Nekter Juice Bar Opening Friday Near UCI
Anne Marie Panoringan
How much available storefront does UCI have? Too much, since ANOTHER eatery is slated to open this weekend. Okay, it's technically a juicery, but we don't nitpick. . .much.
A liquid alternative for fighting off the Freshman 15, Nekter specializes in 100% all natural, raw, vegan juices and smoothies. Founded in 2010, their original storefront was in Costa Mesa. Three years later and double-digit locations strong, it was only a matter of time before they tapped the college market.
On September 6, Nekter Juice Bar's doors will open bright and early at 7 a.m. Specials include free 16-ounce juices and smoothies until 11 a.m., 1-day cleanses for $35 (while supplies last) and a $25 gift card to the first 50 customers. So if our frugal minds think this through, we can get there at the crack of dawn for free drinks and possibly a gift card that we can apply towards the advertised cleanse. As long as we don't poop rainbows and unicorns, we'll give it a go.
Nekter will open at 4237 Campus Dr, Suite B163, (949) 660-0071; www.nektarjuicebar.com.
