Hi everybody- Letizia's closes at 5pm Thursday-Sunday for the duration of the winter. I have protested, but they said there wasn't enough business to keep it open. So, do we have any other KIP venue ideas?

Trope said...

What?!? No more Letizia's? Let's hie over to the Mercury Cafe, they were so good to us in the past, and had those comfy couches. Plus, they found, recognized, and held onto my only copy of the DFS pattern when I accidentally left it there one night. They are truly knitter-friendly.

Of course, I don't know how much weight this suggestion should hold, since I'm lucky if I make it only once a month now. But keep it on the list, eh?

Mercury Cafe sounds good to me!

Wow! That's surprising. I enjoyed going to the Mercury, too -- nice and laid back. I'm all for it (at least until my dream perfect spot [e.g. lots of parking, free pizza for knitters] opens on the North Side! ;-0) Hopefully those who take public trans. can still get there fairly easily?

I would love to humbly extend a personal invitation to you all to come to the Loopy show! It should be FUN! I am going to speak about yarn substitution and show my WPI rulers. Now that's show biz...

Looking forward to seeing you! I miss everybody. My hours on the day job are still late...

[OMG! I can't believe Letizia's is closing so early? Does the Wine bar shut down too? Weird. I vote for the Mercury, too. Lots of room...]
