– Flunking out of the Food Co-op (NYT, Ain 10/23/09)
The food co-op to which I dedicated a few Saturday nights over the past year is getting some national coverage via this entertaining and quite accurate account in the last week’s New York Times.
As of the evening hours of October 27th, 2009, PBR is yet to make an appearance on the store’s shelves, but be sure, the petition is in the works.
