Heart of Glass - Blenko Glass

Blenko Glass is a West Virginia treasure that spans generations. Nothing symbolizes the state of West Virginia better or more beautifully than Blenko Glass. We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

The Bluegrass Kitchen - Charleston WV

Blenko loves Blenko and Blenko can be found in some of the nicest places!

One of our favorite places for brunch on the weekends in The Bluegrass Kitchen on Charlestons East End (located on the northeast corner of Washington and Elizabeth streets near the state Capitol).

The Bluegrass Kitchen has "Eclectic comfort food with a modern edge made with fresh ingredients. Our specialty is vegetarian and omnivorous dishes made from ingredients naturally grown/raised within West Virginia and the Appalachians."

While admiring the artwork adoring the restaurant's walls on a recent visit, what should we see but - a BLENKO water bottle (not placed by TheBlenkoProject - scouts honor)!

With its warm and artsy environment and uniquely delicious (and vegetarian friendly) menu - the Bluegrass Kitchen is a required stop for anyone planning to dine in the Charleston area.

You can find The Bluegrass Kitchen's Daily Specials at their website .

The waterbottle does anyone know how many they have made?
Or the history of this item?
You mention handled water bottle

Let's play "find the Blenko." When Blenko is spotted on display or for sale, tell the owners, "I am in this store because of your Blenko.

Perhaps HH can start a master list. Bluegrass kitchen, purple moon, fleatique...............
