See the Tumbler Tumble Today
You know the Tumbler, that massive sculpture located inside Park Central Square in downtown Springfield? Well every so often, the Tumbler gets tumbled—that means it is rotated into a different orientation. We’re big fans of this because who doesn’t love art that moves instead of living a totally stationary life? That reorientation means we see a new piece of art every season. Well, at The Coffee Ethic, they love when the Tumbler is tumbled too, and their patio offers the perfect view if you want to watch it happen. That’s why starting at 4:30 today they are hosting a little patio party with beer, seasonal drinks and some art-rotation entertainment.
On Instagram, The Coffee Ethic said this annual event honors the coffee shop’s beloved original owner, Tom Billionis, who passed away in 2016, and the support customers have shown throughout the years. They’re donating all proceeds to Ozark Greenways, which they said on Instagram is: “an organization that shares our commitment to sustainability and a greener planet. Ozark Greenways has made significant contributions to our community through the design and development of an amazing trail system, but they also work hard to conserve and protect the features that make the Ozarks such a beautiful place to live.” We couldn’t agree more! So let’s grab a coffee to celebrate the greenways, the memory of Tom, and Springfield’s iconic sculpture.
