• On Friday, May 20, J-Tea opens its second location on 19th Avenue, right next to the new Sweet Life Petite. Called “The Oolong Bar,” this location will serve “tea-inspired beverages and snacks” and will sell loose-leaf tea as well as made-to-order drinks and teas on nitro. The store will be open 9 am to 9 pm on May 20, and all attendees will receive coupons and free samples. The CABA Lion Dancers are booked to perform at 6:30 pm. See jteainternational.com for more info.

Pedalers Express, Eugene’s first bicycle delivery service (which delivers EW on Thursdays), has a new addition. The Distro Cycle “can now deliver 800 pounds of product in one run,” Pedalers tells EW. The Distro Cycle “has three wheels, a durable frame, an enclosed cargo container on the back, electrical assistance,” and the courier sits in the front steering with his/her feet while pedaling. The bike delivery company uses the cycle primarily to deliver GloryBee products such as “50-pound bags of flours and sugars, buckets of honey and syrup” to places such as Wandering Goat Coffee, Keystone Café and more. Pedalers Express can be contacted at pedex@catoregon.org.
