Altadena Cash Mobs: Have a Bite at Hen’s Teeth Square

This Saturday, the newly established Altadena Cash Mobs team -- a grassroots effort to promote and support local businesses -- targets Hen’s Teeth Square.

This Saturday, Altadena Cash Mobs encourages locals to check out shops on the corner of Woodbury and Los Robles, including the Sidewalk Café and Puebla Tacos.

If you’ve never visited Hen’s Teeth Square before, then let’s sweeten the pot. The corner is an area of historical significance and art. Pasadena Daily Photo’s blog post from a few years ago will walk you through it, with a little help from her friends.

And speaking of walking, while you’re in the neighborhood, stroll one block west to . See what neighborhood volunteers and the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy were able to do with a vacant dirt lot.

Again? I can't seem to access the FB page, says it is closed. I've been doing all the Cash Mobs, haven't heard anything about anyone else doing them instead...

I am glad that Save Altadena has taken this over since it appears that the previous cash mobs weren't happening and got too bogged down in controversy. Poncitlan Meat Market is a great place to start. Great Mexican food!

Lisa- The members of Save Altadena have been cash mobbing since before we started Save Altadena. We believe in suppoorting our local businesses. A couple of our members started a specific group to do cash mobbing, had difficulty with the border and flammed out it seems for working so hard at it. We are just getting back to one of our core objectives, WalMart or not, to support local Altadena Businesses. It has nothing to do with that other group, we will attend their events when they plan another. We support Altadena business and have, like I said, since before we were fighting Wal Mart.

The first cash mob organized by the group that became Save Altadena was organized by Stephanie Clements in June 2011. Sorry our web page is being renovated and will be back up about Wed,

If she has switched to being a convenience store from being a carniceria, then her store would be affected by Walmart -- provided that Walmart has quick service. Walmart may or may not have a deli, the deli may not carry ethnic foods, and Walmart will not necessarily be open 24 hours.
