      Thanks, Guy. We weren’t sure that it was OK to publicize (the Facebook invite came to our personal account, not biz account) but we did get the clearance to cover it! – TR

    The open house at Caffe Fiore was a massive disappointment. It was just a bunch of hipsters standing around and drinking beer. We didn’t feel welcome at all. Nobody was there to greet us when we walked in, and the weirdest part? No coffee! Not cool.

      We dropped by too. Didn’t know that coffee wasn’t available or would have included that – in retrospect it appears to have been just a “drop in and look around” opportunity. – TR

    The cafe sounds like a great addition to the neighborhood.

Sorry, comment time is over.
