Our friends at Explore Midtown recently launched their new campaign to highlight the culture that makes up the area. From the history of this neighborhood, to new businesses adding their touch to the already diverse community, there is a ton to see and do. We know Midtown has a lot to offer but here’s a checklist of Saturday morning activities that will set you up to experience a little bit of everything.
1. Coffee please
Have you checked out the new Temple Coffee on the corner of K and 22nd? Built in the late 1880’s, owner Sean Kohmescher envisioned the interior of the building himself. Apart from changing the windows, we love that this new shop preserved the history of this building. Start your day off with a coffee or our personal favorite – a Bliss tea.
2. Keep it fresh
Okay, it’s not a secret we’re huge fans of the Midtown Farmer’s Market. With the recent expansion the market is your Saturday morning go to for not only fresh local produce, but artisan crafts, plenty of prepared foods, and we heard a rumor that this week they’ll be adding avocados and cheese! Nothing is better than getting your grocery shopping done for the week right in the heart of Midtown.
3. Feed me
While we’re sure you’re plenty stocked on food, it’s also hard to resist all the food options right in the MARRS building. We don’t have a favorite, but Azul only serves brunch on the weekends, so we like to take advantage of that on Saturday mornings. The free chips and salsa is an added bonus.
4. Let us shop
What better way to wrap up your day than with some shopping? We love shopping at TRUE (TOTALLY RECYCLED URBAN EXCHANGE) because of their cause! This retail clothing boutique opened last year by WEAVE and gives a portion of proceeds raised through the store to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. You can bring in clothes to donate or sell them in exchange for store credit. Whatever you decide to do, we’re sure you’ll leave with an outfit you love as they have a little bit of everything.
5. Something sweet
Maybe your day is winding down, and you’re looking for that way to wrap up your day. Ginger Elizabeth is nothing new to the area and we heard that on Saturday April 23rd, they’ll be serving a chocolate breakfast menu until 4pm! We’re excited about everything from the breakfast affagato to the cruffin. So, while you’ve probably been there before, don’t miss out on this special one day menu.
Join us April 23rd as we Explore Midtown together for a collaborative instameet with Explore Midtown and Temple Coffee. We will start at the new Temple Coffee on 2200 K Street at 10:00am, we’ll grab coffee, mingle with local creatives, and walk to the Midtown Farmer’s Market together! There will be prize giveaways from Sutter’s Fort, Temple Coffee, and the Midtown Farmers Market.
