While most professional skateboarders call the West Coast their home, Richmond’s own Gilbert Crockett lays his head on the east. Nestled right in the Fan, Gilbert visits Ellwood’s almost daily and picks up his Envirocredit for skateboarding there along the way out. Click here for an interview with Gilbert on ESPN.
Yesterday evening was a special sneak peek of our “Pairing of the Brews” – which included a 3 course meal paired with 3 different Bell’s beers. We had a really great group of people meet over at the cafe, where they were greeted by Derek, the Bell’s Brewery rep for Richmond and Josh the head chef of Ellwood’s kitchen. After co-mingling, we all sat down to what might have been the best meal of my life.
Come by the store this Saturday from 10am – 4pm and bring your sweet tooth! We’ll be selling our homemade Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Walnut and Vegan Lemon cookies. All cookie sales will be donated to pediatric research, so make sure to come out and support this great cause. What better way to finish off that healthy salad than with a nice big cookie!?
As summer comes to a halt, so comes the time to put the kiddies back on the bus. But it’s hard to keep track of what they are eating while they are not at home. Gain some reassurance that they are getting the nutrition that they need! From August 23-29 we will be having a “Back to School” week highlighting some really great products that will satisfy both you and your child!
We will be posting some really great recipes, highlighting some staff picks and demoing some really great products such as Fruit 66! So be sure to check back in with us!
PS: We haven’t forgotten about you, college students! We will be highlighting some products that are right up your alley as well.
If you’re ever near our store and in need of some air for your bike, scooter or baby carriage, we’ve got you covered. We just installed a new, all access bike pump out front of our store. So pull your bike up and fill ‘er up! The tip of the hose has a screw-off head that flips for Presta valves and Schrader valves. Also, please note that the pumps gauge goes all the way up to 220psi so when you’re pumping those tires up, go by feel rather than how high that gauge is going. We don’t want you to blow a tube!
If there’s one thing that we’re truly passionate about, it’s food. If there’s another, it’s our community and how important the element of sustainability is to its current and future members.
Working to make Richmond one of the most eco-friendly cities in the world might be far-fetched, but it’s a goal we’re aiming to achieve. This city is lucky to have a great bus system, local bike and scooter shops, and hundreds of miles of sidewalks. We would like to reward those who choose these available methods.
In an effort to continually help and encourage alternative means of transportation in this city, we reward those individuals that arrive to our store using environmentally friendly methods. We call it our Envirocredit, and it’s pretty simple:
If you get to our store by walking, riding a bike, taking the bus, skateboarding, rollerblading, skipping, running, or even walking on your hands, we’ll take 25-cents off your purchase. It’s as simple as that.
When you check out, just mention to your cashier how you got to our store. If it fits the Envirocredit description, we’ll take 25-cents off your entire bill.
