Calling all pasty Pats


by Jay Gabler | 8/17/09

Garden of Eva, the florist at the corner of Snelling and Marshall in St. Paul, often advertises free roses for people with a given name. (They were once mocked by the bike shop across the street: gunther pick up a free kickstand.) Now it looks like Crown Video, at Franklin and 27th in Minneapolis—just across the street from Daily Planet HQ—is getting in on the act. That’s a pretty generous offer given how common the name Pat is. I wonder whether a Pat could just take the video, or if it’s mandatory that he/she accept both offers simultaneously.
