E-DEMOCRACY | Can you take some time to visit the Blue Moon?

Hi everyone–

I heard from Lisa, the owner of the Blue Moon Cafe on 39th and Lake that the cafe was broken into last night and money was stolen.  I know that they are always struggling a bit to make ends meet, so this is hard for them.  Lisa put out a request for people in the neighborhood to stop by  and buy a little something… they need the business right now.  If you can, she’d sure appreciate it!

We live 3 blocks from the Blue Moon, and love hanging out there– it has such a cozy, homey vibe.  It’s hard to believe that it’s been in the neighborhood for 18 years already, but I know this because it opened just about the time my youngest was born, and he’ll be 18 very soon.  I used to bring him in in his baby carrier when he was tiny, and we’d hang out there while his brother and sister were in pre-school.  He’s pretty much grown up with the Blue Moon!

I know you are all such great supporters of the Longfellow neighborhood… just thought I’d put this info out for you.  I”d hate to see this little cafe go away!

So sorry to hear about the break in.
Thanks for the post, Theresa.
Will be visiting Blue Moon today as a sign of support!

That’s awful! I’m heading out of town today but will make a note to visit next week. It’s NaNoWriMo month and they usually have write-ins there – hopefully they do this year as well. I remember it being fairly crowded then, which should help. It’s a great little cafe!
