It’s not pink, it’s raspberry

The blog stopped by The Shop (924 S. Perry) this morning to inspect the rumored pink garage doors. Justin White, one of the new owners, said they were going for more of a raspberry color but it turned out perhaps just a little pink.

There's much more seating than there used to be, including big armchairs and comfy couches, and also a small electrical fireplace.

The coffee roaster is gone and that has made room for a bigger counter which now features cupcakes, Brain Freeze Ice Cream and, drum roll please, crepes.

“I don't start the crepes until 9 o'clock,” said White, adding that current crepe fillings include banana and strawberry.

The coffee remains Anvil Brand. Devoted Shop goers can look forward to a soon to be announced live music line up.

Casper Fry opens in late May

Just in case you missed it in today's paper, here's a  link to a story about Casper Fry - the restaurant opening next to Title Nine at 928 S. Perry Street. It's the people behind Madeleine's downtown that are opening the eatery.

The Shop reopens Thursday morning

This just in: The Shop, located at 924 S. Perry St., will be open again Thursday morning. New owners Justin White and Phil Ward will continue to serve Anvil Coffee, and gradually add to the menu.
Ward said they will bring in Brain Freeze ice cream - another local favorite - as well as cupcakes and crepes.
Hours will be from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., daily.
“Come summer, we will be open longer,” said Ward. “And we will have live music.”
And yes, the summer movies will be back.

The Shop is getting a facelift

Hold the caffeine panic: the blog just got off the phone with new Shop owner, Justin White, who assures fans of the coffee house located at 924 S. Perry Street, that the place will reopen as soon as possible.

White is painting and taking care of some other maintenance issues, and plans to reopen with a larger menu and live music.

Check The Voices section on Thursday for an update on Casper Fry - the restaurant opening at 928 S. Perry St. right nextdoor to Title Nine.

The Shop’s movie schedule is out

First free outdoor movie is on July 23 and it's Big Trouble in Little China with Kurt Russell and Kim Cattrall, from 1986.
There's a movie every Saturday through August 27, when this year's series coludes with Rocky (1976)

The outdoor movies at The Shop feature a great atmosphere, popcorn, lattes and family fun. Bring your own chair and set up early. Movies are shown on the side of the old Altamont Pharmacy and seating is first come first serve in the parking lot of The Shop, 924 S. Perry Street.

South Perry is open for business

So it wasn't the best day to have a blog party here at the Perry Street Cafe, but I totally understand why my planned visitors chose to stay home.
The good news is that everyone here is open for business - they are all out shoveling and clearing snow and the parking lots are clear. Wrapping up for the day here on South Perry.

Bonus movie night

School is back in session and the weather is getting cooler, but there is still a chance to enjoy a summer tradition in the South Perry Neighborhood.

The Spokane Buddhist Temple will present one last movie at the Shop, 924 S. Perry, Saturday at dusk.

The movie, “Secondhand Lions,” stars Haley Joel Osment, Kyra Sedgwick, Michael Caine and Robert Duvall.

Everyone should bring their own blankets, coats and chairs for the movie, which is rated PG.

For more information, call the temple office at (509) 534-7954.
