Fair on the Square!

This weekend. Saturday 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday 12 Pm to 5 pm. Come to the square for food, music, arts and crafts. Of course we will be open both days with all of our great food and drinks. We'll also have T-shirts available for the first time.

Fair on the Square is an annual fundraising event for charity first held in 1976 in celebration of the nation’s Bicentennial. Coordinated and sponsored by the town’s Twentieth Century Club. Offering more than 180 booths filled with crafts, foods and games.

All profits from the “Fair” are funneled back to the community and are used to support education, community life, environment and art projects.

New hours and a coffee sale

We have decide to change our weekday hours a little. Monday through Thursday we will be closing at 5 Pm instead of 7. We just weren't getting enough business after 5 due to the rest of the square being closed. This gives us more time to be with our family and to prepare for the nest day. Thanks for your understanding. Now having said that, we WILL be staying open late on Thursdays in June and July for the Sunset on the Square Summer Concert Series.

Also this week, we have a special on our 'house coffee'. $2.00 off a pound of our Cafe' Las Flores, straight from the estate, Nicaraguan whole bean. We will be glad to grind it for your particular brewing method. You can read more about the coffee and estate here. You're welcome to try a sample before you buy too - just ask! - Walt

Website additions and more music!

We have added two new features to our website. First an event calendar (click on "Upcoming Events" from our main page or click here). There you will be able to check out the music, art and other events coming up. The second feature is a forum where you can discuss topics related to Square Beans, Coffee, Collierville or just about anything. Just click on "Forum" on the main page or here.

On the music scene, we'd like to thank Coley & Marilyn Graves (Wildwood Express) for gracing us with their wonderful music, everyone really enjoyed that and we hope to see them back. Joseph Barrios put on a fine performance on Sunday and hopefully we'll get him and his band to come back as well.

Next up is Billy Willard on Saturday April 26th at 6PM. Billy describes himself as "kind of a folk/rock Christian singer/songwriter". He lists among his influences: Andrew Peterson, Bebo Norman, the late Rich Mullins and Caedmon's Call." We look forward to Billy and hope you will plan to be there!

Live Music Scheduled

Come by the shop Saturday evening from 6 - 8PM and enjoy the music of "Wildwood Express".

Wildwood Express is a husband-wife duo from Bartlett, Tennessee. The old-time mountain and gospel music, along with the instruments they play is what makes this duo so unique. “What is that instrument called,” has been asked of them hundreds of times. They are always happy to explain how they got involved with an old-time instrument called the hammered dulcimer. Also, the clawhammer banjo is another rarely seen old-time instrument. With their Christian faith background, they especially enjoy sharing their talents by singing and playing the old-time gospel songs of yesteryear. They are available as a duo, or with a four or five-piece old-time band. If you would like them at your church, school, civic club or other functions, they can be contacted at:
Coley & Marilyn Graves

Early Closings this Week

Hello out there in Blog Land. Square Beans will be closing early (4PM) on Wednesday, April 9 and Thursday, April 10.

Wednesday we are hosting a Merchant's Association Meeting and on Thursday our daughter, Ellie, is performing in the Wizard of Oz at the Collierville High School DRACO Theatre. We'd love to see you come to support the theatre department at CHS. They always do an awesome job. This is Ellie's first ever performance. She is cast as a munchkin and a flying monkey. I always knew she was destined for greatness! :)

Thanks for everybody's support! Kelli

Final Four!

The Memphis Tigers are in the NCAA Final Four (OK you already knew that). But did you know that we will be watching the game at Square Beans on our flat panel TV? So if you want to get out of the house to watch the game and you'd like to sip on a latte', cappuccino or a delicious Blenz frozen drink while doing so, then join us tomorrow (Saturday April 5th) at 5:00 pm. We'll have plenty of snacks to go around too!

Go Tigers!!
