Instead of a flash mob, Think Local First, Elevation DC, Old Takoma Business Association, Takoma Foundation, and Trohv are hosting a cash mob in Takoma on March 14 from 6-8 p.m. That means you pick up a passport at Trohv and get it stamped at 11 local businesses in the neighborhood to win a cool local prize, with a ticketed afterparty with food, drinks, and live music to follow.
