Summer shindigs.

 Hey folks. Just realized I didn't post last week...oops! Oh well, we had our usual good times in music & such. This week will be a little chill on that end considering it's July 4th weekend. No music this Wed. or Fri. but we will be open for cafe/coffee business as usual.

 There are a few changes for the summer schedule you may want to take note of. For starters our regular Wed. night music series "Roots in the Raw" will be canceled until the Fall. We will however continue with our Friday nights & we are booked solid with some amazing acts.

 We are starting to close at 7pm Mon.-Thur. due to less business during the summer. Fridays will be open until 10:30ish with the music events. Saturdays & Sundays we will close between 6 & 7 depending on the flow of the day.

 Lastly I would like to invite you all out to South Paw on July 9th for a very special evening of music called "Roots Family Reunion." Mark your calendars for this event & I will be sending more details next week. All you need to know for now is that this is gonna be a wonderful evening with a collective of musicians who have all performed at Roots cafe over the past two years helping form this thriving music community. The theme of the evening is country & bluegrass so we picked a line up that best represent those styles.

Also don't forget the music in Prospect Park tomorrow night. We will all be hanging out there so join us. Here's a little video of one of our favorites, Justin Townes Earle, who will be performing.
