Onward and Upward!

Hello friends!

Everyday the Green Bean becomes more and more alive!
A few updates....
  • We are no longer in the Sip & Ship. You will just have to wait a little while longer for another Cowboy Cookie or delicious latte! We are focusing on the new space and it is coming together beautifully! The Sip & Ship is still doing coffee, so go on over, extend a hand of thanks and grab a Father's Day card!
  • The floors have been trenched, plumbing is in and cement will be poured on Friday and then the coffee bar will be built. You can see those great holes in the ground next to our resident sweep-and-keep-the-construction-site-clean man Keith!

  • The counter's are being built with a wonderful new bar to sit at!

  • We have some colorful and comfortable new chairs for the outside that got tested out in our warm sun!

  • If you were in the neighborhood in the last three days you would have seen large groups of high schoolers making the exterior look quite a bit different. We could not thank the wonderful choir group of Hyde Park Baptist Church enough! A few of the things they accomplished while they were here:

Rip out all the weeds and build a barrier out of old McDonald's trash cans with their super strong muscles!

And.... PAINT THE BUILDING!!!! The last two days we said "HELLO, Greenwood! We have arrived!" It will soon be muraled, so keep your eyes peeled!
