Dear Paris,

Community ownership turns out to be an attractive topic. 30 people attended our Co-ops & Cocktails event on Thursday and they convinced us: a timely conversation about how East Siders having a say in development is truly timeless. Watch for your next chance to band together for the launch of the East Side Community Investment Cooperative. Speaking of Exciting Launches - we've got an East Side Orbiter Coupon book cued up and we want to promote you! Do you want to sell the Orbiter at your place? Help us spread the good word about deals and more local economic activity for the Holidays. Click here to learn how and get a stack of these for Shop Small - Small Business Saturday Nov 25th!
