As the weather warms up and summer approaches, there’s nothing more fun than getting together with family and friends. Summer is the perfect time for cook outs, picnics, and refreshing cold drinks! One classic summer drink that is super delicious and easy to make is the Lemon Shandy. There are many different ways to make a Shandy and everyone has their favorite recipe. Some people mix in orange soda while others sprinkle a little chile powder or Tobassco. However, the most popular way to enjoy this summer drink is with lemonade and beer. Below, we’ve shared our favorite Lemon Shandy recipe for you to enjoy with friends. Let us know what you think and share your Shandy-making pics with us, via instagram, by tagging them with #atwestend. While you’re at it, don’t miss out on our limited time sale on At West End’s glass teardrop drink dispenser, now only $25! (was $55)
For your listening pleasure, here’s our latest At West End playlist: Full Bloom. This one’s got everything from chilled-out soul to punk pop. Look out for the Beatles and Elvis covers! We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed making it. If you’ve got any suggestions for songs or artists that we should check out, please let us know by tweeting to @at_west_end. We’d love to hear from you! Enjoy…

Yesterday, we stumbled across these amazing DIY iPhone cases, via The Purl Bee, and knew we had to share them with you guys. Each case features a 33 by 69 grid cross stitch case that allows you to customize your iPhone case with your very own cross stitch design. This is the perfect marriage of crafty and techy design and the result is quite charming. After a quick google search, we found Lanas Crespo, an Etsy store that sales cases with their own custom-stitched designs. Of course, everyone at the AWE offices immediately feel in love with the mustache and deer patterns. Click “read more” to look at some of our favorite iPhone cross stitch creations.
