Happy Friday, Manchester!

Yesterday Sara and I got to tour Penuche’s Music Hall at 1087 Elm Street,

and we were impressed! Their outdoor seating is brand new and custom- a beautiful and bright orange that really pops on the sidewalk!   They added balcony seating and spruced up the chandeliers. The bathrooms were completely redone to look modern and luxurious.

But the best part of all: They now serve mudslides! The perfect cold treat on a warm summer day. Penuche’s is planning to have live music as often as possible, so keep an eye out for fun shows this summer!

Happy #foodiefriday!

This past week I had a birthday and I got to celebrate by grabbing a free scoop of ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s! I’m not much into sweets, but ice cream is my one true weakness, especially if it’s chocolate! Of course, I had to get Chocolate Therapy so I could fully indulge myself in birthday bliss.

Wanna get a free scoop of ice cream for your birthday too? Sign up for Ben & Jerry’s newsletter here!

What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?

Happy Friday! Although the weather had a fun April Fool’s Day prank to play on us, I think it’s safe to say the Spring is finally here. The weather forecast still reads that next week we’ll be launched into some beautiful sunny days before the spring showers hit!

I think the best way to celebrate warm weather is with cool drinks, and it seems that A&E Coffee agrees. They’ve got some awesome specials for the month of April that’ll help you cool down and enjoy that weather!

The following is a guest post by A&E Coffee


A&E Coffee & Tea is launching two new Feature Drinks in April, the Very Berry Cream Soda and the Spring Break Latte. “These are a continuation of our craft approach to drinks in our cafes,” says Emeran Langmaid, owner. “We are constantly striving to come up with creative ways to make drinks using real, natural ingredients. Certainly as the craft cocktail has become popular, craft lattes and au laits are following suit.”

The Very Berry Cream Soda is a spin-off of the widely popular Espresso Cream Soda made at A&E Coffee & Tea. It uses only 5 ingredients: organic very berry tea, cream, seltzer, house made vanilla simple syrup and garnished with fruit.

 

 

 

The Spring Break Latte is concocted with orange zest infused almond coconut milk, espresso and house made vanilla simple syrup. It can be served hot or iced.

 

 

 

What’s your favorite springtime drink?
