You are cordially invited to join our Cash Mob St Paul MN group as we patronize two businesses affected by Green Line – Central Corridor Light Rail construction in St. Paul! We will meet Wednesday, August 22nd at 6pm at On’s Kitchen Thai Cuisine, 1613 University Avenue West, 55104. They are located on the north side of the street, about a half a block west of the intersection with Snelling Avenue. You can access their parking lot from University Avenue, park on a side street (Sherburne or Fry) and walk over, or take the bus. Their phone number is 651-644-1444 and website is for details.

If you arrive earlier than 6pm, please meet us at Midway Used and Rare Books, 1579 University Avenue, the NE corner with Snelling Avenue. Peruse the extensive selection of novels, rare books, comics, and games. We will gather at the doorway at 5:45pm to walk over to On’s for a scrumptious dinner. Their website is or phone at 651-644-7605 for information. They have free parking in rear for patrons. Entrance on Sherburne Avenue into large parking lot on South side of street.

Please RSVP via our Facebook page at!/pages/Cash-Mob-St-Paul-MN/297499490345966 and invite your friends to congregate with us. The more the merrier! While you are there, be so kind as to “Like” our group and get notified of upcoming gatherings. If you aren’t able to join us for this soiree, please support the businesses listed in this note soon. Let them know that you were sent by “Cash Mob St Paul.”

The cash mob rules are simple:
1. Spend $20 cash (more or less but cash does speed up the check out process),
2. Chat with three people that you don’t know but please bring along a friend or two, and
3. Enjoy yourself! We want this to be a fun experience for everyone.

Thank you for all the suggestions for this assembly, it was difficult to choose but this offered the opportunity to assist two nominees on the same evening. Merci beaucoup to our friends at Hirshfields for the insightful idea of a two-for-one. Meanwhile, we urge you to acquire items from myriad small independent businesses along the Green Line. View construction as you would a snowstorm, an inconvenience but at least you don’t have to scrape your windshield or wear boots! A constru-storm?

Other nominations to visit soon include:
Dubliner Pub
Little Szechuan
St. Paul Classic Cookie Company
Textile Center

Also, if you need a terrific gift for others or a fun item for yourself visit Something New in the Park, 2301 Como Avenue, Suite 101, St Paul 55108, or call 651-646-2423 for information about the local artists gift shoppe. We went there in July!

Please let us know if we should venture to another Green Line venue for September. Perhaps a Saturday afternoon? Thanks!
