What are you doing Saturday, August 6? If you didn't say "going to the Co+op Block Party," then you probably just don't know how great it's going to be! But don't worry, I'm here to give you the run-down.
Save 15% on everything.
Yes, we mean everything. You'll get 15% off regular items, 15% off sale items, 15% off wellness products and bulk and grab n' go, even 15% off any green chile case orders you place that day! And the best part is, you don't even need to be an Owner — this 15% off is for everyone!
So stock up your pantry, buy that cookbook or fancy fish oil you've been eyeballing, or just come in for an extra-affordable kombucha and a snack.
Get on the green chile hype train!
That's right, it's green chile season! We'll be roasting green chile during the block party, so you can buy a case (at 15% off! Did I say that yet?) and have it roasted right there while you wait. Roasting time slots are limited, so if this is your plan, do your best to show up early and nab one of the early slots! We'll be roasting from 10am to 4pm.
Eat some tacos. Have a cold beer.
While we'll be shutting down the café during the block party, there will be no shortage of good food, because we'll be grilling up some fresh, delicious tacos in the parking lot! We'll even have vegan options available, so everybody can get in on that taco goodness.
We're also thrilled to announce that High Desert Brewing Co. will be on the premises, serving ice cold handcrafted ales and lagers to help you keep cool!
We've invited our vendors to come sample their products in the store, so you can see what that salsa you've never bought tastes like! The kitchen will also be doing some sampling, so if you're like me and always just buy the Chicken Pesto Panini (come on, it's perfect), you might have the opportunity to find a new favorite! We'll also have tons of free sample-sized offerings from vendors who couldn't make it.
It wouldn't be a block party without live music!
We're excited to have local band Los Cacahuates playing some old-fashioned hoedowns and polkas to lend a soundtrack to your block party experience! If you want to catch some of their tunes, they will be playing around lunchtime.
We've also invited the other businesses in the shopping center to join us in offering some great deals and fun activities. You can be sure that the Co+op Block Party is going to be a fun time for all!
