As of Friday August 21: – Ron made his first espresso; – we had the Artword baby grand piano moved from Toronto; – Ross Johnson tuned the piano on Wednesday and it’s ready to go; – the liquor licence arrived; – Bruce MacArthur made eight beautiful circular tops for the tables; – Judith has almost finished painting the tops and Ron varnishing them; – Gord Odegaard has rigged up elegant LED lighting over the bar. 
Richard Chamberlain and Sepp Sipila played some wonderful jazz tonight, just to try things out. Jennifer Lockman will test the piano tomorrow (Saturday the 22nd).

Drop by on the James North Arts Crawl Aug 14. We’ll be open to show you around. Not our official opening yet, since there are still a few things to be finished.
There will be music —  jazz guitar with Seppo Sipila and others, as well as the Gunter Ott Blues Band and some projections by Judith Sandiford.
