While the Internet has certainly played a large role in globalization, it can also help community members think local.
For instance, if you've got nothing to do on a Saturday night — think again. There's plenty of businesses who regularly use Facebook as a way to let you know what's going on.
Here are some local businesses to know about on Facebook. "Like" their pages, never miss a thing — and increase your local support.
- Did you miss the Red Solo Cup party at Foxys Bar last week? Well, you probably wouldn't have if you followed the business on its Foxy's Bar Facebook page.
- Not a fan of Red Solo Cup? Try a red frozen drink from a local Mexican establishment. Follow the La Chimenea Saukville Facebook page or Beanies Mexican Restaurant Facebook page for updates on specials and events at all businesses.
- For a different nightlife style and the beer connoisseurs in the audience, follow Sir James Pub and stay up-to-date with the new beers available. The bar also recently added nitrogen taps to its offerings, according to its Facebook page.
