We’re leaving town!
We’re off to enjoy our first vacation since starting George Bowers Grocery in 2008. (Phew!) But, we won’t be poolside. We’ll be biking 500+ miles across the state of Iowa. We’re heading with a dozen friends to participate in RAGBRAI, the world’s oldest and largest bicycling event! We hear it is a lot like a rolling carnival: music, beer, lots of food! We thought it sounded perfect.
We’re both looking forward to seeing all the small towns and independent businesses along the way. If possible we’ll try to send updates on Facebook. However, we’ve been told the networks often crash because so many people (15,000+) show up in places Staunton-sized or smaller. We’ll keep you posted….
No lunch tomorrow!
We’ll be opening tomorrow afternoon (7/18) around 4-ish to host the final installment of Confessions of an Entrepreneur series. This month’s installment features community development leaders: Virtually Sisters, Project GROWS, hOUR Economy, and Parks & Rec. We won’t be serving sandwiches but you’ll still have access to plenty of beers and snacks. This is a great series of community conversations.
We’ll be closed starting Friday, July 19.
Fingers crossed we’ll be back (and not too sore or sunburned!) to reopen Wednesday, August 7.
Thanks for all your support. We hope to have tales to tell when we return!
