Join our guided book club as we get to know fellow readers and discuss the book of the month. In October we will be discussing “If I Did It: Confessions of a Killer”, a book ghostwritten by Pablo Fenjves, in which Simpson puts forth a hypothetical description of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Does the glove fit? We will discuss the infamous murder, trial, and police chase that led to the book about the celebrity. Slow-moving white suburbans may even be rolling by on the local tv during the discussion (thanks YouTube!).

Beer Release: You're My Beau Blue

We are renaming our Blueberry Belgian Waffle Tripel after a beloved hound who roamed the South Main Village streets of the past. Beau Blue was an icon of our neighborhood and a friend to the cops, business owners, and homeless population. When he passed in 2013, the whole neighborhood bonded together to celebrate, and we are continuing by naming our beer after him!

PARK(ing) Day

PARK(ing) Day is a global one-day effort to temporarily reclaim a handful of on-street parking spaces and repurpose them as parklets or “people spaces” to demonstrate the incredible value of these small urban parcels we currently dedicate solely to holding cars. Funky Picnic will be participating with other businesses along South Main Street. Come see us all day at our “Funky Picnic” themed parking spot!
