Weekly Updates from in.gredients Neighborhood Grocer

View this email in your browser



What a week!  Thanks to all those who came out to in.sessions.  We had a great time and hope y’all did, too.  Each and every musician and band that came through brought something special, but a few of our favorites were POWERSOLO, Decorator, Yellow Red Sparks, Rock Bottom String Band, Vita and the Woolf, and Kiven.  

Check out more photos on our Facebook page.  Have some to share? Post ‘em and tag us!  And, of course, look for more live music on the porch this spring!  

Weekly Specials:

This week it’s all about “BYOC” (Bring Your Own Container). Rather than donating the usual 5 cents to our community non-profit partner each time you bring in a container for reuse, this week we’ll donate 10 cents per container!  Help us finish off our partnership with SafePlace on a high note by practicing zero waste shopping.  

New Community Partner Voting is OPEN! 

This week we’re asking you to help us decide our next non-profit partner by voting online or in person (at our front counter when you check out).  The four finalists in the running are: EcoRise Youth Innovations, Attendance Records, GALS, and Kealing PTA.  You have until March 23rd to cast your vote for the new partnership that kicks off on April 1st.  

Events:

Geeks Who Drink Trivia

Thursday, March 20th at 7pm

Come compete with your friends and neighbors for some coveted prizes (including $25 and $10 store credit for first and second place, respectively!).  This is a free and open event but please note that the content is not intended for children.   

Comedy Night
Thursday, March 20th 
@ 9pm (after trivia)

 Team Member Ben Cholok hosts in.gredients’ second “Home Grown Comedy” night.  “Locally sourced” talent performing from 9-11pm, directly following Geeks Who Drink Trivia.  Lighten up after the intensity of the quiz competition (or celebrate your victory) and enjoy some laughs with us.     

Cherrywood Lantern Walk

Friday, March 21st at Dusk
We’re glad to be the final stop on Cherrywood’s first “Lantern Walk,” a celebration of the Baha’i & Persian New Year, and the first day of Spring!  Join your neighbors at Pocket Park on 34th and Cherrywood at 7pm, then stroll up here to in.gredients with lanterns and glow bracelets to finish off the evening.   We’ll have plenty of local beverages and eats to cap a fine evening. 

Global Soup Party 
w/ Cooking Up Cultures

Sunday, March 23rd at 5-8pm

Global Soup is a once a month party that celebrates Austin’s multicultural community.  This month at in.gredients, a local chef will be serving up delicious soup (BYOBowl) with live music and conversation.  Get tickets here.  Proceeds benefit Cooking Up Cultures.

Send us a message if you’d like to plan an event here – we’re a great spot to host your next happy hour, meeting, or birthday party.  

Promotions and News:

New Seasonal Hours

We’re now open until 11pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Coffee (etc.) of the Month

We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Equal Exchange, one of the pioneers in Fair Trade cooperatives that dates back to 1986.  Find their rich “Love Buzz” coffee blend on sale all month, plus look for their emblem elsewhere in our bulk section for the highest quality, small-producer dried fruits and nuts.  We’re especially excited about their dried mango, which has the complex flavor and taste only small-batch harvests and sustainably-grown fruits can bring.  Be on the lookout for their baking cocoa, cashews, and California almonds, too!

Weekly Updates from in.gredients Neighborhood Grocer

The festival is upon us!  We kick off our own little party this Thursday evening at 5:15 PM with four bands from all over the world.  Through Saturday evening, you’ll be able to experience March’s musical energy and diversity without leaving your neighborhood.  Ditch the mayhem of downtown and come have some fun with us.  Full line up below!

Weekly Specials:

We like innovation and trying new things. That’s why we’re partnering with a mobile coupon platform developed here in Austin, TX called Fosbury.  Not only is it paperless, but it’s also geospecific, which means it cues up the deal when you’re close.  Pretty cool if you ask us.  We’re glad to be a part of their “SXSW Can’t Miss Guide,” which highlights deals at 30 spots around town.  Click here to see the full guide and download our “Free Coffee” coupon!

Instant Win Game!

 Last March we offered “Belly Bites” for new Belly users.  This year we’re doing Instant Wins: every 150 “taps” a random customer will win a free cup of coffee and every 400, a free t-shirt!  Tap to Belly, tap to play! Check out our Belly page for a full list of rewards.  

Events:

No Trivia This Week!

Sorry to any and all who were getting in their trivia groove, but we’re not hosting a Geeks Who Drink quiz this week due to our in.sessions line up of acoustic music.  Come by and hang with us anyway, and get revved up for next week. Our new “Locally Sourced” Comedy showcase will be back, too!

Gardener’s Market!
Saturday, March 15th, 9am-12pm

Join us for yet another morning of beautiful seedlings from YardFarm, compost from Joe’s Organics, and Dripping Springs Ollas!  Vendors will be on hand to answer all your questions.  

Cherrywood Lantern Walk

Friday, March 21st at Dusk
We’re glad to be the final stop on Cherrywood’s first “Lantern Walk,” a celebration of the Baha’i & Persian New Year, and the first day of Spring!  Join your neighbors at Pocket Park on 34th and Cherrywood at 7pm, then stroll up here to in.gredients with lanterns and glow bracelets to finish off the evening.

Featured New Vendor – Revolver Brewing

Some might say we’re “obsessively local,” and they may be right.  When it comes to beer, we’re pretty much devoted to the Austin breweries we’ve known and loved since day one.  But there’s always room for something a little different, a little new, and a little delicious, especially if it’s coming from not-too-far-from-here Texas, aka Granbury.  What’s more? These guys use aquifer water and their brewery was supposed to be a fracking plant.  That’s what we call upcycling for the win.

Weekly Update and Specials :: March 4th – 11th

Weekly Updates from in.gredients Neighborhood Grocer

View this email in your browser



We’re getting pretty excited for our line up of in.sessions out on the porch next week and hope you are, too.  See below for more details on what’s shaping up to be a great few days.  In the meantime, come by and take advantage of our weekly deals, including the much-anticipated return of Pure Luck Farm & Dairy fresh chevre.  Thank goodness those goats have finished “kidding” their young! 

Seasonal Hours
Beginning 3/6, we’ll be open until 11pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Weekly Specials:

Morehart Farm is owned and operated by two Cherrywood residents. Their heritage “New Hampshire” hens are laying beautiful (and plentiful!) eggs after a slower winter season.  Come in and grab a dozen – on sale this week for $4.99 – and taste the difference of happy, heritage hens.

Pure Luck Farm and Dairy in Dripping Springs, Texas makes some of the most luxurious goat-milk cheeses around.  The only reason not to fall in love with their cheeses is the inevitability of having to go without it for a few months while the goats nurse their young (aka “kidding”). To celebrate its return, we’re putting their fresh chevre on sale at $9.49/half pound (save $3/lb).  

JBG Organic Beets - $2.49/bunch

One crop that doesn’t mind these cold nights is one of our favorites: beets!  We’ll be saying goodbye to this winter crop before long, so this week we’re offering them up on sale.  Want a really delicious side dish?  Roast ‘em, peel ‘em, and toss them with the Pure Luck Chevre that’s also on sale this week.  Your dinner guests will be talking about your culinary skills for days.  

Nature’s Path “Kidz” Cereal 

This week find all of our kid cereals on sale.  These are organic, gluten free, and delicious.  Channel your inner child and enjoy a bowl in house – we’ll give you a complimentary splash of rich Mill-King milk (or almond/soy, if you prefer) and soon you’ll be drinking that chocolatey, milky goodness just like when you were ten.  

Events:

Send us a message if you’d like to plan an event here – we’re a great spot to host your next happy hour, meeting, or birthday party.  

Geeks Who Drink Trivia

Thursday, March 6th at 7pm

Geeks Who Drink Trivia is back!  Come compete with your friends and neighbors for some coveted prizes (including $25 store credit!).  This is a free and open event but please note that the content is not intended for children.

Gardener’s Market!
Saturday, March 8th, 9am-12pm

Join us for yet another morning of beautiful seedlings from YardFarm, compost from Joe’s Organics, and Dripping Springs Ollas!  Vendors will be on hand to answer all your questions.  

Live Music on the Porch
Sunday, March 9th, 2-4pm

A musician’s co-op from Bloomington, Indiana - The Grant St. Musicians – is kicking off our week of live music a bit early with a Sunday afternoon set of tunes ranging from Daniel Johnston to Hank Williams.  Whet your appetite for the rest of the week with this relaxed Sunday session on our porch.  

Acoustic porch sessions are back!  Catch bands from all over the world and all over the city for three days of neighborhood music.  We kick things off the evening of Thursday, March 13th, and run all day Friday, and all day Saturday.  Find specifics, including band announcements here.  The icing on the cake?  We’ll have beer and soda floats made with Lick Ice Cream available on Friday and Saturday.  See y’all soon!

Recipe of the Week  –  Broccoli Cheddar Soup

When Urban Roots brings us a box of beautiful broccoli from their 2 acres of heaven down on Bolm Road, we just can’t help but turn it into a rich and delicious soup, especially when winter rears its chilly head the way it has this week.  Come enjoy a cup or bowl with us at the shop this week, or take the ingredients home and make a big pot with the following recipe.  Salud!

Adapted from The Pioneer Woman Cooks

  • 2 Tbsp. Better Than Bouillon 
  • 4 lbs broccoli

  4. Add the nutmeg and chipotle powder, then the broccoli and a dash of salt and lots of black pepper.
  5. Cover and reduce heat to low.  Simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender.
