Hi, Pomegranate email subscribers! Herein lies lots of events we're planning before the end of the year, most are finalized, although we will be adding a few more as their dates come closer.

====================================
Also, a little tidbit thrown our way from Early To Bed (www.early2bed.com)


Recycle your vibrator batteries!

Hey folks in Chicago-- earlier this year the City of Chicago [finally] set up a battery-recycling program! While this doesn't make up for the fact that the blue bag program sucks dildos, it's nice to have a convenient option for keeping all those batteries-- which we know you're flying through-- from harming the environment.

You can drop off your used household batteries at any Chicago Public Library or Walgreens Drug Store! (http://www.chicagorecycling.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=57&Itemid=86)

We just dropped of at least 12lbs of 'em yesterday... the woman at Walgreens looked at us like we were crazy :)


Keep on buzzin' Chicago!
