How could I not pass this on? A website to locate non-corporate cafes, book stores, and movie theaters.

‘In An Analysis of the Potential Economic Impact of Austin Unchained (Nov. 15, 2003), Civic Economics reports: “For every $100 in consumer spending at Borders, the total local economic impact is only $13. The same amount spent with BookPeople (an independently owned bookstore) and Waterloo (an independently owned music store) yields more than three times the local economic impact.”‘

I’m totally for keeping it local when possible.
