Vote early and often!

I named this cowl Tammany because it is a Tweed Ring.   (History Nerd joke.)

Tammany Hall was the home of crooked politics in NYC in the late 19th and early 20th century, led by Boss Tweed.  But now you can vote early and often legally and for a fun cause.

The  Old Skool Cafe, a 1940’s styled youth-run supper club, is in the running for a Super Bowl commercial, courtesy of  Intuit’s Small Business Big Game contest.  Old Skool made it to the second round, and you can vote for them EVERY DAY for the next two weeks.   I’m offering the cowl pattern free for the duration of the voting for those who vote.  I’m doing this on a trust basis, so please go vote if you download the pattern. And vote often!

Old Skool helps break the cycle of violence, crime and incarceration by meeting three critical needs: real-world skills, a sense of belonging and a support system. Learning every aspect of the restaurant business, youth ages 16 – 22, gain transferable work skills necessary for life success.

Imagine a safe haven for youth to learn and succeed. Imagine an incredible restaurant that satisfies both the appetite and the soul. Old Skool Cafe…Come hungry. Leave INSPIRED.

(I’ve never been lucky enough to eat there, but I hear the food is great.)

So vote, already.  Why should beer companies get all the attention?

  2. Same here: voted and downloaded. Will plan to keep voting. I tend to watch the Super Bowl more for the ads anyway so it would be nice to see Old Skool’s ad mixed in with the umpteen beer and truck spots. Thanks! I’ve had some yarn in the stash just waiting for a pattern like this.

  3. What a great venture :)
