These two events are mutually exclusive but they both happen on November 10.

I love the idea of a Coffee Crawl visiting the city’s best coffee houses for roasting seminars and sampling. How very caffeinated!

The event happens from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Participating java joints include:

Cartel Coffee Lab
Sparkroot – I love their Blue Bottle coffee!
Yellow Brick Coffee
eXo Roast Co.
Caffe Luce
Adventure Coffee Roasting
Raging Sage

Check out the website for the schedule and details.


For an entirely different experience, Desert Tortoise Botanicals still has a few spaces available for the Herbal Winter Apothecary class.

In this class you will receive hands-on herbal remedy preparation, several freshly made herbal remedies to take home, how to properly combine and formulate herbs, knowledge of local plant uses, slideshow of plants to identify, and a whole lot more!

Cold and flu season is coming — be prepared.

The class runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m

Cost: $85/pp – includes all supplies.

Desert Tortoise Botanicals is located near Broadway/Swan
