* What is the Waitress Action?
Code Pinkies to pose as waitresses where restaurants have tables set up on the public street (no risk of trespass). Show diners our waitress trays with glued on war toys scenario. "Did you order this?" we ask the diners. The answer to this question is, "well, you paid for it!" Educational leaflet is given the diner, looks like a restaurant menu, with war menu items and the cost. A great interactive way to have fun and education folks about the cost of the war!
