  • Community Weekend on Central Street
    October 10-11, 2015

    Central Street in Evanston

    On Saturday and Sunday, October 10-11, The Spice House in Evanston and many of our Central Street neighbors will be donating a percentage of our sales to the local charity of your choice. What could be simpler? You make your regular purchases on Central Street (and maybe a little something extra for you or someone special) and you donate to well-deserving charities in the community. Nothing feels better than crossing something off your to-do list and helping your community at the same time!

    For more information, including a list of available charities, please visit the Central Street website.

  • Lure and Lore of Spices at the Shorewood Public Library
    Tuesday, November 10
    6:30 pm
    Shorewood Public Library, 3920 North Murray Avenue Shorewood, Wisconsin

    Join the Shorewood Public Library on Tuesday, November 10th at 6:30 p.m. as Nathan Villa of The Original Milwaukee Spice House presents "The Lure and Lore of Spices." Nathan will share interesting historical facts, anecdotes and entertaining tales of spices. You'll learn how spices and herbs play an important role in creating delicious meals.

    The spice trade was the world's biggest industry, destroying empires and leading to the discovery of new continents. Today, you only have to travel to the nearest supermarket or spice store, but cultural flavors still exist.

    Registration is not required for this program. For questions please contact Hayley Johnson at or 414 847-2670.
