Union Kitchen Grocery

Union Kitchen Grocery has opened its doors at 538 3rd St. NE.  Nestled in Capitol Hill and just steps away from the popular H st. corridor, UK Grocery is the go-to spot for all things made in DC.  The store features products from more than 50 Union Kitchen Members and Alumni including Popcorn Queens’ Junior Bags.  You can also find everyday essentials and delicious breakfast and lunch options at the Grocery which is open daily from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.

On July 21st, Popcorn Queens hosted a demo at the store.  It was an opportunity for patrons to taste a few of the flavors available for purchase.  Scroll to check out a few photos from the demo.  Also, check out the article from Heard on the Hill HERE. They give a thorough review of the sandwiches available at the store.  We hope you’ll swing by to support UKG as well as our product.  When you grab some popcorn, try the Italian Cold Cut Sandwich and thank us later. 🙂

The Beach @ The Building Museum

Last year it was a maze this year it’s a beach.
Washington, DC’s Building Museum has pulled out all the stops for their summertime tourist attractions in the past and this year is no different. “The Beach” is a public art installation in the museum’s main floor that includes a carpeted deck and the best part: a wading pool made of 1 million clear, recyclable balls.
The idea of “swimming” in balls (a la Chuckie Cheese) may have already sold you but there’s more. Union Kitchen, our shared incubator where our popcorn is produced, was tapped to run the snack bar. So not only do you get to act like a beach goer, you get to eat like one too!  Our popcorn is one of the many local, tasty treats on the menu so when you check out this fab exhibit, we hope you’ll support us.
The pictures you see here are courtesy of Washingtonian.com and you can check out their write up on “The Beach” HERE. We’ve also copied the dates and times for the exhibit below. Enjoy!
 
The exhibit opens July 4 and runs through September 7; open 10 AM to 7 PM Monday to Saturday, and 11 AM to 5 PM Sunday. Admission $5-16.

DC Ladies’ “Pupcorn Bar”

When the DC Ladies asked if we’d be willing to provide popcorn for their “PAWTY” to celebrate their latest doggie adoption, we said “Sure!” My Mom and I are big time dog lovers so we couldn’t resist their idea of a “Pupcorn Bar.” It all sounded adorable and last week, when the pictures started rolling in, we were amazed at just how adorable it all was. These ladies went above and beyond for this fantastic event!
Besides “pup corn” the Ladies created a mini (hot) dog bar and doggie (rice Krispy) treats. Then there was the decor. The colorful, tasteful touches, we are sure, were enjoyed by both doggies and ladies alike.
We invite you to get inspired by the amazing images of the event brought to us by Lissa Ryan Photography. And do venture over to the DC Ladies’ web post where you’ll find even more “pawty” pics as well as useful tips and info about pet adoption.
