Do you have you have your Keep It Local Card? I think that it's really important to support local business. Maybe it's because I'm a local business myself, but I really think it's because they have something to offer that no place else has.
Las night I was at Irma's Burgers (mmmmm, onion rings), and I was happy to get my Keep It Local card! It was just $10 that goes to support local businesses, and you can get discounts at great places all around town including some of my favorites: Collected Thread, Irma's Burgers, Cuppies and Joe, Sushi Neko, and more!
I know you want one now, go ou get one at www.keepitlocalok.com.
