Jumping on the zoomies, with Matt Taylor, owner of two very popular local bars here in Lincoln Nebraska. He talks us through the ups and downs of the pandemic pivot inside the bar scene and together we are making a dreamy Pink Prosecco candle to mimic a brand new bubbly concoction debuting this summer at the ever exclusive hometown speakeasy The Other Room.
The first time I ever experienced the magic that is “The Other Room” the speakeasy behind the tavern, I was with some dear friends that dragged me through an abandoned parking lot, across an alley and into a little tiny dimly lit porch. That secret door opened and I was immediately IN LOVE. It was cozy and dark and secret and delicious. It’s still one of the first places I take out of towners. And Jon and I almost always start date night tucked into a corner of that special spot.
Equally adored by me is The Tavern. The louder, funnier younger brother to those fancy cocktails. I have so many beautiful memories from that bright happy courtyard filled with deep and dorky conversations of love, and loss and podcasts and dreams. We all usually linger there late into the night and I find myself longing for that space and the friends that fill it these days as all our buildings are plastered with signs of commitment and local love. Shutting our doors out of solidarity to keep the vulnerable safe and our city; whole. What we are doing is good. But what we are doing is also hard. That’s not lost on any of us one bit.
As always. The proceeds from this candle will go to raise money for the Lincoln Food Bank. Thank you for supporting this effort!
