Okay, we really have no idea if this blog makes sense to people- if you "get" something from visiting this sight in regards to what is happening at the Hard Bean and if that information is clear and concise yet personal. So, once again we are open to suggestions and critique concerning this transaction of relevant culturally/neighborhoody info.
There is so much going on this week it is crazy so let me make sense of it for you.

Once again, we have a very full evening of amazing music this weekend. Starting up at 6PM, Troy Allem is with us after performing at last month's open mic. I just found out that Troy is also a gifted poet and that surely translates into great lyrics. Playing acoustic rock and indie, you can find Troy on myspace at www.myspace.com/roughtoothmusic
And coming back due to very popular and enthusiastic demand, Rocket 88 from Oaks, PA is back at the cafe and so many people have been calling to make sure that they will really be here. I am listening to their music right now at www.myspace.com/r88band and you should check it out. They are a classic rock band that is definately a reincarnation of classic rockers like the Dead and Allman brothers. Don't miss this but come early to get a seat!!
Sunday, Jan. 18, Cafe doors close at 6PM and reopen at 6:30 for the PLAY!!!!!
We are so proud to house the encore performance of Theatre in Motion's (www.mimsdboyertown.com) production of "A Little Princess" slated for a 7PM showtime. This is an amazing play that originally shown at the Rhoads Opera House and is coming off of last year's successful play, Unclaimed Carriages. Drinks, light sandwhiches and desserts will be available before the show and during intermission. Tickets are on sale now for 7$ at the cafe with limited seating available- tickets also for sale at the door on Sunday night.
That's a wrap. That's also a lot of cultural opportunities that is sure to help Boyertown develope it third saturday/weekend program. We are excited to be a part of that and kindly ask you to support us and the different people and programs highlighted this weekend.
Lastly, we know we have been doing a so-so job with our food selection and we are making dramatic changes in regards to that.
