Cafe 58 Update (10/12)

Hi Soccer fans,

We have an AWESOME update for you.... last week was the best day for the Café 58 that I can ever remember (and I remember a lot of days for a lot of years!!!).  We had record one-day sales, we kept the food hot, the smoothies cold and the lines short; all with the end result that the kids and parents came hungry, left satisfied and had smiles on their faces (which was great considering it was Picture Day).  Lots of people had the breakfast or lunch for their first time at Cafe 58 and they OVERWHELMINGLY said "this is great food - I will definitely be back next week" – well next week is here and we need everyone to come back again this Saturday to keep the community spirit growing!!!

Volunteer news:

I don't normally do it, but I really want to publicly acknowledge and thank a few people who are true "ROCK STARS" as volunteers:  
    1.  the Gentlemen o' Grill, aka "the GOG Squad", (Allan Weaver, Steve Reisig and Steve Orenstein) truly slave over a hot BBQ from 6:30am until 2:00pm, all for the price of a smoothie (or two or three!!!).
    2.  Norah Vera, Amy Menke, Marta Harmon, Jaime Timsit - they help with setup, they help with clean up, they help with taking orders and giving orders, and manage the volunteers inside Café 58.  Each of them has helped out several times this season already, not limiting their help to a 2 hour time slot on a division day.  In fact, this comingSaturday, Oct 14, Marci (the “Café 58 Queen”) and I will not be at the park, so Norah, Amy, Marta, Jaime and Paige Millenbaugh will be running the place – be nice to them and give them a BIG “Thank You” at the windows.

VOLUNTEERS – WE STILL NEED YOU FOR SATURDAY!!! As of this afternoon, we have just 7 of the 38 volunteer slots filled in the afternoon (from 12:55pm through the end of the day) on Saturday.  For some reason, these afternoon slots are very difficult to fill, but PLEASE find a couple of hours of time on Saturday to help us out.  Sign up at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080b4eacaf2da2f85-1014171 for any of the shifts – we really, 
really,really need your help.  If it is your Division Day (08UB and 12UG) then definitely sign up – especially if your team has a game that ends around 12:50pm or starts around 2:00 – we need you / expect you to sign up for those afternoon slots.  If it is not your division day, then don't be shy; take a cue from our Rock Stars listed above, volunteer to help because it's good for the program, it's fun to do, and it's a great role model for your kids!!!
 
Food news:
 
1.  Café 58 First Annual Specialty Sandwich Day – Oct 28 TRI-TIP SANDWICHES – Another new concept that we are trying out this year is Special Days – On Oct 28, we are going to serve Tri-Tip Sandwiches for lunch, slow cooked for hours in smokers.  We’ll make as much tri-tip as we can, but when those sandwiches are gone, they will be gone!!!  Apologies to the vegetarians among us, but we will still have all of the veggie burgers, yummy-cheesey-gooey grilled cheese and other veggie food choices.  More details on the Specials in next week’s Café 58 update!!!
 

2.  Breakfast on Saturday starting at 7:00 am - Almost 200 egg sandwiches were consumed (well, they were sold, and I hope they were consumed) last weekend, and more pancakes than we can count were flapped onto plates with whipped cream, chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles.  Let's keep that momentum going this Saturdayand come by for breakfast before your kid's game.  We'll have the normal tables / chairs / tents set up this week again, so you will have a place to relax and eat (and drink that Groundwork Certified Organic Coffee) before the game without the stampede of people commonly referred to as Picture Day madness.
 
3.  FOURTH ANNUAL COFFEE TASTE CHALLENGE - 
the results are in... wait for it, wait for it, wait for it....As certified by the Public Accounting firm of BPS International (aka, Brew, Pour and Sip), the Groundwork Certified Organic Coffee unanimously won our taste challenge again - not a single person asked for their money back and everyone said that it was better than all of the other coffee that they had that morning.  
 
4.  Team Snacks and Snack Bar Bucks – A lot more people are realizing how convenient it is to buy Snack Bar bucks ($10 gets you $11 of SBB's) and use those for your team's snack.  You save money, you don't have to carry around bags or boxes of drinks or food that some kids like and some don't, the kids can pick what they want, and you support our program - win, win, win, win!!!  Don't just make this an after-thought when the designated snack person forgot to bring something.  Plan on it, pick up those Snack Bar Bucks on Saturday, and bring the team over after the game for snack or breakfast or lunch (or all of the above!!!)
 
Lastly, enjoy your games on Saturday, keep hydrated (it's supposed to be warming up again on Saturday) and let's all have a safe, fair and fun day.  Oh, and if you haven't figured it out yet, please come to Café 58 to support our program.
