Shh…We bet you missed this unique cafe opening

Very quietly, a new cafe in Westgate opened last week that’s going above and beyond just drip and pastries.

Third Way Cafe at 3058 W. Broad St. is aiming to be a hub for community members to congregate and enjoy experiences together. Game nights, poetry nights, live music, food trucks, open forums, and more are all on Third Way’s agenda as they move forward in their operation.

One really cool thing about this new cafe is if you’re paying them a visit and you see something you like—be it a cupcake, book, record, piece of art, or even a chair—you can buy it. The place will be jammed pack with items from local makers and shops ready to be purchased.

Third Way Cafe is in phase one right now through the next couple months. After that, they’ll take a two-week hiatus to update their coffee bar so that they can serve espresso drinks, reports The Metropreneur.

At this point, the Tiger King references are all but inescapable. And it's for good reason; the show somehow gets more and more detached from reality as it goes on.

That being said, no one expected this video when Brio took to Facebook to announce its still doing carry-out orders at its Easton location.

"Hey! Do y’all have the hunger of a large jungle cat?" the post said. "Y’all tired of being caged up all day? Can’t find meat in the grocery store? Well, git yerself down to the Brio! Hurry, and try not to git bit!"

But this isn't the first time they've used a unique approach to announcements.

Katalina’s owner leading charge for independent restaurant owners

Known for her famous Pancake Balls (ridiculously delish, BTW), Katalina Day, the namesake behind Katalina's, is urging Gov. DeWine to consider emergency financial lifelines for her industry.

Restaurants were among the first and most devastated industries impacted by the coronavirus. Many notable local brands, such as Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, have closed most operations. According to Day, the industry needs immediate government intervention to survive.

Day started a Change.org petition which articulates the unique and specific challenges faced by the industry and the people who rely on it for their livelihood.

Addressing Gov. Dewine for relief, the petition is closing in on 1,000 signatures

"We have followed orders to close our doors to protect our communities, knowing what it would mean for our businesses, and we are grateful as citizens that you were one of the first to foresee that necessity. We did so without protest, and those of us who remain open are providing a valuable service through delivery, despite it being increasingly less profitable (as delivery services infringe on any profit)." said Day in the petition.

The petition closes with: "Bottom line: From our employees to our vendors and landlords to the burden on the healthcare industry and government, there is not a part of society that will not be touched by this crisis. "

Given these unprecedented challenges, please immediately consider:

  • Emergency grants for immediate business needs such as payroll and crucial operating expenses including food orders and utilities. 
  • Commercial and residential rent abatement and a moratorium on evictions both for owners and employees. 
  • Immediate cash relief for current and laid-off employees.
  • Abatement of payroll and sales tax.
  • Temporary commercial and government loan payment relief.
