Fire Sale Weekend!

Two years ago on 01/26/16, Blip faced some major adversity after a fire closed the original Cafe and Roasting Facility. Only because of the community effort to move the shop and roasting equipment, was Blip able to reopen in the West Bottoms several months later.

In light of the event, but more importantly in recognition of everyone who helped keep Blip on its feet, join us for a weekend of Pop-Ups and Sales.
