WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A man who is trying to get his eco-friendly sealcoating business off the ground recently gave customers of a West Fargo bar a 2-for-1 deal.
Every bottle of beer they drank went toward a new parking lot.
Ron LaCoe is the owner of a West Fargo company that uses recycled glass in a mixture to refurbish parking lots and other paved surfaces. LaCoe does not drink alcohol, but came up with the idea during a regular night of karaoke at the Bordertown Bar and Grill in West Fargo.
LaCoe says the project turned out well, but he would never do it again. He says hauling a pickup load of stale month-old beer bottles from the bar to a glass crushing facility nearly made him pass out.
