Did Someone Say September?

Posted by Derek J. DeSantis (Creator)

Hi Everyone!

We've got many things to update you on.

Cafe Progress

We're inching closer and closer towards opening. Unfortunately we are two weeks behind schedule, so our contractor's new target date is to finish construction by August 31st. What does this mean? Well, we won't be opening in the month of August like we hoped. But, it's looking promising that we will open doors, at least for our soft opening, within the first week of September.

 Beer & Wine

There's a good chance that we'll open doors without our beer & wine license. We're still waiting on the city to complete their review process before the license can be issued by the state of California.  We're a bit bummed by this but we know everyone will still have a great time at the cafe enjoying the many other food and drinks that we'll offer. And we'll have something to look forward to and an excuse to throw another party to celebrate when we do get the license.


We placed our t-shirt and tote bag orders this week - thank you to everyone who completed the survey to let us know what colors you wanted. For local pickups, all merchandise items will be ready to hand out whenever you visit the cafe after we're open.

 Other Rewards

For those of you who chose a reward that includes time at the cafe with Areg & Derek or with your gaming group, we will begin reaching out to you to schedule as soon as we have a more firm opening date in place. 


We'll be shipping rewards to anyone who paid for shipping as soon as our t-shirt order comes in.

 That's all we've got for now. As always, please continue to tell your friends and family about us! We look forward to seeing you in the cafe soon.
