This Week at Gnu's Room
Here's the latest from the Gnu's Room. They have some new stuff for the summer that sounds pretty good. I'm particularly excited about the tea tastings.
Here's the info: Friday, June 11th from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. - Chair Massage at the
Conar Rochford will be offering relaxing chair massages to erase the
stress of a long, hard, hot week! Only $10.00 for a luxurious 15 minute
session. Don't miss it!
We are initiating some "GNU" ideas for the summer, which will begin next week.
Try out our new Call-in Curbside Coffee (CCC)!
If you are in a hurry, but need some quality coffee to jump start your
day, you have a wonderful option effective with Monday, June 14th. To
participate in CCC is simple:
1. Come by the Gnu's Room and purchase a gift card for any desired
amount. We will keep your card on file and let you know when your
balance is running low.
2. Call in your coffee order 10 minutes prior to when you wish to pick it up.
3. Park in front of the Gnu's Room (you may need to pull in behind
other cars, but it will only be for a few seconds). We will deliver
your coffee to your vehicle!
Tea for Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m. each week
Beginning on the 15th, Chip Self, our local tea aficionado, will be
offering free tea tastings at the Gnu's Room with lots of great
education to accompany each sample. Chip was instrumental in the Gnu's
Room carrying the fine selection of organic loose leaf teas we have.
For those non-coffee drinkers out there, this is the perfect
opportunity to see what else is available for the discriminating
Gnu Biking Crew at 6:00 p.m. each Thursday
This is a beginning biking group for women only (sorry guys - but you
have lots of other options!). The meeting place will be Blooming
Colors and the pace will be as slow as needed, with easy terrain.
Route maps will be available. Any type of bike is acceptable and if
you don't have a bike, the city of Auburn has loaner bikes. You use
the bike for two weeks at no cost and get a helmet by just showing
your i.d. The total time for the ride will be about an hour and a half
allowing time for warm up and cool down. Since the ride will not be
over before it starts to get dark, you will need to have lights for
the front and back of your bike, a reflective vest, and a helmet. June
17th will be the first group ride. If you have any questions, please
contact Ginger Purvis at 524-4767.
