Is it August already? Seems like last week we were in the middle of the Summer Flavor Battle and making graduation cakes. We're happy to see August on the calendar so we can celebrate women-owned businesses (like ours), back to school, the Fall Flavor Battle and more. Read on!
Happy Birthday Colorado!
Our beautiful state turns 146 on August 1. We're closed on Mondays, but we'll celebrate all week with some much-loved Colorado-themed cookies in the bakery.
Highlighting Women-Owned Businesses
We are partnering with our neighborhood to highlight women-owned businesses just like us! Did you know that the Highlands was home to some of the first women in Denver to own real estate, and many of our members are women-fronted businesses? We want to help celebrate that this month! Join us on August 6 for “Shop Woman-Owned Saturday” on Saturday, August 6!
Don’t Miss in August:
Saturday, 8/6 is International Beer Day – stop by for some super cute beer cookies!
Wednesday 8/10 Is World Lion Day, and Friday 8/12 is World Elephant Day. We'll be celebrating with some cool lion and elephant-themed treats.
Friday, 8/26, is Women's Equality Day. We celebrate our woman-owned business every day, but on this day, we’ll have some fun woman-themed cookie designs.
Fall Flavor Battle
It seems like we just got comfy with our fantastic summer flavors, and now it's time to pick out some tasty fall flavors. Look for the battle to run from Tuesday, August 16 to Sunday, August 28. Mark your calendars, and be prepared to sample and vote for the ones that tickle your taste buds!
If you don't know how it works, we'll have samples of two new or reappearing flavors for you to sample each day. Then you have to VOTE – in person or on our social media feeds – for your favorite. We'll do it for two weeks, so if you miss a day, you'll still have a chance the following week. Then we tally the votes and announce our new fall flavors on September 1.
Back to School!
School will start up on August 22 for most Denver Public Schools. Weren't we just celebrating graduations and the start of summer? And it's back-to-school time already? While the kiddos might not be that excited to celebrate, we know a few parents that are in the celebrating mood. Look for some back-to-school treats in the bakery starting around August 16.
And, if you're kicking off the school year with a little party, treats for your beloved teachers or just need a reason to eat cake, let us know, and we'll make something awesome for you!
We’ll be at the Breckenridge Wine Classic September 16-17. We’re looking forward to a little crisp mountain air and some fun with some great restaurants and wineries. See you there!
September is also Sammy's Superheroes Month in the bakery! You can pick up a sprinkle cupcake throughout September, and we'll be donating for every Sammy's Sprinkle Cupcake sold. Learn more about Sammy's Superheroes here.
As of August 1, there are:
115 days until Thanksgiving – plenty of time to get your pie orders in!
121 days to Holiday Flavors in the bakery
146 days to Christmas. You still have time to get on the ‘nice’ list if you’ve been naughty!
