I’ve been posting like crazy trying to catch up as much as possible before the Year is up. If I weren’t so tired right now, I would pull a marathon, blog all-nighter. It sounded like a fund idea, but when I’m already worn out at 11:15, it probably isn’t the wisest thing to pursue. I probably wouldn’t be so tired if I hadn’t gotten up to take people to airport at 6am only to find out I wasn’t needed. It gave me a real case of the Mondays from which I only recovered at about 6pm when I discovered a new produce shop near work called Veg Head.
Located on the corner of Lincoln and Belle Plaine (where the UPS store used to be), Veg Head is barely open. No sign outside yet, except a little “now open.” I went in out of curiosity and found they were still setting up. The owner talked me through the idea–healthy, clean produce that you might not get at your typical grocery store combined with fresh salads, hummus, guacamole, and breads. She told me about the unique fruits they carry (lemon drop, a cross between a honey dew and a lemon) and the products they plan to make in house. I told her about the theater located just a few blocks down Lincoln. She gave me discount cards to share with my coworkers. It was small business, neighborhood love at its finest.
I bought some homemade guac, chips and some pre-cut lemon drop. All will be treats for tomorrow’s fun thing. Be sure to check them out if you are in the area!
