Capitalism with a Cause

Public Greens Urban Kitchen is a new restaurant located in my former home of Indianapolis, right on the Monon Trail. People run, bike and walk this trail every day.

The most unique thing about Public Greens is all the profits will go to the Patachou Foundation to feed food-insecure children in the city. Across from the new restaurant is a micro farm which grows some of the produce used in the restaurant and for the foundation. It may be the very first of its kind and it's such a wonderful venture, I hope it catches on in other cities!

Pantone's Color of the Year: Marsala

Kravet celebrated Pantone's 2015 color of the year with these clever cookies by Jennifer Scarpella.
Pantone named Marsala, an "earthy red wine" inspired hue, the 2015 Color of the Year.
The color "embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness," Leatrice Eiseman, director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a press release.
The selection is the company's prediction for what will be a popular hue for designs and products in the coming year.
Pantone is a global color company known for its standardized color matching system. It uses numeric codes to help designers find the exact color they need. Marsala's code is Pantone 18-1438.
