A Year In Review 2018

It is official, we are just over a year old and still perking! During 2018, we had fun, saw a community come together for new events and charitable causes and watched small businesses flourish. Downtown Aberdeen ushered in its second concert season of the Sunday Exchange, withstood torrential rains during the Spring Spree, barked excitedly at the Dog Fair, honored its local heroes during the Hanging with Heroes event, searched for gold during the St. Patty’s Gold Rush, hopped around town after a bunny hiding eggs, held an old fashioned 4th of July street party with a fantastic view of the local fireworks, dressed up in our Hogwart’s finest during the 2nd Annual Fall for Aberdeen event, gussied up and got fancy for Uncorked! A Wine Crawl, tasted yummy soup recipes during the 7th Annual Bread Bowl Walking Tour and most importantly, joined together to raise funds during the Musicians for Moore Hurricane Relief Benefit concert just before reindeer descended in town for the Annual Reindeer Run and Santa came to town! OK, maybe we are little proud to be part of this community. We have gained new friends, new customers and customers who have become friends, many of whom joined us for our anniversary party, a little evening soiree, with some of our favorite small plate selections from local eateries. Our business neighbors have been fabulous, and we even had the pleasure of welcoming new ones to our block. Now let’s break it down, Downtown Aberdeen has an eclectic flair with live music every weekend at The Rooster’s Wife, artists at easels, in the streets or at The Artist League of the Sandhills, photography, furniture, flowers, food, craft beer, DIY fun at The Bullroom and of course COFFEE…. can’t you tell we are bursting with pride? So what’s next? We, the High Octane girls, have some surprises grinding and latte fun in the works! Follow us on FB and Instagram @highoctanegirls for upcoming announcements, events and additions to the shop.  We thank all of our patrons, friends and family for an amazing 2018 and look forward to an even brighter 2019!
