Happy October, everyone! So far, this month has been a strange mix of wearing sweaters in 85 degree weather, staying up late coughing with fall colds, staying up even later trying to finish writing clinical reports, and planning MY UPCOMING TRIP TO ICELAND! (more on this later). Husband and I have been running into each other at odd hours these days as we both try to balance a mixture of midterms, oven repairs, orthodontic appointments, long commutes, and lots of tears.
BUT! We’ve made it to October, which is 1/2 way through my semester, which means I’m 1/4 way through 2nd year, so see? Progress!
AND! It’s the perfect time for this weekend’s upcoming Caffeine Crawl. (I could sure go for some caffeine right about now!) This is my first year learning about the Crawl, so I was excited to be approached about sharing it with all of you! Since I don’t know much about it, I’m going to let their provided press release share the details. Hope to see some of you there!
Caffeine Crawl is Indiana’s biggest annual coffee celebration, with 3 years of excellent fall Crawls on the books. October 14 15 will bring the buzz back with 12 local coffee, tea, chocolate and bakery companies participating. Friday evening will kickoff with 2 routes including a 2.5 mile biking / jogging friendly route, and Saturday features 3 routes covering the morning and afternoon. Sponsors and participants include Brew the Way, Bites Coffee and Dessert Bar, Wholesome!, Bee Coffee Roasters, Foundry Provisions, General American Doughnut, Hubbard & Cravens Coffee & Tea, Liberation Roasting Company, Mile Square Coffee Roastery, Rabble Coffee, Thirsty Scholar, Tinker Coffee, Uel Zing, InterAmerican Coffee, Barista Magazine, and Earnest Eats.
Crawlers will follow a Caffeine Crawl tour guide on a preassigned route, and each business will showcase its unique skills and style with a short, educational presentation and a delicious sample at each stop. Overall routes are shorter in distance this year, and Crawlers will provide their own driving transportation between route stops multiple time and featured participant options are available. The festivities lead up to a Saturday evening After Crawl Party hosted by Brew The Way and Bites Coffee and Dessert Bar, and Crawlers will receive a ‘swag bag’ with take home treats from participating shops and sponsors. Highlighting a diverse variety of local businesses, we’re thrilled to welcome you back to Indianapolis for a caffeinated weekend to remember!
