Good Saturday morning to you Cleveland. This is it, the last weekend for holiday shopping, wrapping, baking and all sorta of festivities! Are you ready? Myself, I’m pretty good. Most of my presents are purchased and wrapped, I’ve made all of my cookie doughs, our tree is up (& already shedding it’s needles) the paperwhites are blooming around home…let’s just say the holidays are here!
This week was a wild one for me. Besides the regular holiday crazy stuff, as a small business, Chartreuse (my real life passion job) celebrated ten years of creative design partnerships with other entrepreneurs and organizations throughout Northeast Ohio. We hosted a lovely party at the new-ish Transformer Station to celebrate with clients, vendors and friends of the studio. I’ve got to say if you ever need a place to host an event, this intimate museum was the perfect venue…and I can’t thank Gatherings Kitchen enough for the stunning and delicious treats, you guys are so talented. Oh, and did I mention it was also my birthday this week? Add to the merriment! So, that with all that I have a bit of blog catching up to do.
Are you having fun with the “12 Days of Giveaways?” I can’t thank all of the wonderful business owners enough for their generosity towards this social space. I always love to see what fun we can giveawy during the holiday’s. Just another reason to love living, working and thriving in Cleveland…all of the movers and shakers who support and collaborate with others. Cleveland YOU ROCK!
Anyhow, today I’ve got a real good one for you. Have you heard of the duo, beer loving, sweet tooth making, artisinal donut company called Brewnuts? This new business is the brainchild of Shelly Fasulko & John Pippin both west side entrepreneurs creating seasonal, beer-infused, locally made donuts right here in the CLE.
At anytime you can expect Brewnuts to have six brew flavors “on tap.” Currently they are offering two holiday flavors; Christmas Ale Gingersnap and a Chocolate Porter donut with a spike eggnog glaze. Where can you get your hands on these delicacies you may be asking? Shelly & John are currently partnering with a few local establishments such as the Tremont Taphouse where they sometimes offer a mini-brewnut flight. However, if you know of someone who is looking to offer their special donut creations to their customers give Shelly a shout to explore a sweet partnership!
For todays giveaway Brewwnuts would like to give a lucky reader a dozen of their fresh donuts; over a thirty dollar value of yummy holiday goodness. To win this dozen just tweet me “@iheartclev I’d love to win a dozen donuts from @Brewnuts!” The winner we will be drawn by Monday, December 23rd.
