Push Play Live Wire
Saturday April 12, 2008
Wow, it's been such a journey. For those of you who have not heard, Java Dave's Push Play Cafe has been sold. Our fate is in the hands of a mainstream coffee co. (Corporate America, here we come!), though we cannot disclose who just yet. We tried very hard to survive in the world of Starbucks Caramel Macchiatos and Frappuccinos, but in the end, we never quite made it.
Now, that is not to say that we failed. This coffee shop has done exactly what it was supposed to--it brought people together. For 14 months we have had the priveledge of providing a place where all members of the community could come together, where people came together. Bible studies, first dates, comedy nights, study groups, rock and roll, hip hop, open mics, art shows, jam bands, "Dog Day Sundays"... we've had it all. What more could we ask for? You have all allowed us to be a part of your lives, and we have been happy to have you as part of ours.
When I came in to interview with Michael, I knew this was a place where I wanted to be. His enthusiasm for the arts, for people, for life, is what attracted me to Push Play Cafe. I have been so lucky to work with people on such an intimate level, and to be able to walk away with more friends I than I ever could have imagined. I wish all of you the best of luck in the future, and I hope that you continue to grow within these four walls. It won't be the same, but if there is one thing I learned here it's that life is what you make of it.
So let us all make the best of this "new chapter" (as Michael would say) and celebrate tonight with all of the love and energy that's been put into this cafe over the past 14 months.
Goodbye Push Play fans, we hope to see you all tonight :)
