Ah, a new month and a new year. The Holidays are always super crazy to prepare for and then just like that it’s all over. Typically you will have a few days to relax, recoup and get ready for the New Year. I love starting with a clean slate: making resolutions, planning and reflecting on the year before. At the beginning of each month the calendar looks manageable and…clean. As the days go on, it quickly fills up and gets crazy again…or as I like to call it “normal”. Before your calendar gets too crazy, let me tell you about some things we have planned for you this month at Palace!

Saturday, January 16, 2016: David Ramirez Concert (Palace on the Square, Canyon)
Our good friend is back with us and we couldn’t be happier. If you have never had the pleasure of hearing singer/songwriter, David Ramirez, you are truly missing out! His sweet sounds will be filling the Palace Room in Canyon. Space will be limited and will go very quickly. Purchase tickets online now by going to our store for a discounted rate. You can also purchase tickets at the door the night of the show. Doors will open at 7, opening act at 8 with David performing at 9pm.
Thursday, January 21, 2016: Public Cupping (Palace at the Paramount) 6-8pm
Have you ever heard your barista say, “You’re going to taste chocolate (or fruity, floral etc) notes in that cup”? Building your palate and being able to distinguish certain tasting notes in your coffee will help you better appreciate your morning cup. Cupping coffee is a chance to have an up close look at various coffees and get a better understanding of different coffee characteristics. This is a free experience, so grab a friend and come learn with us!
January Cause Latte: Cherry Cordial Latte, Benefiting Amarillo Opera
At Palace, we feel it is very important to give back to our community. Each month, we select a local non-profit and create a specialty drink to sell for that entire month. $1 of each cause drink sold goes back to that organization. In 2015, our customers gave over $2,000 to various non-profits by purchasing cause lattes! Who doesn’t want to drink a tasty drink and feel great about it because you are also giving back to the community?! Our cause for January is the Amarillo Opera. To find out more about the Amarillo Opera check out their website.
If you would like us to consider your non-profit organization as one of our causes of the month, check out the criteria and fill out an application here.
Be sure to follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for more exciting Palace news and events throughout the month and year! As your schedule fills up and gets crazy, we sure hope you will make stopping in at Palace part of your “normal”!
Cheers to a New Year!
