Roots in the Raw is back!

Hey folks. I'm super stoked to announce that our Wed. night music series, "Roots in the Raw" is back! What is this? It's a night where I have hand selected some friends/musicians to host an intimate evening of music & create it into something original & different each time. Every Wed. of the month will be a different theme & vibe all together. Your host for these events will be, Chris Q. Murphy, Gypsy George, Matt Frye & Rabbi Darkside all bringing their own unique flavor to the table on alternating weeks. Starting out this Wed. Feb. 29th, Rabbi D. will host an amazing group that includes a little soul, A little funk & a whole lotta hip-hop! If you've never been to a night hosted by Rabbi YOU NEED TO BE HERE! It's a great time for all ages for sure.7-9pm!

Also be sure & check out the artist for this Friday night. A Roots favorite, Scott Dennis will open the night at 8pm with some good ol' country music followed by Minneapolis singer/songwriter, Dustin Lee.

As always...byob & wine. Tips are much appreciated! See ya real soon.

On the music menu this weekend...

...We have something brand new for starters, something familiar for the main course & something exotic for dessert.  Maybe that's a bit of a stretch & confusing? How about this....starting at 7pm on Friday, come sample the delicious sounds of a new resident of Park Slope, miss Caroline Rose. Then stick around & get your fill of the soulful Adrian Coleman, a long time patron & friend of Roots Cafe. As if that's not enough, be sure & save room for the sweet melodies of Hugh Trimble...not really exotic...but he is touring & not a Brooklyn resident so...I Said it was a stretch! Hope to see you all there. By the way...we will be serving real food throughout the night.

Art, music & love in the air...

 That's right folks... That special day is upon us to celebrate all that is, "LOVE." Here at Roots we especially love our community & we want to share that with you through a special night of music, tonight, Fri. Feb. 10th. Starting at 8pm we will have some hand picked singers & musicians of this fine neighborhood assembled together to perform some of the greatest love songs of old & new. The entire night will be hosted by Gypsy George & the  barista boys of Roots.

  Come with the one you love...or come alone & who knows...maybe you'll find someone to love. Either way...just get here! As always byob & wine.

Thank you for being a friend...

Hello everyone! How many of you started singing the Golden Girls theme song when you read the header...ok, just me? Anyway, I wanted to say a quick thanks to you as a community for your continued support with the cafe. Without you this wouldn't be possible...in fact it'd be pointless...& way less fun. I love this neighborhood & am proud to serve you daily.
I mean seriously,... whats better than having your friends stop by & hang out with you at work? Well...maybe hanging outside of work...but it's still pretty awesome anyway. So on that note, let's all hang together tonight for some live music & good times. As always byob & wine. (If you do...please buy a little something or leave a tip of sorts to help out) I'll be making my sandwiches & coffee throughout the night so come hungry!
 My good buddy Chris Q. Murphy will be hosting the night & playing his own solo set followed by, "For Everst" Music starts up at 8pm sharp!
