Girl Scouts combine cookies and Valentine’s Day at the bookstore — Waterbury Roundabout
Bridgeside Books will jump this weekend with special events related to Valentine’s Day and Girl Scout Cookie season.
Waterbury’s Girl Scout Troop 30228 will host a cookie sale at Bridgeside Books on Sunday, February 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The sale has a special Valentine’s Day theme, as members of the troop created approximately 100 cards handmade valentines day with quotes about cookies. Stop by for cookies or buy for Valentine’s Day, a book and a card to give as a Valentine’s Day gift.
The troop will have boxes of all the usual Girl Scout cookie varieties. He is also planning another pop-up sale at Shaw’s in Waterbury on February 20.
Meanwhile, special events at Bridgeside are popular with Saturday night’s Not Your Average Date Night already sold out, according to store owner Katya d’Angelo. The free event suggests a romantic or other visit for couples to explore the store by following book-themed prompts. The number of places is limited but d’Angelo has a waiting list in case of cancellation. Email [email protected] with questions or to be added to the list.
The shop still has a stock of wrapped books for its February project “Blind Date with a Book.” Hardcover and paperback, fiction and non-fiction titles come with a short “bio” provided, making them a surprise for buyers or recipients. The books are priced at $6.99.
