This new, refillable, stainless steel, Pura Vida mug is now available at Franny’s. Your initial purchase price of $6.95 includes a free coffee, and after that, you’ll get a reduced price each time you fill your mug. Not only is it a great looking mug, it’s a great idea!

Next Wednesday, September 22, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., local singer Nick Shattuck will perform at Franny’s. Please stop by, have a coffee, and enjoy some fantastic music.

Fun was had by everyone who stopped by Franny’s today. We’ve estimated that at least 350 people attended this great event! Franny’s food & beverage gave away 30 pots of Pura Vida coffee, 12 dozen cookies and bars, and gallons of lemonade. Andy from T.U.G.G. played for two hours outside in the sunshine. (Thanks a lot, Andy!)
