Here at Matteo’s I feel the heat, We all do, especially when it’s in the upper 80′s even into the 90′s outside. The heat is really bad in the greenhouses even when the fans are running on high. This was just one reading
So when I think of Hot weather I think of Drinks! And I know alcoholic drinks make you sweat more (from experience) but that is just what I think of, is to reach for a cocktail.
So a cocktail at a greenhouse? Sure! Matteo’s can’t be called “The Hippest Hothouse in the West End” without serving cocktails. (Of course we don’t serve under age, we don’t charge, so you have to be a customer that is here to shop and not just come for the free alcohol) that is my fine print disclosure. ha ha!!
So Matteo’s wants to be set apart from all the other greenhouses in the area, how does one go about that task? Yes I want to have the best service and most friendly staff, I want to have the most herbs and perennials around, I want to be the place where people come to learn more about the herbs and how to cook with, and use them. I try to do all of these things, but sometimes that’s just not enough!
Matteo will sometimes ask would you like an adult beverage, beer, wine; red or white, maybe a cocktail. Husbands especially like the thought of letting the wife shop and have a drink while he waits. Most recently discovered that with all the herbs Matteo makes you sample, having a drink helps to wash them all down or cleanse your pallet.
So why not gather up your coworkers and come down to Matteo’s Herbs Galore at 139 C Street, Johnstown, and have a afterwork cocktail with Matteo and sample some herbs.
