How could I say no to mermaids and tasty margaritas?
An email from hangout Salty Senorita just showed up in my inbox a little while ago, asking for help.
"We need your help today!," it reads. "The Peoria City Council is voting in a matter of days to give Salty Senorita a new liquor license that would allow us to remain open. Several council members want to SHUT US DOWN! Please help us by sending a brief note to the Mayor and the City Council telling them why you support us and how Salty is an asset to our community!"
Apparently, showing support is as easy as clicking on the restaurant's website, where there's a simple form you can fill out that'll send a note for you.
