MK Eagle wants you to get lit – at the library!

MK, the Programs Supervisor at the Louisville Free Public Library, sat down and talked to us about the library’s Get Lit® Lou (Get Literary Louisville!) program going on through the end of February.

The program is a throwback to the Summer Reading Programs of your grade school days – but for adults. Aimed at encouraging young adults to get back in touch with their inner bibliophile, and rediscover the library, Get Lit® Lou gives you digital badges and the chance to win great prizes for reading books and attending library programs.

Thank you for your donations to Gatlinburg Wildfire Relief!

Thanks to the generosity of our customers and baristas, we were able to reach our match goal of $500 and raised over $1350 with the help of your donations! The money you helped us raise will go to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, which we chose for a number of reasons.

The Community Foundation has created the Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge and Sevierville Emergency Response Fund that gives grants to victims and nonprofits who are providing on-the-ground immediate assistance AND long term services. The unfortunate reality of wildfires is that the effects are long lasting; people are displaced from their homes and some have to essentially start from scratch.  Being able to give the money as directly as possible to the residents and people affected was important.

You can find out more about The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s wildfire relief efforts and donate with them here: http://www.cfmt.org/

One of our barista’s, John Mike, was moved to go volunteer to help distribute donated goods to those affected. You can read about his experience and look at his photos taken in the area in his blog post below:

Meet the Maker: Copper & Kings

It would be hard not to notice the sleek, bright orange and black Copper & Kings sign that rises above their distillery when you’re driving down Story Avenue. Located in the middle of Butchertown’s growing community of local and small businesses, Copper & Kings is often also at the center of promoting that community and organizing neighborhood events.

Copper & Kings is primarily known for their brandy and absinthe, but equally as delicious is their non-alcoholic Butchertown Soda. You can find the Louisville-made craft sodas in the cold case at any of our stores.

While Butchertown Sodas have recognizable flavors, they are preservative-free, and use organic cane sugar and other high-quality ingredients that make them less syrupy, and more natural tasting than the average soft drink.
