Update: Paris cancelled.... Sad seems they scheduled "too many food events"... is there such a thing??? LOL! Its ok tho, cuz I just got a reservation for 11 for tuesday and then last night they called and said add 3 more the the group! Smiling These are the towns "Womens Club" and the 'talkers of the town' and the well to do! So after they have been here word will definitely be out..... 'locally' anyway...

I'm also catering a breakfast (I don't remember if i already told you that), 1 block up the street for my bank! 

My realtor is coming and bringing 8 people! I have booked a Christmas Dinner for 24, and I got a call to do a bid for a thanksgiving dinner for 24-30 people in Nov!

These are GREAT and definitely help, but I still need the 'day to day' business! 

Well, the now infamous.... Paris group... that cancelled...actually called and ordered 'to go' lunch today!! 

Awesome!! 

Again I want to thank you guys for all your encouragement!

Here's your next step, Sunshine. There's a little art gallery downtown here. The owner displays and sells her paintings, plus works by other locals, and they meet once a month to have fun together, and of course talk and EAT.

Their latest idea is to have a reading time of poetry and short stories. There are quite a few people in town who are excited about this, and planning to share their favorites next Monday night at the first reading. Light refreshments will be served.

If you could work up some event like this, it would be a great way to draw new people to your tea room, but rather than giving free refreshments, let them order from your tea menu, and pay you. Something as civilized as poetry goes real well with something as civilized as tea!

Just be warned with French people they tend to rip apart say crossants and then dip them in their coffee or hot chocolate - this is tasty but makes a huge mess everywhere, id be carefull what table cloths you use

I don't know about a huge mess, but yes, they do dunk things in their tea and coffee. They also prefer warmed milk (or frothed milk) with their coffee. We have a milk warmer/frother in place just for this reason.
