Swings 25th Anniversary

FullSizeRender (7)This Saturday February 6th, marks our 25th anniversary.

We know some of you are saying “25 years?  I feel so old.”  Well how do you think we feel?  In just 25 short years, we’ve made thousand of friends and become a Wesleyan institution.

Join us on Saturday as we celebrate.  There is sure to be the usual free swag and other surprises.

 

We are still working out the details for a larger celebration later this semester.  And of course don’t forget the Super Bowl is the next day.

Once again we are excited to feature locally grown produce from Treat Farm in Orange, CT.

Just a 1/2 mile down the road from owner, Ed Thorndike ’89, we are able to get farm fresh tomatoes, Zephyr squash, sweet corn and other vegetables.

Look for these veggies on your sandwiches and in your specials at both WesWings and Red & Black Cafe.

 

 

 

As small local businesses ourselves, we know the importance of supporting farms like Treat Farmtre6
