What a week it’s been! We’d like to thank everyone who made our Valentine’s Day Singles Mixer and Game Night such a success. We saw at least a few sparks flying across those tables. A very special thanks to Tiny Pies, Lick Ice Cream, id Soda, and ChocoSutra for their generous and delicious contributions. We’re thinking we might not be able to wait a whole year to do beer floats, games, or even a singles mixer again. Keep your eyes out for all of the above in the near future!

Wine and Cheese Tasting Tuesday, February 25th, 6:30pm
Last month Casa Brasil brewed some delicious pour-over coffee on our porch with a visiting farmer from Brazil. We were smitten with the results and thus decided to make that morning’s bean – Santa Ines – this month’s featured coffee. Get it at a special low price just this month at in.gredients.
Recipe of the Week
Raw Asian Slaw
We can’t get over how incredible last week’s Go Texan, Go Local Culinary Workshop was. Andi Jo of Traveling Recipes left all of us with so many wonderful cooking tips and recipes that we just can’t help but feature another one of her recipes this week.
This Asian slaw is the perfect fit for the season’s abundance of cabbage and kale. Enjoy it as a side salad, main salad, or turn it into an entree by adding brown rice and tofu like a stir-fry. Happy, healthy eating!
