Greetings friends of the Emporium and the Underdog!! Welcome once again to another addition of our very special monthly e-newsletter.

As election season, autumn, and 2008 approach their end, I implore you all to take a moment to reflect upon the wonderful place the Underdog Cafe has in all of our hearts. This may seem a bit non-sequitur-y to you. You might be right. Come to our post-election party on Wednesday (see calendar below for details) and decide for yourself!

In the meantime, or after the fact, check out our web site updates, art show, and other events in this lovely colorfully-foliaged November.


New videos of Carl Schumacher, George Bieri, and friends performing at a wine-tasting in May.
(Coming soon: videos of Home Inc.’s fundraiser and our Halloween party!)

The poll from last month is still up and waiting for you to fill it out!
