GO BRUNCHING

Hey, maybe take advantage of those extended patios with a brunch excursion this week. Nothing starts the day better than an eggs benny and mimosa!

TAKE HOME A PLANT FROM HARVEY’S

This fast food join just began an adorable, environmentally friendly new initiative and it’s got us in the mood for a drive-thru. When you pick up a kid’s meal from Harvey’s, you’ll also get a plant kit to grow your own sunflower or nasturtium. Who cares about the food? We’d stop by just to get our hands on one of these plants! Good thing there’s no age limit on order a kid’s meal, right?

Have a great week, everyone!
