New Coffee Shop Opening in Kenton

October 21, 2008

A new family-friendly coffee shop will be opening in January 2009 in downtown Kenton on North Denver Avenue!  Posies Cafe will offer a vibrant community gathering space for individuals and families alike, offering a playroom for little ones, and ample space for everyone to spread out and relax with a nice warm cup of coffee (or our specialty hot chocolate - think chocolate with Allspice!)

We will begin the build-out of the shop in late November/early December, and are scheduled to open January 20, 2009.  Owned by Kenton resident (and fellow urbanMama), Jessie Burke, Posies hopes to provide a much needed space in Kenton for families to spend the long winter months. 

Keep your eyes peeled for the changes that take place on Denver, from Posies in January, the the new library going in two doors down in June! 

We look forward to meeting you all very soon!

*Many other Mamas have expressed interest in investing in the coffee shop. If you or someone you know is interested, please contact Jessie Burke at jessiebburke@gmail.com, or 971.404.9673.  Serious inquiries only, please (minimum investment amount is $10k).

Tandem Coffeehouse

June 09, 2008

Hi there,
I am the new owner of a small, mama owned, coffee shop in SE Portland, Tandem Coffeehouse. As a long time reader of urbanmamas, I thought it would be a fantastic place to let people know about our shop. We are very family friendly with a kids play area, family friendly local art and a growing menu of house made treats as well as sandwiches and soup. We serve Stumptown coffee and Dragonfly chai and try to use local products and vendors whenever possible. We will be having a story time once or twice week, and our play area is a great place for mama/ baby groups to meet. We are open from 7am-4pm weekdays and 8am-4pm weekends. We are also available for after hours groups or occasions.  Check out our Myspace page to learn more about the shop and the mamas who run it.

Oregon College Savings Plan Month

March 23, 2008

Apparently, Oregon has designated the month of March as college savings month. And anyone who opens a new account directly with the Oregon College Savings Plan in March is automatically entered to win a $4,000 scholarship!

Entering is easy:
1.  Anyone who opens a new account directly with the Oregon College Savings Plan account in March is automatically entered; or

2.  Send a letter to the State Treasurer's office requesting entry into the contest.

For contest rules and to enroll online, please visit http://www.oregoncollegesavings.com

As Oregon Treasurer Randall Edwards put it, "The 529 is easy to open. It makes college more affordable.  It's tax deductible.  And the earnings come back tax-free.  What's not to like?"


The Oregon College Saving Month scholarship contest will award $4,000 to four Oregon families, chosen randomly in each of the four weeks in March.
