Coincidentally, both of the newspapers from the area where Libby and I grew up called last week to interview us about the cafe. The Bloomington Pantagraph was the first article to make it to print, and while brief they did include lots of great photos of the cafe in action. The Pantagraph article can be found here (link fixed — sorry about that!):
The Peoria Journal Star article came a couple of days later. That one tells a little more about our backstory and history of how the cafe came to be. The PJ Star article can be found here:
It is such a cool thing to be printed in the papers that you read while growing up, and that your family and friends still all read today. Thanks to those articles, we were able to reconnect with quite a few folks we had lost touch with. Thanks to all of you who might have done a little “prodding” to get the papers to call — we appreciate it!
