Marta Teegen to Open A Green Grocer in Echo Park

This Thursday, iPhone 4 fanatics in Pasadena get more than just FaceTime and a 5-megapixel camera with flash. Vertical Wine Bistro is offering up freebies for all those loyal queue denizens on Colorado Blvd.

The new iPhone arrives tomorrow. And to commemorate this moment in mobile history, Vertical Wine Bistro is rewarding all those “patiently” lined up at the Pasadena Apple Store with complimentary green tea and an invitation for a free appetizer upon their next visit to the restaurant on nearby Raymond Ave. Looking to celebrate your purchase post-haste? Bring your Apple receipt to Vertical Wine Bistro that day and get a same-day complimentary glass of Prosecco. 

The good news: the restaurant is only a five-minute walk away. The bad news: you’ll have to wait till 5 p.m to collect on the freebies.

But that shouldn’t matter; iPhone users are used to waiting.
