Bootblacks at GKE:NE?

July 11, 2013 in Bonus

But of course! These fine folks don’t just *work* on leather, they *live* it. They’re passionate about their craft and while some may spend their time debating which Doctor is the best (the correct answer is the 9th, by the way) – they spend theirs locked in an epic battle over which type of polish gives the best shine to their (and your) boots! So, if you’ve got some time and some leather that could use a little love, stop by the stand and say, “hey!”

Plus, half of all tips they make are being donated a charity called Child’s Play, which “seeks to improve the lives of children in hospitals around the world through the kindness and generosity of the video game industry and the power of play.” As their site says, “when gamers give back, it makes a difference!”

“There is definitely something sexy about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.” – Eliza Dushku
