Six Ways to Celebrate Spring & Fuel Longer Days

This week not only marks the start of Daylight Savings Time and the start of a new season but March 14-20 is also designated as Sleep Awareness Week, highlighting the importance of sleep in our daily lives.  For those who are struggling a bit with “springing forward” that extra hour, we’ve put together a highlight of some local shops, cafes and purveyors who offer variations on one of the most-loved beverages around the world – Coffee!

From Latte to Americano, Double-Double or Iced, make sure to check out how some of our local businesses have come up with some out of the box ways to get your caffeine buzz.
