Toast and Jams: The Duffield/Caron Project

Lovely jazz, boogie, blues with Lorraine Caron on vocals (she's so in touch with the audience and invites us in), Tom Duffield on Keyboard (who melds his being with the listeners) and Joe Bradley on percussion (who keeps things tight and brings them together). A wonderful way to unwind from a stressful week and prepare for the coming one.

Art Hop: Francisco Ormaza. Music TBA

Some of he images are a result of making a quantity of prints that are made subconsciously then taking a step back and combining and overlapping prints in a meaningful way on the wall. For me this is a way to process the subconscious externally. I also have some sculptural ceramic work and drawings.

Art Hop: Aurore Uwase. Music by The Brass Rail

According to Aurore, painting, for me, is a deeply personal and meditative process. In my experimentation with colors of various media, I explore Ideas, thoughts, and feelings; as they converge to reveal a myriad of shapes, color, and texture, I become a conduit for which they express themselves on canvas.

The music will be by the Brass Rail our special friend(s) and brass quintet that plays all kinds of music and will get your feet a-tappin’ .  As always, pizza and wine and Bell's beer samples. You can also order a light dinner or a snack.

Pączki Day! It's best to place an order

We make what we call “Church Basement Pączki”. That means that they are like the babushki make in the church basement. They are delicate, rum flavored, and may I say, beauties, lightly filled with traditional fillings. Well, almost, we also make chocolate ones. They are so good they will make your Polish grandmother weep.
