Do Not Miss This!


 

Join us at our upcoming events!

Check out the next few weeks' schedules, we hope to see you soon!

As promised, I posted our alcohol menu online. Now you can see what books we have and what brews we have. We recently added Sake to our menu. Is anyone interested in a "happy Hour"? Its something I have been thinking about. Is that crazy? Then again, who doesn't love discounts?

Tomorrow, Friday February 22nd, 6:00-8:00pm- Shebeen Beer Tasting. Shebeen is a Connecticut brewer out of Wolcott, CT. Their beer is really unique and we are so excited to hear your thoughts about their varities. They have a "connoli" beer that really has to be tasted to be belived. The tasting is free to the public.

Tuesday, February 26th, 5:30pm-That Book Club Meetup. This month we are discussing Jodi Picolt's "Small Great Things". We ask that people bring a snack to share and their honest opinion. Please register for this free event so we know how many people to expect.

Saturday, March 9th, 2:00pm- Jamie L. B. Deenihan "When Grandma Gives You a Lemon Tree". Debut children's author, Jamie Deeniham, has all kinds of fun planned for the kiddos including a reading, stickers, and signing. There will be light refreshments served. Please register for this free event.

Last weekend we held our first ever Trivia Night. I can't tell you who had more fun; Belle and I, or the contestants. Going forward we are going to flop between Friday and Saturday nights. We are open til 10(ish) both nights so we wanted to see which one people prefer. In March our Trivia Night theme will be "Alcohol:. Get ready to test your knowledge (or laugh about our lack of knowledge). We are also hosting a stand-up comedian just prior to the Trivia Night. March's Trivia Night will be held on Friday March 15th at 7:30pm. Please register your team in advance.

Books we are really excited about:

Marlon James newest release, Black Leopard, Red Wolf, is the start to a fantastical saga! This could stand on it's own, and I am so glad it doesn't have to. This is set in a fantasy version of Africa and is deeply rooted in African mythology, complete with vampires, witches, necromancers, shape-shifters and double-crossing ex-boyfriends while on a mercenary job. Need I say more?

If you enjoyed a flawed protagonist, Alison is exactly what you need. I couldn't help but relate to her. Blood Orange is proof that appearances are deceiving. This book is cleaverly plotted psychological suspense that is very well written. You will not want to put this book down.

Newly Released Paperbacks:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lisa Genova's latest release, Every Note Played, explores forgiveness and redemption in an egocentric musician diagnosed with ALS. Genova writes the human medical drama so well. This will be a lesson for anyone who doesn't know ALS and a stinging reminder for those of us that do.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you recognize this face? I did but I had no idea who she was. The Girl on the Velvet Swing is a true story that reads like fiction. Seriously, how could one girl’s life be so glamorous and scandalous? Evelyn stands out to me as one of the most innocent, and gullible, people in history. I would recommend this for readers who enjoy history and/or true crime books.
