During the entire month of February, Sticky Fingers Bakery (on Park Road, east of 14th) will be selling our new “I’m Clucky to Have You” Valentine’s cards, which you can personalize with a note to your sweetheart then add it to our heart-shaped window display inside the restaurant.
The back of card includes a special note of compassion for passersby outside the restaurant to read—and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these cards will benefit COK’s work on behalf of farmed animals. Each card is just $1. Continues after the jump.
