Cook Create Celebrate
Sounds on the Street: September 5, 2014 7:00PM-10:30PM
Celebrate the end of summer in Downtown Glen Ellyn at Sounds on the Street! The music of Local Favorite and the School of Rock will be featured, jamming to the best summer hits. The live concert will start at 7pm with the School of Rock on Main Street, between Hillside and Duane. Enjoy bringing your local fare and libations out onto the street from the participating restaurants, including Tap House Grill, Santa Fe, fire + wine, Blackberry Market, Shannon's, and Cab's Wine Bar Bistro. If we have to say "goodbye" to summer, this is a festive way to do it. See you there!

Partner Profile: Brooke Ryan and her Tussie Mussies
You are all familiar with the fragrant, fresh and fantastic Tussie Mussies available at Marcel's every Friday of the growing season.  Now we would like to introduce you to the creative force behind them, Brooke Ryan.  Brooke and her family are native Australians.  In Australia, Brooke was a Certified Landscape Architect.  She worked on public projects, reforesting parklands and roadsides with native plantings and eco-friendly drainage systems.  But Brooke's passion was her own garden, and so she would create Tussie Mussies to sell at a local farmer's market every week.  Four years ago, Brooke's family was relocated to the Glen Ellyn area when Brooke's husband took a new job at a local horticulture company.  Brooke's passion became Marcel's good fortune when the two met!

Tussie Mussies, or nosegays, have existed in some form since medieval times when they were worn or carried around the head or bodice. A woman would carry a small, fragrant bouquet to help mitigate the often unpleasant public smells of town while she was out and about.  She would hold the bouquet to her 'nose' and it would be 'gay'. The term 'Tussie Mussie' came into fashion during the reign of Queen Elizabeth.  Integral to the tradition of the Tussie Mussies was the symbolism of the component plants, as the Tussie Mussie was often delivered as a gift with the "language of flowers" speaking.  

Brooke's Tussie Mussies are predominately from her own garden. She likes using flowering herbs and scented flowers.  Brooke does not cut the flowers until right before she delivers them to Marcel's so they are truly fresh and fragrant. The Tussies will last close to ten days with fresh water and care to protect them from direct sunlight. Thank you, Brooke, for these visual and aromatic treats! Tussies are available at Marcel's every Friday until Brooke's garden surrenders to the next season.
