Join The Silver City MainStreet Project for Story Time and learn about how Dale Rucklos and Renya Craig, owners of Tranquilbuzz Coffee House, became Kick-Ass Entrepreneurs! More than a coffee house... Tranquilbuzz is a gathering space envisioning a new model of community, cooperation, and collaboration. The inspired vision was seeded 35 years ago. Over the last 7 years, it has come to fruition, and the Buzz has taken on a life of its own.

"Tranquilbuzz holds a special place in the heart of our community," said Cindy "Renee" Provencio, Silver City MainStreet Project's Administrative Assistant. "Dale and Renya curate important programing for the community as well provide an excellent space for community collaboration and creativity! We are so excited they agreed to share their story of their entrepreneur journey!" 

The Silver City MainStreet Project recommends arriving at Little Toad Creek Brewery & Distillery at 5:30 PM to allow time for ordering food and drinks along with a bit of schmoozing before the story starts at 6 PM.
