The rules are simple: show up with $20 to spend,talk to three people you didn't know before, and have fun.Take the RTA if you can, as that will help with parking, and don't forget to stop in some of the other W. 25th businesses before or after. Lets make this the BEST Cash Mob to support the BEST market in America!
