Youngstown Cash Mob Takes a Road Trip!

We’re going all the way… to Niles! Get your rib bibs out, Cash Mobsters, and meet us at Niki’z Pub this Saturday, May 18. Besides the ribs special, you can order a chicken parmesan dinner, or any of the other appetizers, salads and baskets on the menu, which can be perused here: Meatless meals include a vegetarian pita and a cheese quesadilla. We met owner Nick Logan at the Walrus Subs cash mob and they’re looking forward to our visit.

It sounds a little crazy to say that Niles is a road trip, but we’re trying not to spread ourselves too thin. There are so many fantastic locally owned businesses we want to put in the spotlight. We’re still hoping someone in the Warren/Trumbull Co. region steps up and starts a cash mob, to talk up the great places in our neighborhoods to the north.

Congratulations to Maggies Magic Muffins, winner of the June Cash Mob! Maggies has two locations, in Boardman and Austintown. Besides incredible muffins and cupcakes, Maggies features a full and delicious lunch menu. We’re bumping up the cash mob date to Saturday, June 8.

Thanks to local artist Lisa Zitello for designing Youngstown Cash Mob merchandise for us. Check out the organic cotton t-shirts and canvas totes, and vinyl window stickers. They will only be available online, and only until June 1. You can pick them up at the June Cash Mob at Maggies Magic Muffins, or pay a small shipping fee to have them delivered to you. This is not a fundraiser for the cash mob, merely a fun way to spread the word about our organization, while supporting a local artist.

For our July cash mob we’ll be trying something completely different: an activity cash mob! On our Facebook page there have been many suggestions: a themed hike at Mill Creek Park, an art or writing class at the Y, bowling or putt-putt golf. We will take nominations on Facebook the first Sunday in June, and vote the following weekend.

If you come to Niki’z Pub Saturday, stop by the table to put your name in for a free drawing for a gift certificate from Nona’s Family Closet. Nona’s and the North Lima Business & Shopping Complex came in close second and third in a lively vote with Niki’z. They, and the many businesses that have been nominated, have obviously earned the respect and affection of our communities.

Thanks for helping us spread the word!

Cash mob: like flash mob, only the singing is optional.
