Flying M is casting the spirit of Halloween over the coffee shop for First Thursday. The beloved hangout is putting on an atypical mixed-media art show featuring several local artists, including Danielle Demary, recent BW cover artist Noble Hardesty, Nels Jensen, Kelly Knopp, Ryan Morrison, Mandy Riley, Tony Rios, Erin Ruiz and April VanDeGrift.
It's rare for the Flying M to have an exhibition with so many artists, but Kelly McLaughlin, buyer for the coffee shop, said they tried it around Halloween a few years ago and decided to "revive the concept in the form of Spooky Brew, a Halloween-themed show."
The evening will give First Thursday goers a shot at experiencing something else spooky, though maybe not in the same way. The Idaho Kombucha Company will offer a taste of its first-ever coffee kombucha, made with Flying M's cooperation, of course. Kombucha is a fermented tea with a strange brew: a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, or SCOBY.
Enter the creepy art show if you dare, and test your bravery by trying the coffee kombucha.
