National Market Update for week of August 5th

FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 5, 2019
 
 
YOUR WEEKLY SMILE

'Drink of the Week' The Beehive Stranglelove

ABOUT THE STRANGELOVE COCKTAIL
San Francisco’s Beehive is a modernist escape with Sputnik lamps, ’70s-style plateware, fondue and snacks like honeycomb Chex mix and pigs in a blanket.
