Columbia Sportswear Christmas Elves Serve Hot Cider.
Out front of the Columbia Sportswear flagship store on Hennepin Avenue in Uptown Minneapolis today, Santa's little helpers were serving hot cinnamon cider off their "icicle tricycle." The ladies were attired in the latest and and smartest outerwear for distaff elves, while the gent, in a bold red layered look, comped passers-by with discount store coupons to make Christmas shopping a breeze.
As for the Icicle Tricycle I learned there is only one of them, it travels to all Columbia Flagship stores, and even makes the trek overseas. There is generally an assigned Columbia Crew, though outside CONUS local help is generally hired to work the deal.
I asked if I could hire on to pedal the three-wheeler. I'm filling out a job application tonite, and will specify a locale where the temp never drops below 50-degrees.
