Twain’s trivia night will benefit re:loom
Full disclosure: I do volunteer work with re:loom and I love eating at Twain’s. It’s my gastroniche.
Trivia begins at 8 p.m. and 10 percent of the night’s sales will be donated to re:loom.
In other re:loom news, some of the products made at the weavehouse will be on display during Atlanta International Fashion Week.
Update: Looks like the designer pulled out of the fashion show over the weekend, but I didn’t find out until this afternoon. I’m told that models wearing the designs of April Mehraban will also be wearing re:loom accessories in future shows.
Saporta Report also carried a recent column by Suzanne Burnes, Executive Director of Sustainable Atlanta, in which she mentioned a partnership in the works between re:loom and Emory University.
“The first has aggressive commitments to sustainability, including local sourcing and diversion of materials from landfills,” Burnes writes. “The second provides individuals a path out of homelessness by creating jobs to manufacture rugs and other woven products from scrap garments.”

There’s a lot of positive energy surrounding the re:loom program right now and it’s a worthy investment of the community’s effort. This program does make a difference, changing lives for the better and making our community better as a result.
Want to help? Come on down to Twain’s on Aug. 5, buy a few drinks and play team trivia. More people showing up means more support for re:loom and support for one of our locally-owned businesses.
