1. Thrift & Sip at Buffalo Exchange Outlet & Panchitos

A famous writer once said, “I like my money right where I can see it, hanging in my closet” and we think that’s beautiful. IYKYK.

By now you’re well aware that shopping is our favorite cardio and we’ve got a chance to shine this week at Thrift & Sip at Buffalo Exchange Outlet and Panchitos! It’s an event for the avid thrifter, thrift for business, or even if you’re new to the experience. It’ll be a great way to network, make friends, and find those “statement pieces!”

After the shopping fun, everyone’s headed over to Panchitos! We’ll be able to devour some well deserved food and drinks.

Here’s the weekend Specials:

5. Make & Take: Croissants

Bread lovers unite because this one’s for you! Sourdough was the era that’ll continuously remind us of quarantine and covid, but nowadays we’re feeling optimistic. Really light, a bit fluffy, and crisp due to summer; so we’re moving on to croissants!

Our friends at Central Market will show you the ins and outs on the class French techniques such as rolling the dough.

You can expect these Delicious Menu Goodies:

  • Croissant au Beurre, which translates to Class Butter Croissant
  • Yummy fillings to pick from:
    • Chocolate (hazelnut, is chef’s kiss!)
    • Ham & Cheese
    • Almond

The possibilities are endless, think about both sweet and savory options. Your croissants will be perfect for brunch or outing picnics with the fam! Plus, you’ll get to take your delicious baked goodies home with you. Great treat, see you there!

Please keep in mind: Make sure to turn in the signed copy of the waiver for each attendant on the day of class, time is limited in the classroom so make sure to arrive at least 5 minutes before, and safety precautions will continue to take place in order to keep everyone safe. 

This class will be for ages 16 and up but children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
