We are proud to announce that the AC Cooler is available at our cafés (except for the Emery). It's a Jasmine Tea Lemonade (a seasonal favorite), enhanced by red berries syrup and topped with a splash of red berries tea. This limited-edition drink is the result of a collaboration with Antione & Stephon of Antz Creationz. They created a mural on the plywood outside our Uptown café on Hennepin during the protests that followed George Floyd’s killing. The idea for the drink came from many great conversations about their work and lives and we loved their creative and entrepreneurial spirit.
Antione created the amazing artwork for the cups and their creative team produced incredible videos like this one.
Proceeds will go towards these organizations:
- Juxtaposition Arts is a teen-staffed art and design center, gallery, retail shop, and artists’ studio space in North Minneapolis. Since the uprisings in Minneapolis began, JXTA has played a critical role in building community alternatives to the police, led by Black, POCI and other youth who are already building the abundant and just future they envision.
- West Broadway Business and Area Coalition / Northside Funders Group partnership will direct donations in supporting businesses on Minneapolis’s Northside that have been impacted by COVID-19 and the recent uprising.
