Tis the Season, Part III: Park Slope Snowflake Tonight

The organizers of the Park Slope Snowflake Celebration, which takes place tonight, have certainly succeeded in getting the word out. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate or, at least, not deter people from taking advantage of the 150 shops, restaurants and cafes that will be open late or offering specials tonight. Participating shops will be open until 10PM and there will be entertainment and special sales everywhere. A list of participating shops is here. It's not yet clear whether the snow machines the Snowflake organizers are bringing in will be rained on or end up being redundant. Regardless, it's a great opportunity for people in the neighborhood to shop locally. One has the feeling that we'll be seeing more neighborhood business communities organizing similar efforts in the future.

Don't forget that the whole point of this effort is to raise folks' awareness of the need to support our locally-owned and -operated businesses if we want them to still be around and not be overrun with soulless boring chain stores.
