Café Campesino Presents…Movie Night – Join us Thursday, September 10 for a free screening of Beautiful Girls. Timothy Hutton and Uma Thurman head an all-star cast in this poignant drama that confronts the mens’ struggles to connect with the women who affect their decisions, dreams, and desires. Keep an eye out for a young Natalie Portman in a role that is considered by many to be her best. The movie starts at 8pm. Doors open at 7:30.

CRS project in Nicaragua – Bill and Tripp are currently in Nicaragua as participating delegates in the ongoing and far reaching CRS CAFE Livelihoods project. This weeklong visit is business-centered as they are working to add structure and knowledge to the day-to-day activities required for the international trade of coffee.

Tea Class – On the morning of Saturday, September 19th, our friend, neighbor, and tea afficionado Jim Foglio will be demonstrating brewing techniques and flavor profiling for some of his favorite teas in the cafe. This free class begins at 9:30am. All are invited although space is limited. Please RSVP our cafe or office if you plan to attend.

Turkish coffee class – On the morning of Saturday, September 26th, Burt Carter, coffee buff and longtime customer, will lead a Turkish coffee class at the cafe to share and inform about the art and taste of Turkish coffee. This free class begins at 9:30am. All are invited although space is limited. Please RSVP our cafe or office if you plan to attend.

Rylander Theater – On Saturday, September 12th, the Golden Dragon Acrobats, a company of 21 Chinese acrobats, are returning by popular demand to the stage of the historic Rylander Theater in downtown Americus for two performances, a 2pm matinee and a 7pm evening show. Tickets available now at the box office and online

Taste of Sumter – Thursday afternoon and evening, September 24th, brings another of our favorite tasty events. Taste of Sumter is a street festival that gives local businesses the chance to showcase their favorite foods and beverages to a hungry crowd. Thousands will attend. We hope to see you there.

Field of Greens []– October 4th – We enjoyed last year’s event so much, we’re headed back to Whippoorwill Hollow Organic Farm in Walnut Grove, GA to serve some more fair trade, organic coffee and learn from the wealth of info that assembles for this event. (The food is pretty good too!) Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Georgia’s local organic farming community and Slow Food Atlanta.

Return to Eden []– A new marketing campaign by this natural foods store in Atlanta has resulted in full-on advertisement on a city MARTA bus. See below. Do you see our logo? We got bus-ted! Thanks, Return to Eden, for your efforts and for including us in them.
