The Juice Laundry at the Historic Coca-Cola Building

The grand opening of our Organic Juice Bar & Raw Food Kitchen at the Historic Coca-Cola Building on Preston Avenue is right around the corner, and we couldn't be more excited! We've been working hard over the past few months to create a uniquely delicious and nutritious menu to surround our expanded lineup of cold-pressed juices and nut milks. Salads, wraps, soups, smoothies, snacks... we can't wait to share with you everything that we've been working on.

The newly renovated Coca-Cola Building is going to be an incredible place to grab a bite to eat and hang out. From the founders of Beer Run, the new Kardinal Beer Hall and Garden will have a huge outdoor patio space and presumably an extensive craft beer list to rival that of its sister location. Timbercreek Market will offer fine meats and cheeses sourced directly from their organic farm. Finally, Blue Ridge Blue Cyclery is moving into a huge new showroom, so really there will be something for everyone.

We'll update the website and our social media pages with more information about upcoming events, contests, and giveaways that you won't want to miss, so stay tuned!

The Juice Laundry at Tom Tom Founders Festival

Enjoy free juice samples this Saturday, April 12, at the Charlottesville Farmer's Market!

Spring is finally here, baseball is back (UVA is currently #2 in the nation), and the juice is flowing faster than ever. Also, the awesome Tom Tom Founders Festival (TTFF) starts today and will continue throughout the entire weekend. 

For those who don't know what it is, TTFF takes place on Founders weekend (April 9-13) with back-to-back talks, workshops, panels, installations, concerts and block parties. The converging disciplines of food, music, art, design, business, science and technology connect people and new ideas to the future. If you've never checked out any TTFF events before, we definitely recommend checking out some of the events this year!

We'll have a sampling booth at the Tom Yum Artisan Food Vendors event. Come early to get your free juice samples and ask our founder anything you've ever wanted to know about juicing and juice cleanses. Then head over to our stand at the City Market where we'll have a full selection of juices and NOMUs (our delicious line of nut- and seed-based "milks") available for purchase. We recently added a new selection of 8 oz. bottles of juice... they went fast last weekend!  

We look forward to seeing you this weekend... let our raw, organic cold-pressed juice kick-start your spring!

April is for Adjusting Associations

We recently had a happy juicer tell us that after a 3-day cleanse followed up with regular daily juices, she has finally broken her habit of drinking a Coke every single day. In the past, any attempt to quit left her with severe headaches and she always went back.

Now she craves her favorite pure, organic, nutritionally dense juice instead and is loving how she feels.

Call them habits, rituals, addictions, etc... We all have them when it comes to food/drink, but we also have the ability to make smarter, healthier choices that will leave us feeling better and more energized. We challenge you to "adjust an association" this month by cutting back, cutting out, or replacing a less-than-ideal dietary choice that you make on a regular basis.

We've been conditioned to associate processed junk food with pleasure and indulgence, which is just silly considering the healthy, natural, and delicious options that exist these days. Come check us out at the opening day of the City Market this Saturday to sample some association-adjusters and find out what we mean.
