Happy G-20 week! Come try some of our fabulous local products and introduce yourself to a taste of the Steel City. Our organic grass-fed frank, soda from the Natrona Bottling Company, and pierogies are a great place to start. Franktuary is downtown, only blocks from the convention center. 325 Oliver Avenue, between Wood and Smithfield Streets. We’re open from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. 10:00 am to 3:00 pm tomorrow. Visitors most definitely welcome!
Sometime last week, I was closing out the cash register at Franktuary when the phone rang. I’m never sure whether to answer after hours, given the amount of hang-ups and sales calls we field while we are open, but this particular day I answered the phone. A gentleman on the end of the line asks me if we sell Natrona Bottling Company sodas. I am proud to tell him that we do. He asks me what flavors we have. I list them off. He asks me where we are located. I tell him. He’s in the Strip District and wants to know how long it will take him to get to the shoppe. Well, I’m not sure where he is, but I figure this is a good time to mention that we have now been closed for about half an hour. Sad silence. He is sad. I am sad. Geez, the guy...
Natrona Bottling Company delivered our first order of soda today. Bottled just last week, literally! Come try a Mint Julep today. In other news, Franktuary is now featured in a webcom. It’s called Something To Be Desired. What webcom means is that you don’t need a TV to watch TV anymore! Give it a shot. Lately I have been developing “intricate” graphs on scrap paper. They’re very enlightening when it comes to such things as life and/or the food-service industry. I think sometime soon I might scan what I have developed, thanks to Pixma, and share on this blog.
A new line of soda products is coming to Franktuary! Look forNatrona Bottling Company beverages to appear soon. The combination of a locally bottled product that uses quality ingredients has us pretty excited. Flavors will include Ginger Beer and Mint Julep!
