It is the end of May and time for some catch up blogging. Let's start with the weather: don't let it get you down or prevent you from visiting us at Papa Robbs. This time of year we mostly get a series of rain showers that do not last long or simply come and go. We stay open (more on this) our great staff are full of sunny smiles!

We did have a serious problem two weeks ago with a heavy wind shear that destroyed our tent shelter and 90% of umbrellas, caused some flooding and forced us to close. But we re-opened the next day on time.

Some ideas work and others do not no matter how hard you wish and work. Tuesday Blue Grass Music jam sessions are one of those. Simply, no one came to play - no one. So, they have been cancelled & we will work on other ideas - many from you.

The most important aspect of events at Papa Robbs is inclusion; involvement of our customers. Open Mic, Festival Fridays, Latino Festival are examples, so look for more in the future. We'll keep you posted.

We have added some new food trucks: Vito's Pizza, KO, TJ's Burger Boogie, but sadly we have lost our friends, the Pig & Cow for awhile. Some changes to their business structure, upgrades, etc have sidelined them as these changes are made.

Some quick notes to close:  The Two Chicks & a Truck food truck now offer a Kids Eat Free program on Mondays. A special kid's menu & a free kids meal with purchase of an adult meal.  Yes we still do parties, but the calendar fills fast so PLEASE try to plan ahead and reserve space early.  Again, gift certificates are available, plus we now have our new tee shirts in stock for sale!!!

Hello again. We have some news so let's get to it. You may have hear that last Saturday, May 10 we had a serious problem. Sort of a MINI  TWISTER .  It may not have been a touchdown tornado, but winds were over 50 mph & we lost 90% of our umbrellas, our new pop up tent shelter, some flooding & other  minor damage. We were forced to close for the night & were actually buying  new umbrellas that night. Happy to report that no one was injured & we were back open Sunday. Actually we were very lucky.

Our Food Truck schedule is set -- a  Food Truck EVERY night. Schedule on our website - just click on events - but remember that things can change so check our Facebook often

Special nights we are working on: Motorcycle Mondays off to a slow start, but we expect it to grow. Bike displays, DJ & Live Music are all planned once we see a reasonable turn out, plus a Food Truck every Monday. 

We are attempting a blue grass music jam session on Tuesdays. These are tough to do, so we will see what happens. Note please there is NO DANCE. Just a place for some picking & grinning.

Festival Fridays are starting to pick up again. Youth clowns coming, plus the Firetruck & some exciting themes. Drum Circle, Motorsports, Poetry Night, some dance exhibitions, a Beach Part & other unique street performers. Join us every Friday - you never know what might happen. Again, our Facebook postings will help keep you up to date.

What Latin Festival? you have asked. Well, we have a great hispanic food truck every Sunday - Tacos Morelia - & they (and us) are determined to provide more than just very good food. Music, face painting & more to begin on May 25, but you may be surprised  on any Sunday.

A quick reminder that we do offer Gift Certificates -- tee shirts should arrive soon & of course we are ALWAYS looking for more street performers1

See you soon.
