With warmer weather ahead and school soon to let out, the time for mapping out adventure and accessible fun is near! Fortunately, residents of Winnfield won’t have to wander far. Thanks to the kind and creative efforts of Fredrick and Melody Bonnette, owners and operators of the Social Coffee House (located at 301 E Main Street), locals can now enjoy more than just their usual caffeine fix. As of last Thursday, April 14th, ‘Movie Night’ is here, and it’s only the first on a long list of ideas soon to be in the works for our community’s pleasure.
After researching the most popular outdoor showings, the Social’s team landed on the 2017 action-comedy Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. The free-to-view film went up a little after eight o’clock following a brief intermission due to technical difficulties, but thankfully that didn’t slow the team down or dampen the excitement of their turnout. If you missed out on Thursday’s fun, mark your calendars for April 29th, and don’t forget to bring a chair!
If you have yet to find the time to stop in and support this small local business, let this be your sign. If coffee isn’t your thing, rest assured there is something to your taste behind that bar. One of their cold refreshers, blended smoothies or even their newly added milkshakes should entice you to make it a regular stop.
If not, the infectious laughter and easy-going manner of the Bonnettes and their staff is more than enough reason to lend them your time and business. “You walk through that door, you become family, and we want everyone to know we remember every face and do our best to make you feel that walking over our threshold.”, says Melody. She and her husband want nothing more than to give back to the community and create a safe and comfortable space where residents know their coffee is fresh and their best interests are always at the top of the list.
