We've been closed only on Sunday since Oct of last year. Monday is very slow at the commercial center, very very slow, most of our neighbors aren't open on Monday so it's been maybe a tenth of the sales of any other day of the week. As we've said before, we want to be open more, a coffeehouse should be open early and open late, and seven days a week.
So that said, we are closing on Monday, but adding hours on Saturday. Our new hours effective immediately will be
Our stage, we have been asked a lot about what we plan to do with it. Number one thing is to provide it for free to free shows. What that means is if you have a band and you want to play, great we can do that, but you can not charge for the show at all. There are two reasons behind this, one we are a coffeehouse, not a venue. We sell coffee. Second our stage isn't properly equipped to be rented, we have no PA of our own and the stage lights are just sorta so so.
Will we ever rent our the stage? Quite possibly yes, yes for after hours shows etc. but right now no, we don't want to rent it.
Will our hours change? absolutely, as soon as we start hiring it will be to lengthen our hours (you know its just been the two of us since October)
Stay tuned and thanks for all the support so far. We felt the love from this community from day one and it's been very inspiring. Thank You.

a 1965 Italian-Spanish science fiction horror film, produced by Fulvio Lucisano, directed by Mario Bava, that stars Barry Sullivan and Norma Bengell. The screenplay, by Bava, Alberto Bevilacqua, Callisto Cosulich, Antonio Roman and Rafael J. Salvia, was based on an Italian-language science fiction short story, Renato Pestriniero's "One Night of 21 Hours". American International Pictures released the film as the supporting film on a double feature with Daniel Haller's Die, Monster, Die! (1965). The story follows the horrific experiences of the crew members of two giant spaceships that have crash landed on a forbidding, unexplored planet. The disembodied inhabitants of the world possess the bodies of the crew who died during the crash, and use the animated corpses to stalk and kill the remaining survivors. Years after its release, some critics have suggested that Bava's film was a major influence on Ridley Scott's Alien (1979) and Prometheus (2012), in both narrative details and visual design.
