#CuseMob: The 3rd Edition


#CuseMob 3 is on the books: Tuesday, March 5th, 2013 at 6pm. That’s one week from today. If there’s something on your calendar, clear it right off and join us for the most fun you’ll have all week.

What’s the deal with #CuseMob and how does it work?

In the Spring of 2012 we launched a new way to connect citizens and businesses. This unique facilitator of fun asked individuals (you, me, your aunt and uncle) to bring a small amount of cash (typically $10) to a locally-owned, independent business. Said individuals were then asked to spend said cash on a cool item at said business.

And while the transaction part was a neat way to support a local, independent business, the real fun came when mobbers interacted and met “IRL” as the kids call it these days. (IRL is ‘in real life’).

That’s #CuseMob. A fun way to support a locally-owned independent business and meet some great people at the same time.

Here’s how #CuseMob 3 is going to shake out: we’re going to give you some clues between now and Sunday as to the location of the mob (feel free to guess as many times as you like). Be social about the process — we’d love to have you share with friends :) On Monday morning, we’ll let you know if you were right with your guesses by announcing where the mob will take place. Tuesday… #CuseMob time — bring $10 cash to the location and have a blast! Easy as that!

    Man, I wish you guys would do a mob on a Saturday again. I work doubles on weekdays and can never go to anything when it’s on a weekday evening. :-(

    Not for nothin’ but if you have this downtown, I’ll invite my meetup group! We are scheduled for Tuesday and will be in that area. :-)

    Hey Meghan – Thanks for the note. I’m sure we’ll do another one on a Saturday. Appreciate you letting us know that you can’t make a weekday – want to make sure we’re including as many people as possible.

    Misty – The first clue RE Cuse Mob (tomorrow) will give you an idea about the location. Would love to have your meetup group there, either way :-D

    Thanks to you both for commenting,

    Jamie.
