On March 6, with an offer on the table, along with three different leases, our landlord suffered a major stroke. Due to his ongoing and critical medical issues, lease negotiations have now come to an end.

End Result: Atlas Waterfront Cafe & Gathering Room is effectively closed as we prepare for an April 27th onsite auction and final departure.

Our plan is to exit this amazing facility on April 30th and take some time off before making a decision about what will fill our days. We will, of course, continue to volunteer some time caring for the Historic Water Street Native Prairie Restoration project and the Kiwanis Little Free Library garden. And, yes, we will forever dance!

In the meantime, you can find us at Atlas from 9a to 3p every day through the end of April. Please stop by when you're in the neighborhood as we share coffee, hugs, stories and more. It has been an amazing 15 year run and we could not have done this without you … nor would we have wanted to!

Thanks for the memories. More importantly, thank you for your continuing unconditional love and friendship!
