Google has just started a program called 'Favorite Places' in which they sent out stickers with a little pixelated QR code on it. QR codes are quite popular in Japan, but are just getting a foothold here in the US. You can download an app for your cell phone that will allow you to scan the QR code (take a picture of it) and it will take you immediately to YoYo Joe's Google Local page with info on our hours, reviews, YouTube videos and more.
Google initially sent out the stickers to about 100,000 businesses, based on how popular their Google Local page was.
I downloaded an app for my iphone and tried it out. It did work (on the 3rd try) - how cool is that?
If you wanna try it, here is our QR code for our Google Local page:

I first posted this entry last year, but I decided to repost it for this year. Happy Holidays!
For as long back as I can remember, each Christmas Eve my father would go to work wearing a fuzzy red vest.
The pic at the bottom is the vest vintage 2008.

Three or so weeks after our first appearance on NBC10's 'The 10! Show,' we were surprised to hear from them again. They asked Joe to come up to be on Friday's show and highlight some cool last minute toys. Joe showed off the Sandwich Stacking Game from Melissa & Doug, the Hexbug Nano, the Quadrilla Musical set and the brand new Rockboard Scooter. The Scooter is awesome. Joe was just happy to not wreck while riding the scooter...

So, it's the biggest shopping day of the year and we get two feet of snow. Staples (next to us) closed at 2. Pier One (other side of us) closed earlier than that. Brew Ha Ha closed at noon. Not us. We're open. Call us nutty, call us crazy, we're open. Joe's got supplies horded in the back of the store and is prepared to spend the night. See what we do for you folks?
So, if you happened to be out there in the muck and want a break, stop in. It's warm and cozy. We've got holiday music going on and Joe's gonna break out the snacks (& beer) soon.
