A couple of years ago we put a lot of thought and effort into opening up a Rabbit Room Coffee Tavern & Bookstore just south of town in a place called Lenox Village. But after a lot of hand-wringing and number-crunching we finally came to the conclusion that it wasn’t the right time, though we were pretty sure it was the right place. So we put the idea aside and went on about our business of writing books, making music, and mooting hutches. Looking back on the idea now, I think we realize that it would have required a lot more work than we wanted to devote to it. That little shop would have taken the place of Fiddler’s Green, and The Monster in the Hollows, and who knows what else. We mourned the dream a little but I think we quickly recognized the dream for what it was.
It’s funny how things come back around though, isn’t it? In the time since, our good friend Winn Elliot has taken over the Edgehill Cafe and turned it into a thriving coffeehouse, and just this past Saturday he and his wife opened up a brand new cafe in Lenox Village as we’d so nearly done two years ago. Right away they asked the Rabbit Room to be a part of the new shop. We were happy to oblige and can now announce that Rabbit Room books, music, and mugs are on sale at the Edgehill Cafe at Lenox Village.
To celebrate the opening, we’d like to invite folks to come hang out this Friday evening around 6pm. We don’t have anything special planned, but when did good fellowship ever need a plan? Come just to say hello. Sit for a spell and drink some great coffee, or tea, or hot chocolate. Make a new friend. Visit with old ones. Pull up a seat by the fireplace and read a good book. It’ll be a mini-moot of sorts. We hope to see you there.
