Ingrid Michaelsen sings a song about love in the wintertime that draws people's attention. I like this song.
This is relavant because here at the cafe we are getting a little nostalgic as Christmas is coming and decorations are up and the Hard Bean is buzzing with chatter about Holiday parties and gift giving and times spent with the closest of family and friends. We wish you the very best in this precious season and hope that you include us in your holiday schedules- to relax, to grab a sofa and a friend and a drink. Cheers...
Here's what's on the menu for this week besides the new panini's and deserts/pastries we are providing- check them out for sure!
Tuesday, Dec. 16, 7-9PM
Yes, Yes, Yes, we have Chess, Chess, Chess and you would make Imra's day if you came around to duel him or glean valuable game strategy.
Wednesday, Dec. 17, 7-9ish PM
We are ever excited to have Sam teaching another lesson this night but that is just the begginning as he is also providing the punch. Yes, we are having a Christmas party after the lesson and there is a wide open invite to anyone who has attended, is considering doing Yoga with us, or just wants to hang out with limber folks like us. Feel free to bring a snack and remember a drop in donation is appreciated.
Thursday, Dec. 18, 7-9PM
Scrabble is happening this night and even though there is no holiday party planned by the ladies, there should be leftovers from the yoga party and anyone is welcome to enter into the game and spell out holiday words like...bazaar, mistletoe and nativity.
Friday, Dec. 19, 7-11PM
This Friday we have a full lineup with music that promises to be all over the place from young love originals to old time rock and roll. From 7-9 Taking Motion is in the house for the second time and promises to entertain both friends and cafe lingerers. Going late into the evening, The Reluctants were not so reluctant about playing at the Bean- in fact that were very excited- like giddy school girls on the eve of their first junior high dance. Should be a great night.
Saturday, Dec. 20, 7-9PM
Mr. Cliff Stakonis is back in town to do his normal routine at the cafe. Most likely he will be rolling in accompanied by his mandolin player and drummer and they all make for a smooth collage. Show the man some love and don't let the chicago blues get you down.
Sunday, Dec. 21, 6-8PM
Mr. Tom Post probably prefers not to be referred to as Mister but I was feeling it. Tom is back in toe at the cafe and we are all hoping for some Sunday coffee drinkers to come out and spend an early evening with us...
Which could turn into a late night if you wanted to stick around for Front Porch Church that is getting started around 7:30 with chatting and continuing until nine with more formal chatting about life and love and God and spiritual things like everything. We are a diverse group of friends that have so much to bring to the conversational table and we would like to invite you out to share your thoughts and ask your questions.
That is the week on our end. Another Reminder about the amazing Christmas Eve's Eve party that is happening next Tuesday night, Dec. 23rd, starting at 7PM at the cafe. The night will include live music and carolling and classic movies and carriage rides and good times in B-town, Christmas style. Invite family and friends and foes out to join us at the cafe as we make our community a festive and unified one.
Whoever reads this entire blog- way to go, I talk too much. Leave a comment if you get this far.
I have to go home and go to bed.
Much love and thanks so much for your continued support.
