Dear Friends-
Finally we are having consistently wonderful weather including the blessing of cooler temps and some pretty amazing thunderstorms reminding of the unstable beauty of summer. Most of us are just thankful for the sun and June's grumblings are almost behind us...soggy socks and memories. In that vein of joy, please keep reading and see what we have going on this week.

Night Yoga classes that are usually offered for Monday evenings have been switched, for the summer, to Tuesday nights.

Tuesday, June 30th, 7-8:30PM
Like some of you smart ones guessed, there is Yoga on Tuesday night with Jillian Prout starting at 7PM with 2$ donations welcomed.

Wednesday, July 1st
9:30-10:45 AM
The morning Yoga class is in session with Diana O'Rourke so all you free moms and students should feel invited to participate in the class and start your day off well and bring the middle of your week back to balance.
And Sam is back from vaykay (vacation) and is ready to do class with everyone like usual on Wednesday nights with donations welcomed.

Friday, July 3rd, 7-11PM
From 7-9 we have Troy Allen in the house sharing old and new songs from his album- Chewing on Marbles. Troy's tunage can be found at
We also have a band from 9-11 called the Green Apple Squad and I can't find them on Myspace and I have no idea what this squad can pull off musically so come out and give it a chance.

Saturday, July 4th, Independence Day! OPEN!
Most of you will be spending a super day with family and friends and barbeques and fireworks. Consider fitting us into that day as we will be open the entire day and trying to get some music together for the evening.
In light of music...
Miss Franki Alazar is back to do some music from 7-9PM. She was with us last weekend and must have enjoyed herself so much that she is back this weekend. You can find her at

Sunday, July 5th, 2-4PM
Okay, so these ladies are always on my case that a bunch of them gather on Sunday afternoons to knit and crochet- and they call it Bitch and Stitch and folks interested in this hobby are welcome to attend. I personally like to cross-stich so I'm not sure if I am officially invited? Hum?

Monday, July 6th, 10:30AM-12:30PM
Monday morning is all about the kids with two great events scheduled. First off, Nadine is with us from 10:30 till 11:30 doing a Story time for kids. Following her, Miss Balloon Heart is in house doing balloon magic with your kids till 12:30. Take advantage of your kids wholesome distractedness and enjoy the other joys of mommyness including mom dates and coffee.

Much love
Mr. Bean

Laa, de da, de da

Okay, so we are in a Recession, half of June was cold and wet, the Phillies are not contending Champs and...your Blog has been a no-show for almost 2 months. Mr. Bean cannot help with the first three unfortunate realities but I take full responsibility for the Blog dissappearance. We will have the blog back up to snuff with weekly updates about what's up and going down here at the Bean. Excuse us and thank you for your continued loyalty and support.

And so, it is Tuesday night but better late than never.

Wed, June 24th
Morning Yoga is still happening. You all know the deal so come out and give it a try in the coolness of the morning.

While Carriage Rides are happening from 7:30- 10PM, our friends from the Band, Me Against Myself have made some personal invites and put together a whole night of music with select bands. I will try to get the skinny and get that info about the bands out to you but as for now picture- alternative, rockish type tunage.
