My first #WOOsh entry. @beancounter_bakery on Highland Street. I walked over on my lunch break and got a coffee. I did not get any of the delicious pastry today but if you’re there I can personally recommend the Lemon or White Chocolate Raspberry cupcakes. The Oreo cake is also delicious. #WOOsh #worcesterMA (I am terrible at selfies so I’ll apologize now for the bad photos of me. Selfies are the in rules though.)
Read the rules and participate
You’ve got a couple of hours to spend and it’s a nice day out but you can’t think of anything to do. We’ve all been there so here’s a suggestion: make a visit to WooBerry for ice cream then go check out the Pow! Wow! Worcester 2017 murals on the walls of Elm Park Community School. WooBerry is located at the corner of West and Highland street and the murals are about a block down West Street.
The Ice Cream
WooBerry’s owners have intentionally created a place for people to feel comfortable taking their time and relaxing. They’ve got a great playlist, seating, and included art from local artists. The staff is amazing. It’s always a pleasant experience.
The ice cream and yogurt are made in-house. They even have vegan ice cream. The ice cream is made in small batches so there are often new flavors to try.
There’s street parking on Highland, West, and surrounding streets. There’s also some parking in a lot behind the shop. If you park there, please be excellent and move your vehicle before you go look at the art at the school.
WooBerry is locally owned and operated. I prefer to support local business when I can. Follow WooBerry on Instagram @wooberry_icecream or Facebook.
After ice cream, head down the street and have a look at the beautiful 2017 Pow! Wow! Worcester murals on the walls of Elm Park Community School.
These are just a few of the murals. I’ve listed the artists names and links to their sites or social media below the map so you can check them out.
