Taylor Baker CJR 256 3-31-09 Feature Story Just across from the State Theatre on East Front Street in Traverse City, sits something new and different—an organic tea bar. In the kitchen window located at the rear of the Serenity Tea Bar & Café, you are sure to see 21-year-old Jack Fivecoate. He hastily prepares all-organic, vegetarian meals made from locally grown produce—and always with a smile on his face. The Traverse City native not only is the cook for the restaurant and café, but the founder and co-owner along with his brother, 28-year-old Kerry Hanley. “We kinda always wanted to do business together,” Hanley said, “I don’t know if either of us really saw it happening—but we’re really glad it did.” Fivecoate’s contribution to the restaurant doesn’t stop with founder and cook; he also researched and developed the many recipes for all the items on the menu. Along with the all-vegetarian selection, Serenity carries over 70 different 100 percent Organic Teas. “What’s interesting and unique about our menu is that I tea-infuse all the dressings, sauces, marinades, soups…and whatever else I can think of,” Fivecoate said. Fivecoate’s support for local businesses is what intrigued him when developing the menu. He wanted to incorporate as much local grown food as possible, and thinks that more restaurants should do the same. Not only is it good for the economy, he says it’s good for the body, too.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
