Makers Brunch: Grandola Granola

Each month we partner with a local maker for a pop up during brunch. Our October house guest is Granola Granola. In 2012, Jaime began making granola for her daughter, Ella, as a clustered and quick healthful snack. From goodie bags at her 2nd birthday to making batches for friends and family, Grandola Granola was created in 2014. Using organic ingredients along with locally sourced maple syrup and extracts is what gives it such unique flavor and quality. Grandola is the only gourmet, clustertastic granola on the market that's made by hand, cured, nut free, vegan and available in gluten free.

June Boozy Hour with Women of Cincy and Fuel The Sole

We’re doing some “sole” searching this month for a Boozy Hour that will knock your socks off! Women of Cincy is partnering with Fuel The Sole to host June’s Boozy Hour at the Commonwealth Bistro from 6 to 9 p.m. There’s also an option to sweat your stuff from 6 to 7 with Fuel The Sole.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to sweat it with us, but if that’s not your thing, don’t fret, Boozy Hour is open to the “soles” who would much rather wear sandals, flip flops, slippers, flats, or heels than running shoes. This Boozy Hour at the Commonwealth Bistro will be a night of fine wine, mouth-watering meals, and conversation to feed your “sole.” 

For those of you who would like to sweat your stuff, we’ll be meeting at the Commonwealth Bistro at 6 p.m. for a 3 mile run around the cozy, tree-lined streets of Covington for a view of the Cincinnati skyline. If you’re interested in the workout, a maximum of 24 people will be lucky enough to sweat with us, so sign up at www.fuelthesole.com. (Sign up coming soon!)

Sign up for our fine wine and dine Boozy Hour on Eventbrite now! 

Don’t forget to stay tuned for the Story Behind the Booze featuring Tess Burns, on June 19.
