Wow it is so hard to believe that 2009 is drawing to a close. I have spent a great deal of time reflecting on the past year. We have had some things that worked and other things that didn't, but each time we learned from the experience.
One thing I know is that I am so grateful to everyone for supporting us this past year. Being a part of your lives is such an honor.
I want to let you know about some exciting changes that will be coming up in the next couple of months. You know we have been offering some great music on Saturday nights. But it is time to take it a step further. We will be setting up a "listening room" on the other side. This room will have limited seating and offer a quieter environment for those of you who want to not only hear great music, but get to know the singer/songwriters behind it. The goal for next year is to offer at least 6 to 8 shows in this format. Ticket prices will range from $8-12 per person. Of course, we will still have live shows in the main bar area, karaoke, darts and all the fun stuff we have always had.
Muisc is so important. I say this because it is what brings people together. I have been able to spend alot of time talking to singers and songwriters because of our Songwriter Showcase and when you can sit and listen to the words you understand the passion and feeling that goes into a creation. In a city that is so divided in so many ways music is a hope that surpasses words. It does not matter if you are black, white, rich, poor, gay, straight, male, female or anything in between. This is the reason I want to expand what we have to offer. There is so much magic in the music and we are so fortunate to live in a city that is alive with original artists. My mission is to build a place where all people can come together and hear some of the best music in the city.
We wish you all the best holiday season ever!
