The 402 Arts Collective and Aromas + Bliss would like to invite you and your guy or galentine to Benson this Valentines Day! We are joining forces for a night of music, coffee and sweets.

This is a great event for those of all ages who want a quieter space to spend time with your loved one. Music will start around 7pm and continue on until 9pm. So stop in after your early dinner reservations from Lot 2 or Benson Brewery, we can't think of a better way to wrap up your evening of love.

Speaking of love, have you heard about the drink of the month?! This strawberry mocha is a true delight. Whether it’s made with our local Prairieland milk or one of our organic alternative milks (we found that coconut milk pairs best), the strawberry mocha is the perfect sweet treat to end your Valentine’s Day.  

For such special occasions, our coffee likes to dress up as well, so for this Valentine’s Day event we will be offering our newest single origin coffee from Costa Rica! This honey processed roast promises to fix even a broken heart with its winey, dark chocolate and smooth bodied taste. And like all good love, this roast will be hard to find. We won’t be brewing it in any of the stores, but we will be offering it on our shelves as retail so take advantage of this event to taste it!

The 402 is having a pre-sale on tickets for $20! This gets you and your love bird each a cup of our limited Costa Rican coffee, two sweet treats from Bliss Bakery and two tickets to an evening of music by a local artist. Get them now because prices go up to $25 day of or at the door. Find tickets here:

For the rest of the month, we promise to keep the love coming as we have a list of other tasty products in the shops. New doughnuts keep showing up in the flavors of Chocolate Strawberry, Red Velvet and I heard a rumor of a Vegan Chai being tested out downtown for all of our vegan lovers! Our bakers over at Bliss have yet to disappoint, so keep tabs on what they are creating through our Instagram @Aromasbliss and all other social pages!

Our new membership key chains for 2017 are also still available in all three shops. Nothing says "I love you" like 15% off of all your sweethearts favorite pastries and coffee... for the rest of the year. Now that’s a love that keeps on giving!
