Tried & True Coffee Co. has begun a new monthly event at their Southern Corvallis location called First Saturdays. It is a night of showcasing local makers, bakers, wineries, breweries, distilleries, musicians, and pop-up shops. As the name implies, these events will take place on the first Saturday of each month from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Owner Ann Schneider says it is a great opportunity for people to connect to local businesses who are creating amazing products. She went on to explain that, “It is an evening for people to be introduced to local creative talents in so many forms. There are no strict expectations. I just want everyone to have fun.”
The inaugural First Saturday was held in April. Participants included Broadley Vineyards Winery and Sassy Cupcake. Next month includes Jewelry from Plant Posse, and signature cocktails from Vivacity Spirits. In June, Schneider hopes to have a brewery do a tap takeover. Once the weather allows, they will open up the large garage doors for an open-air feel and will host live music outdoors on the back patio.
