Hello Friends of Bazaar Cafe!

Les and Makiko are retiring from Bazaar after twenty years! 

For a very long time they have wanted to take a trip to Paris, but have lacked the funds and time to make it happen. They will now have the time and, if we make our goal, the money to make this dream a reality.  Please show Les and Makiko how much we have appreciated them and all they have done to make Bazaar the one-of-a-kind place it has been for two decades.  Give generously!

There will be a goodbye party this Saturday, August 11, from 6 pm to midnight at the cafe and we will present them with the gift then.  

Please share the this Go Fund Me link with anyone you think might want to contribute.  Time is short!

We finally made it to Paris! As you can imagine, it was a memorable trip. We concentrated our time in galleries and museums, (except we skipped Lourve (yuck)), Jeu de Paume, Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Musee d’Orsay (twice), Centre Pompidou (twice), Foundation Louis Vitton and Henri Cartier Bresson Foundation, Dali Museum and Musee de Montmartre, where Renoir had a little garden and vineyard which the brochure said “the most expensive and bad wine in France”. We saw a lot , walked a lot, ate & drank a lot of wine with every lunch, dinner and sometimes with breakfast. We even managed a weekend trip to Burgundy. It was a nice break from busy Paris. The farmer’s market in Paris was big, but two Farmers Market in Burgundy were huge. I had the best croissant amande there.

Thanks to all of you who made this trip possible, this is the treasure we’ll carry for the rest of our lives.

But, you know, after three weeks of an incredible trip, we’re happy to find our own bed.

We're off to Paris soon...finally! As many of you know, we had intended to go in mid-January but unfortunately Makiko's mom's death and other less serious but annoying exigencies precluded our going until the next couple of weeks.

So, we will depart March 8th and return March 28th, with three nights in a village in Burgundy through the generosity of one of you, who will remain unnamed.

And so, it is with great gratitude to all of you for this amazing gift and thoughtfulness that we start our journey soon! We will send updates from The City of Light!
