Bev it up!

It’s National Beverage Day! Just wanted to keep you in the know, so you have some small talk content while hydrating at the water cooler at work. Or you can talk about how it’s Taco Day uptown and discuss what tacos you’re going to savor today. Did you know you can get your tacos served over greens instead of in tortillas? Just ask!

Another important piece of knowledge is that we’ll also be in our Uptown spot tomorrow! Innovation Park will be happening too. AND Birdsong Brewing for supper time. Stay tuned for those menus later on. And we’d be thrilled to see your face today…and tomorrow.
