Wednesday evening Common Grounds Coffee House celebrated Earth Day in a big way to a standing room only crowd. Beginning at 6:00 pm, coffee was on sale with 10% off and deserts were on sale @ 25% off.
Common Grounds, new to the city business roles is the only fair trade organic coffee house I am aware of locally, and let me assure you the java there is simply great. Along with coffee they serve up a variety of teas and all sorts of soft drinks made in house. Quite a variety of deserts are available for the sweet tooth and the carb fix
I arrived a little after six last night and had a short wait for my coffee and because all the chairs and tables were taken, one kind lady allowed me to use a corner of her table for my camera bag and was gracious enough to let me sit and chat for a few minutes before I left. I had an errand to run at another business and when I returned close to an hour later I could see there was still a crowd and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves tremendously.
Entertainment was also on hand provided by
"Joyland Express", a string band playing some great bluegrass music. They certainly were a pleasure to listen to.
Common Ground will be on hand at the Salisbury Festival Block Party this Friday night and their booth will be near the Ramada Inn and again on Saturday on Main Street near the Chamber of Commerce building. Be sure to stop while at the festival and enjoy a great cup of coffee.
Common Ground is located @ 701-D Mill Pond Village Rd. Behind the Center of Salisbury in the Mill Pond Village Shopping Center. Their Grand opening will coming up soon and I'll keep you posted on that date. All the staff are pleasant and extremely helpful. Stop in in soon. I promise you won't go away dissatisfied!
