The grand opening is slated for Thursday, March 20th, and if you happen to be traveling through JFK, make sure to stop by for giveaways from both Dylan’s and JetBlue.

I’d say he knows a thing or two about using marketing to get people to spend more on something than it is worth. At least in his case the product is somewhat original
