if you want to...

...you can purchase either the old Java Joint or the old Firehouse Grill (most recently Harbor House) and let me turn it into the coolest coffee shop/local artist gallery/and live music venue that 39th has ever seen. I think I would call it "Cup of Joe" with the tagline "coffee, art, music; warmth, meaning, and community." You could earn "cups" towards free wi-fi after so many drink purchases. Think about it...

Student ID discounts.
Open mic-night.
Locally roasted coffee beans.
Bomb BLT's.


Think about it. Let me know. I'm ready when you are.

i definitely have a coffee shop/bookstore/community center idea that i wrote years ago in an old journal somewhere... i think this is a genius plan!

by the way, did java joint go out of business and i didn't know it?

I'm going to try to find a way to put this under our Christmas tree.

i think this is one of your best ideas...it's like bringing the paseo to bethany. if i had a million dollars i would invest in you without question.

If I bake pies, will you sell them in your shop?

Hey! Julie and I have talked about buying the Java Joint and doing something very fun with it. Wish I had the money to do that. Would be very fun! And...I'd hire all my favorite peeps to work there. To dream...
