The Golden Thyme Coffee Café and the Saint Paul Almanac are pleased to announce the Winter 2013-2014 Season of the "Soul Sounds Open Mic," hosted by Tish Jones! The "Soul Sounds Open Mic" series is held every Thursday, with a special pre-performance writing workshop on the first Thursday of each month. The event takes place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Golden Thyme Coffee Café at 921 Selby Avenue (corner of North Milton Street) in Saint Paul. All ages are welcome, and there is no cover charge. Every first Thursday, a writing workshop will be held an hour before the open mic begins, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The Saint Paul Almanac has begun the process of looking for photos and artwork for the 2014 edition! Deadline for photos/artwork is the end of March 2013. We are looking for photos of: original/fresh/new views of old parts of the Saint Paul landscape (eg. State Capitol, bridges, landmarks, etc) • Saint Paul festivals and events (Cinco de Mayo, Grand Old Day, Winter Carnival, flower shows, etc) • Saint Paul parks, zoos, wildlife, nature, seasons, weather, etc. • Saint Paul places (bars, restaurants, museums, art galleries, etc.) • Saint Paul people doing what they do (the Saint Paul Almanac is a diverse project that intentionally seeks out and includes all cultures that live in the city, so be aware that people submissions depicting only white people are less likely to be included).
