Dear Friends-

Spring Fevah!

Hey there!
What a beautiful weekend it was! I hope you all enjoyed it :) This week, we've got an array of things going on here at the Bean and would love to inform you of these events so that you can get as much out of them as possible.

Tuesday, May 12th

7-9 PM Antiques Discussion
join us at Hard Bean to discuss a variety of antiques!

Wednesday, May 13th

9:30 - 10:45 AM
Donna O'Rourke will be visiting us at the Bean on Wednesday morning again this week! The classes are $10 weekly, and provide a great workout for both new comers as well as regulars. Stop by and check it out and start off your day the right way - feel energized and empowered!

7:00 - 8:30 PM
The usual, but always new, Vinyasa flow yoga with Sam is happening again this Wednesday night! Great for beginners and advanced, Sam caters to all levels and is willing to provide help to you personally if you have any concerns with your practice. Another great aspect of this class is the music - personally, I find it relaxing but energizing, which may seem counter-intuitive but if you join us in the class this week, you may find some clarity. Mind, Body, and Soul, ya know? Don't forget your $2 donation!

Thursday, May 14th

Poetry Open Mic 7 - 9 PM
Share your thoughts, feelings, and opinions orally at the Hard Bean's Open Mic Night! We encourage poets of all sorts to express themselves. Even if you do not write poetry of your own, you are welcome to read some of your favorites to the audience.

Table Tops 9-11
If you haven't heard them yet, come visit Hard Bean, relax, and enjoy the talent that is the Table Tops. Two young, talented males, Carson Hershberger and Tyler Haddad, provide some acoustic covers with additions of different instruments, as well as original music. Check them out at . An Italian soda or a smoothie would best compliment these guys - they are so fresh!

Saturday, May 16th

Bake Sale 10AM-2PM
YUM! So many delectible confections to purchase at such low prices! Great desserts complement a great latte or cappuccino (and if you're feeling wild, try adding one of our many flavors!)

Blue Mountain Junction 7-9 PM
This band is so entertaining! Think older men with banjoes having a grand old time playing country/bluegrass music!

Ryan Lewis 9-11 PM
Hailing from York, Pennsylvania, this guy is upbeat and fun with his acoustic guitar and passion for music. Check him out at ... very "feel good" music!

We've got some great things happening this week at the Hard Bean! Make sure to stop by for any of the experiences we're offering this week, or just to relax and enjoy your favorite cup of coffee or tea.

Have a wonderful week, all!
Be Fearless.

Much love,
Ms Bean
