Watauga County Democratic Party Hosts 4th Cash Mob on Saturday at Joe’s Italian Kitchen and Bare Essentials

Nov. 1, 2012. The Watauga County Democratic Party is hosting its 4th “cash mob” this Saturday, November 3.
The “mob” will gather first for lunch at Joe’s Italian Kitchen, located at 190 Boone Heights Drive., and then go hopping afterward at nearby Bare Essentials Natural Market, located at 273 Boone Heights Drive. Please gather at Joe’s Italian Kitchen between 11:30 a.m. and noon.
A cash mob is an organized infusion of economic stimulus into local businesses for the good of the whole community. The Watauga County cash mobs are being sponsored by the local Democratic Party as part of a “buy local” movement nationally.
Joe Cafaro opened Joe’s Italian Kitchen in August 2001, offering home-made Italian dishes cooked from hundred-year-old recipes Joe learned from his mother while growing up in Brooklyn. Cafaro moved to Charlotte in 1980 and worked as a chef in several restaurants before coming to Boone. A specialty of Joe’s Italian Kitchen are the meatballs, handmade every morning.
Bare Essentials is the only locally owned organic foods market in Boone. Ben Henderson and Mary Underwood bought the business in 1988 and have expanded it to include “cruelty-free” body care products and high quality supplements. Bare Essentials will be offering some special bargains especially for the cash mob, along with free food and drink samples of
natural products and a drawing for a special gift basket.
Past Watauga cash mobs have visited a variety of Watauga County businesses, including Blowing Rock’s Village Hardward, Papa Joe’s Restaurant, Appalachian Antique Mall, Mountain House Restaurant, David Miller’s Farm Supply and Hardware, and the Hilltop Drive In.
