Help The Candle Lab after the Grandview fire, this Tuesday night (2/3), 7 – 9pm

January 21, 2009

[Update, 2/1: This event was postponed on 1/27 due to the snow!  We have rescheduled it for this Tuesday, 2/3.  Come out!]

[Note: There’s a chance this might be rescheduled so it doesn’t conflict with the COSI Tweetup (thanks for the heads-up @Irene_ExpCols).  What do you think?  Please weigh in.]

[Update, 1/21, 11:45am: This isn’t going to be rescheduled.  Make it happen and come to both, if you can.]

Here’s the deal.

A BUNCH of local businesses were affected by last Saturday’s by the fire in Grandview a couple weeks ago.

There are still a lot of unknowns at this point, in terms of who is going to need what, but one thing’s for sure: people are going to need some help.  From us (you and me).

My hope is that we’ll have a coordinated effort underway soon to help ALL the businesses involved, in a meaningful, responsible way.

And that there will be plenty of opportunities to do so.

Until then, however, if you’re looking for a way to help, here’s one fun, social way you can:

Pour Your Own.  Then Have Them Pour One For You.

When: Tuesday (2/3), from 7 – 19 pm

Where: The Candle Lab (Worthington location) + House Wine

What: Lounge in the Lab after hours, get to know Steve and Katesha, pour your own custom candle, then, while the wax cools, step next door and enjoy a glass of vino.

How much it’ll cost: $16 (one candle + one glass of wine.)

Why: Because you care.

Never been to The Candle Lab before?  Now’s the time.  Already a Lab member?  Share your love.  (Didn’t know you could become a member?  Come hither.)

Bring your spouse.  Bring your BFF.  Bring a neighbor.  Invite your twitter and Facebook friends.  Come show some love.

Here’s a map.

If you’re coming, maybe RSVP in the comments, if you want.

[Note: Since this is about supporting local businesses in their time of need, not tools, it’s worth mentioning that being on twitter isn’t a prerequisite for joining us, and neither is blogging or being on facebook, etc. OK?]

Do What You Want To Do.  Go Ahead.

When: January 10th — that’s a Saturday — 5:00ish*

*If you want to try and eat (together), a 5:00 arrival is recommended; otherwise, we’ll probably have to split up during the dinner rush and then convene at the bar. If you’re just coming for cocktails, we’ll be there from 5:00ish until 7:30ish.

Where: Tip Top –> Riffe Center (Studio Two).

What: Food and drinks, then hoofing it a couple blocks to catch Available Light‘s new show The Internationalist (starts at 8:00).

How much it’ll cost: At Tip Top, you can order anything you want and pay full price for it.  Happily.  For The Internationalist — and EVERY Available Light show — you can pay what you want.

(Note: tickets are cash only at the door.)

Why: Because it’s good for you.

Brought to you by @Jim1Coe and @slimgoodies.

Please RSVP in the comments so we can keep Tip Top in the loop.

Here’s a map.

Any questions?  Good.  See you then.

*Subject to change.  (Might have to be 5:00ish.)

[Update, 12/31: Is Available Light Theatre for you?]
