If you’re looking for a reprieve from at home cooking, look no further. Big Ash Brewing is open seven days a week and provides delivery and curbside takeaway. If you’re feeling creative, make your own pizza, or try one of their specialties like the Vampire Slayer and Fiesta. Don’t forget to watch it down with a 64 oz. growler of your beverage of choice!

The Breathing Room

The Breathing Room is a Pilates, core align and yoga studio. While the physical studio is temporarily closed, you can continue your practice with the studio’s online workshops and YouTube videos.

Lane & Kate

Treat yourself or a loved one to some fashion jewelry from Lane & Kate. The store has something for everyone, ranging from dainty to decorative.

Play Library

The Play Library is like a library, but for toys rather than books. “Playtime” memberships can come to the store for unlimited family play dates and “Play & Borrow” memberships let you take toys home. All paid memberships help deserving families who are unable to afford one. While the library is currently closed, you can still support the store by purchasing a gift card or membership, as well as a Play Library coloring book or baseball T-shirt.
