Many of us already eat “green” – by opting for either organic or locally-grown food. But did you know that it’s possible to drink sustainably as well? To find out more, visit Amendment XXI in LoHi, which is featuring Earth-friendly wines during its April wine tastings. During the tastings, Amendment XXI owner Leo Bortolotto will offer samples of a number environmentally-friendly wines and explain the processes vineyards use to produce “greener” vintages. You might be surprised to learn that these wines are not only good for the Earth, but taste good too!

Amendment XXI is offering five percent off of any Earth-friendly wine during the month of April. The shop also encourages environmentally-minded behavior year-round, by offering a four-bottle , reusable tote for $3.99. Customers receive a 5 percent discount every time they fill the bag. And finally, farm-to-food fans will be pleased to discover that this summer, Amendment XXI will serve as a drop-off point for Grant Family Farms, part of the Community Supported Agriculture movement.

Open since 2009, Amendment XXI is located on the corner of 15th and Boulder Streets in the heart of Lower Highland. Be sure to check out this clip of Leo being interviewed about Earth friendly wine on KWGN’s Everyday show. You can view it here:

Little Man Ice Cream owner Paul Tamburello found a unique way to drive sales of frozen treats on the coldest day of the year. On Tuesday – when the high was a one below zero – he offered $1 pints of ice cream (two per family) for those brave enough to weather the cold. The deal not only resonated with bargain-hunting ice-cream lovers, but also caught the attention of 9News
and 7News, which both ran stories on Little Man’s offer.

Believe it or not, the chilly deal was so popular that Little Man nearly ran out of ice cream and at one point, people lined up on the sidewalk on 16th Street for what Paul had dubbed the “pink-cheeked pints”! Check out the photos of Paul’s interviews with the stations and customers taking advantage of the offer. You can also view the 9News story here.

We had a great time helping Paul publicize the deal. Thanks to the hearty camera operators for covering the story and the loyal customers who made the offer such a success. Remember, Little Man also has sandwiches, soups and hot drinks if you’re in the mood for something warm.
