Don’t forget! Saturday, March 28th at 8:30pm is Earth Hour.

Earth Hour

If you’re staying in for the night don’t forget to turn off your lights. But if you’re venturing out then head over to Chanoso’s and Oishii Sushi Lounge where you can dine by candlelight as both restaurants turn out the lights for one hour. Chef Jennifer Hillis is even preparing a special menu for the night.

“Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.” (

I’ll keep you posted as we hear about other restaurants and businesses that are doing their part for Earth Hour on March 28, 2009.
