A week ago I stopped by The Hem Nutrition (aka THN) to grab a beverage. Open since September, I learned about THN from the directory of black-owned businesses on the local NAACP chapter's calendar. At 3pm, the city crews were closing off Obama Way (aka Broadway) for the street party that starts each Saturday at 5pm. Restaurants on these blocks were setting out tables and chairs on the asphalt for outdoor dining.
The specialty here is a menu of protein-rich and nutrition-rich smoothies. But this time I didn't need something so filling and opted for a refreshing iced fruit tea with a cranberry-flavored aloe shot. I liked that they use the contoured lids for strawless sipping. The inspirational words scrawled on my cup . . . "Purpose & Passion! name a better duo" . . . were a bonus. I'd missed out on the Saturday donuts, apparently they sell out early in the day. But that and the smoothies are more reason to return.
