I haven’t had a second to give any updates on the Cafe, except 140 characters at a time. Here’s a (slightly) longer one.
We’ve been doing spectacularly well, thanks to our neighbors and local cyclists. Weather has been a bit dodgy for the past couple weeks, and folks are a little less animated now that the holidays are over, but I’m past worrying about getting people into the Cafe, and on to bigger and better things.
We’ve started a movie night. Tonight will be our second week. Last week we played Willie Wonka (the original with Gene Wilder), and it was great. More on this soon.
We’re also getting into the rhythm of first Friday openings, and starting to put together some interesting activities, music, etc.
This month, on February 5th, we’ll be hosting an opening of ‘Getting There’ – photography by Christopher Hall. We’ll also have B Spoke Tailor making made-to-order arm warmers out of recycled sweaters, and a nighttime bike ride after. There will be music, and fun of various sorts.
We’re also embarking on an experiment – laptop-free weekends. I’m devoting a whole post to that today as well. Stay tuned.
First month in the bag. I’m looking forward to many more. If you haven’t already, stop by and introduce yourself. We like making connections.
