YUP 2015-05-28

Introducing Backroads & Byways: Medina


On Saturday, June 13th, in partnership with Slow Road Travel, we’re renting a big yellow school bus and taking 40 YUPs on the road less traveled to explore the historic Erie Canal village of Medina. We’re getting you behind-the-scenes access to in-progress building rehabs, a completed loft conversion, and showcasing exciting local businesses and projects that are breathing new life into this small community. Your $20 ticket includes dinner at the Shirt Factory Cafe. Get your tickets NOW ’cause sales close at 11:59 PM on Saturday, June 6th.


Highlights include: 810 Meadworks (including live music at an amazing historic open air venue behind the former R.H. Newell Shirt Factory), a behind-the-scenes look at the ongoing rehab of Bent’s Opera House, and a tour of the completed conversion of the R.H. Newell Shirt Factory building.


Save the Date: Bikes, Beer & Buildings returns


Your favorite YUP original–Bikes, Beer & Buildings, is back! Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 11th. Tickets go on sale mid-June. Stay tuned to Instagram and Facebook for details!
