Day 301—The Wild Raspberry And The Great Pumpkin

Today, The Wild Raspberry, a sandwich shop with herbal teas and coffees, celebrated its grand opening in Newcastle. I met Heather, The Wild Raspberry’s owner, a few weeks ago and she has been very gracious to share her experiences with opening a restaurant and her recommendations for vendors. The shop was buzzing with excited visitors enjoying the wonderful fare and listening to live music. This luscious dessert, aptly topped with a raspberry, was featured today along with delicious sandwiches and other treats. Out front, someone had placed a giant pumpkin weighing at least 300 pounds. I could almost hear Linus saying, “it’s the great pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”
