Stuff the Coffee Bus…with Blankets

Sunflower is providing hot beverages to the folks at the United Methodist OpenDoor day center on December 16th. In addition to warming bellies on that day, we’d love to warm bodies and hearts! That’s where you can help:

We’re having a blanket-making CRAFT PARTY at the ICT Pop-Up Urban Park on Sunday, December 15th, and YOU’RE INVITED!

Join the baristas in making tied fleece blankets, donate a home-made blanket of your own, or new, store-bought blankets. Open Door says hats and gloves are also needed this time of year.

We’ll be making blankets like this: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Tied-Fleece-Blanket/

The large tables at the Pop-up Park will make perfect work benches. Bring your sewing scissors and wear your silly Christmas sweaters!

We’d love to see your beautiful faces and make fleece blankets together. Enjoy coffee from the bus, enjoy lunch from Wheat Street Dogs, and work with us to keep all of our neighbors warm and cozy.

Local makeover: Best Fringe Forever

One of the best things about being a local small business is getting to know other small business owners. There’s no END to the creativity Wichita’s business owners bring to the table.

Case in point: the owners of Wichita’s rad mobile photo booth Lamphouse Photo Company have started another business renting out some of their killer d├ęcor: Best Fringe Forever. We saw them asking for locations to display their fabulous fringe recently and volunteered the coffee bus!

Conan and Katherine came through with a beautiful fringe to decorate Telulah bus. We had a complete makeover, and absolutely no damage to the bus’ paint job.

Please enjoy these fun photos we took at the last Food Trucks at the Fountain rally, and consider using Best Fringe Forever to dress up your next party.

Adventures with Third Place Brewing

Happy St. Patrick’s day! Sunflower Espresso and friends have some fun things for you to check out.

Through this weekend, Third Place Brewing is slinging up some Irish Coffees using PT’s Coffee Roasting Co.’s own Flying Monkey espresso blend (supplied by yours truly). This drink is a delicious blend of coffee, Jameson Irish whisky, brown sugar, and heavy whipping cream that’s been slightly whipped. We even tested it out for ourselves!

On Saturday, check out the Delano St. Patrick’s day parade and stop in to say “hi”! We’ll be parked on Sycamore, north of the Delano Clock Tower and south of the Advanced Learning Library from 10 am to 2 pm. We hope to see you there!
