Here’s a little test; think back to Dec. 31, the night that you pledged whatever you happened to have pledged for your New Year’s resolution (let’s not kid ourselves; you made one, whether you call it that or not). Now look at the calendar. It’s the middle of February, friend. Have you stuck to it? Eating vegetables? Working out more? Well, even if your resolution wasn’t to do more things for charity, now’s as good a time as any to start. This weekend over at Dr. Strange Records, the Third Annual Food Not Bombs Sale is going down. Here’s how it works: Bring in an item for the homeless and receive 10 percent off of your purchase; bring in two or more and get a whopping 15 percent off. How’s that for a bargain? While any help is definitely appreciated, those benefitting are in need of rice, cereal, dry dog food for pets, toothpaste, clothing, toilet paper, etc. So get a good deal on some sweet music, do it for a good cause; it’s win-win, really.
Third Annual Food Not Bombs Sale at Dr. Strange Records, 7136 Amethyst Ave., Alta Loma, (909) 944-1778; www.drstrange.com, www.foodnotbombs.net. Sat-Sun, Feb. 19-20.
