Got a case of the Thursdays?

I swear it rains more here than Seattle. If you’re feeling blah, grab a cappuccino to get you to lunch, then get some Roots food! It’s so fresh and scrumptious it’ll wake up all your senses.  Your hunger pains will thank you. We’ll be at Innovation Park (7201 Hewitt Associates Dr) today and then heading to Birdsong Brewing tonight. Their new space is legit so you should definitely check it.

What’s going on this weekend? So glad you asked. We’ll be at Sycamore Brewing Friday night, then at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden for lunch Saturday and Sunday. To celebrate Earth Day, they’re having EarthFest all weekend. In addition to Roots food, there’s local beer and wine, live music, lawn games, and family crafts. AND the first 100 families to visit each day will receive a complimentary tree sapling. Good deal. So plan to get out there!
