can’t get his car back til Monday morning when their office allegedly opens, it’ll be $130 in CASH and if he doesn’t like it, he can take it up with the Metro Councilcritter responsible for the area the car was towed from. B.S., we know, as even city towing lots are open on the weekends. And Dave’s only charges $55 to tow your car when you ask for their service and it’s not cash-only.
