MTA Doomsday Plan passed! Call your senator today.

As you may or may not know, the MTA is proposing a massive 23% fare hike to deal with their budget shortfall.  

To prevent this, the state government in Albany needs to pass the Ravitch/Silver plan - which asks all sectors to contribute to keep our city on the move – but a handful of senators are holding out against it.

Call your State Senator TODAY (deadline is Wednesday) and tell them:

To prevent 23% fare hikes and drastic service cuts, support the Ravitch/Silver plans!

I live on the west side of Manhattan and my Senator is Duane at (518) 455-2451.

In a future post, I will post about how to save money on the MTA - including best credit cards to use, pre-tax options, and other tricks!

Free Peanut Butter Anyone?

Yes, this is actually happening. In fact, Midtownlunch has a report on it, with a reader saying :

“I got a free apple, free small container of peanut butter to dip pre-cut apples in (which I also got). Other items include peanut energy bars, peanut brittle bars, small packages of peanut M&Ms, and as many spoonful samples of Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter as you can get away with.”

If you're in the area, or just love free peanut butter products. You have until 7:30pm today!

Wed., March 4 and Thurs., March 5

8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
