Storytime and African drumming for kids
Thanks for the heads up, Maylorie!
First I would like to thank all of you who have been so supportive of our new child friendly cafe. We are Glo Loca Cafe and Bistro located at 7901 NE Glisan and have been open just about 6 months. Glo Loca stands for "Global Local" which is the cafe's theme.
In addition to a child play area, we have on-going events for children. Our next special guest is Habiba, she is a professional African Story Teller of children's stories. She will be at the cafe Tuesday June 13th at 4pm.
Each month on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 4pm we have a special guest that comes to do stories for children. These are free events.
We also offer African drumming for children on Mondays at 4pm. Bara Mboup is a professional Senegalese drummer, has toured all over the world and been teaching for over 15 years. He is currently on tour and will be back at the cafe teaching Monday June 19th at 4pm. He will also have a class June 26th and July 3rd, and then will be back in the fall for more classes. His classes for children are $7 and drums are provided.
If you would like to see more please check out our website at gloloca.com. I still have some editing and menu updates to do on the site, but you can see photos and get a general idea about us.
