The 2nd Annual Savor Fort Wayne Tour Begins

Boring. Dull. Inactive. Words you must extract from your vocabulary, especially when talking about Fort Wayne. Only boring people are bored. If any of you are fun and Theodore-esque then join me and participate in SavorFortWayne. There are more than 25 restaurants sharing their food at value prices for this event. How much of a value price you ask? $30! You get Savor Fort Wayne inspired three course meals for only up to $30! And this is just a guideline price; Beet Street Juicery is offering their food for $22 for 2 guests. While Don Hall’s Guest House Grill is offering a 2 for $30 special. Have I got you yet? If so, you are awesome. If not, you are stubborn and I like you. There will also be vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. I am pretty sure New Year’s just happened and a lot of you have resolutions. Maybe it’s being more cultured? Getting out more for food and fun? Changing you diet? No problem! Maybe you want to discover more of what our city has to offer? The new restaurants on this year’s Savor list include Beet Street Juicery, Black Canyon Restaurant, Casa Grille, Casa Grille Italiano, Casa Ristorante, Casa Ristorante Italiano, DeBrand Fine Chocolates, Henry’s Restaurant and Tuscanos Brazilian Grill. Yes, this is the 2nd Annual Savor Fort Wayne. We’ll forgive you for not coming last year. Alright this is my last pitch, I promise, but… diners (you) can also make it an evening out during Savor Fort Wayne by taking advantage of a special ticket offer for the Fort Wayne Komets game on Sunday, Jan. 18. Or, in addition to buying one ticket to the Pops: Wicked Divas, get one ticket free for the show on Saturday, Jan. 24 at the Embassy Theatre. Savor Fort Wayne will be here to grace your taste buds from January 14th through the 25th. For a list of participating restaurants, menus and special offers, visit SavorFortWayne.com. Updates will also be posted via Facebook on the Savor Fort Wayne page and on Twitter @SavorFortWayne. I hope to see you around, perusing the outstanding restaurants of our city. Plus you can always follow @LivingFortWayne and look us up on Instagram using Living Fort Wayne. I will be posting pretty pictures of food and not posting photos of me, stuffing my...

Living Fort Wayne’s 2015 New Years Resolutions

As 2014 draws to a close and 2015 looms around the corner, we here at Living Fort Wayne are vowing to change some things in our lives for the coming year. Make sure you keep us honest, these are resolutions we want to keep! Feel free to head over to our Facebook and/or Twitter pages or comment below to share your resolutions with us, we’d love to hear from you! Leslie Snare: I’m going totally cliché and hopping on the juice trend…I already bought my first juicer for at home purposes, but now I am going to vow to hit up the juiciest spots in town on mornings when I’m running late to get my daily dose of fruits and veggies: http://beetstreetjuicery.com/ http://www.jaijuice.com/ Sarah Pine: As a new year rolls around, it’s the New Year’s Resolution that you can expect from about 80% of the people you know. My New Year’s Resolution for 2015 is to jump back on the workout train! I’ve been on that train before but kind of fell off. This time around I’m taking my boyfriend along with me so I can have someone that will motivate me a little bit and actually make sure that I go. There is a Planet Fitness conveniently located by me on the Southwest side of town that I love, so come January I will start my membership back up with them for just $10 a month. Wish me luck! Cassey Hurtado: Tis the season for New Year’s resolutions, my own included. In 2015, I resolve to swap out some of my shopping habits for local buys instead. I’ve already found an awesome place to get my coffee. I’ll be trading in my Folgers coffee for Our Daily Brew’s tasty blends. And when eating out, I’ll skip the usual Chipotle or Panera and opt for a local place, like CS3 (Calhoun Street Soups, Salads and Spirits), the Dash-In or Bravas. Emily Farmer: I’ve never been so happy to see a new year! Now that I’ve finished my college degrees, I find that I have a little more time each day. In 2015, I plan to focus on family. Andy, the kids and I can take more trips to Fort Wayne’s amazing parks and playgrounds like Kreager, Northside, and Bass to name a few. I also want to spend more time with the kids at the Allen County Public Library and share my love of words with them. Here’s to a new year full of smiles and new memories to be made! Ryan Krueckeberg: I’m a pretty active person when it comes to work, community involvement, and my social life....

Beet Street Juicery: A KickStarter Success Story

Beet Street Juicery: A KickStarter Success Story

When I last checked in with Sherina Collier, we were all rooting for her and her KickStarter campaign for Beet Street Juicery. Everyone was spreading the news and hopeful about the possibilities. A couple of months later, it is safe to say that those possibilities are now becoming a reality. With a successful funding of her KickStarter campaign in August, the wheels are officially in motion. Sherina has signed a lease and is officially at work in her new downtown space at the West Berry Building. Located in the former home of Downtown Pizza, she has big plans for the space and has been spending her days gutting the current decor for a fresh environment for her business. Beet Street Juicery will be located at 534 W. Berry Street and has an official open date sometime during October. Their hours will be Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. – 7 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. If you are wondering what all of the buzz around Beet Street is about, it comes down to Sherina’s quest for bringing healthy, nutritional options to Fort Wayne in honor of her late father. After his death, she was determined to make a difference in the lives of others. She began researching how to offer the public affordable food and drink options without compromising a delicious taste. The results can be found in Beet Street Juicery. Her plans include using organic based fruits and vegetables, local vendors, and using the hydraulic cold-press method to extract more juice while keeping vital micronutrients and enzymes intact. This will only add one more great addition to a downtown scene that is starting to truly expand with options and reasons to enjoy the streets. If you want to find out more about Beet Street Juice, please connect with them on Facebook and help support their journey. Their grand opening will be here before we know...
