Tonight: Rewarding a Bar That's Doing the Right Thing

OK, so have you ever heard of a flash mob?

Well, this guy out in San Francisco decided to use the concept to reward businesses that go green.

And this guy in Arlington decided to completely steal that idea to reward a bar that went smoke-free, putting the idea on Facebook and hoping a few people might show up.

Apparently I'm not the only one sick of Virginia's smoky bars, because a pretty amazing 22 people say they're coming tonight. Although you never can trust those Evite/Facebook RSVP totals, can you?

Anyway, if you're looking for something to do on an otherwise-boring Tuesday night (y'know, besides voting), come to Eleventh in Clarendon tonight from 6-9pm and look for the guy in the green CRM t-shirt.

Ha, that was you. I came for the Amit Singh gathering downstairs, while first waiting at the bar (forever) for a drink. Saw the CRM tshirt, and thought of the Green Miles site, as that's the first place I'd heard about the program.)

Yeah, of the many things I liked about Eleventh, the bartender was not one of them, very slow with the drinks, then she put all 15 of us on one tab without telling us.
