Button Button at Lofty Pursuits Pursuits (series 2)

The new Lofty Pursuits buttons are in. That first batch did not last long. We've been giving out buttons, one per customer, for the past few weeks. They've been a tremendous hit. The first series had solid colored backgrounds, this time we have 5 new styles, with patterned backgrounds. Just loaded up the jar with them this morning. Free with a purchase.
If you can, spread the word that these are back with new designs.

Share Nights at Lofty Pursuits

We are currently scheduling nights where we share proceeds of the evening with a partnered 401c3 nonprofit. We have some nights still open in November and December. If you are involved or know of a non-profit that might be a good fit with Lofty Pursuits, please have them get in touch with us. Please share this post so that this information gets out there.

DeSoto Pharmacy of Lake City, We hardly Knew You

We just got the sad news that a week to the day after we visited the DeSoto Pharmacy and Soda Fountain that they have closed the soda fountain for good. We are very very sad about this. Their service was nice, and this means that 55 years of history is gone. We're still here trying to keep the tradition alive, but the places we have been learning from may not be around much longer without your business. Make sure you eat at that local place if you can instead of the chain store, Play attention to groups like Locally Owned Tallahassee, and help keep our local places and history alive.
Known losses of the past year or two: Perry Florida, High Springs Florida.
In the mean time we'll keep on trying to find the surviving soda fountains, learn what we can off them, help them learn what they may have forgotten, and we will tell you about them. If you know of any surviving soda fountains in the region (We know of Izzo's, Apalachicola, and Wakulla Springs) let us know.
