Welcome to 20Heaven

May your year be absolutely fabulous! May it be filled with love and happiness and lots and lots and lots of money and other lekker stuff that money can’t buy! Let someone else (like the bank manager) worry about the stresses for a while, nurture your love, your family and remember above all else………………….wear sunscreen J

Welcome back to everybody, I hope you had an wonderful relaxed holiday and festive season. I hope Christmas was delicious and New Year was a party of note.

Old year’s eve is a really good time to reflect on the year just passed and ponder the year going forward. What have you decided to change? I don’t make resolutions. I just make decisions to do things differently, that way when nothing changes apart from the date, I don’t feel like I have let myself down………….I have obviously re-thought the whole thing through again and my solution was…………..why fix something that ain’t broke!! Okay, not really, but you know what I mean!

I was sitting at the computer towards the end of December with a calendar in my left hand pondering the happenings @Indulgence Café for the year 2011 and I have to say we have a pretty full line up.

I am going to cram as much as possible into this year so prepare to be bombarded with social engagements at Indulgence Café this fabulous year 2011! So I have almost mapped the year out already, I know when every Author Talk is, just not who every author is. I know when Mom’s day and Dad’s day are. The Jewish Holidays, the Christian Holidays and a huge amount of public holidays! Rest assured that something will happen at THIS coffee shop every public holiday this year! No, that is a lie, the only things that will happen over the Easter and Christmas holidays is that the shop will slumber through them but as for the rest…………………party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So after all that WHAT is happening @Indulgence in January 2011???

Our new menu is up and out already, come on in and try out some of the new items on the menu……. There is an entire section dedicated to crumpets, another to French toast and another to those Pint Sized people in your lives! Plus a new salad or two and even if an old favourite of yours is no longer on the menu…………….we will still make it for you…………all you have to do is ask!

We don’t usually entertain authors in January, however….. place drum roll here…. I have stalked Arthur Goldstuck relentlessly and he has agreed to do an extra special Author Talk @Indulgence on the 11th of January @ 15h00. This is a Tuesday folks, so please take note of that and try not to turn up on the Saturday following as neither Arthur nor I will be here! Who is Arthur Goldstuck you are wondering? Well carry on reading and I will tell you…………………….

 

Arthur Goldstuck

 

Arthur is an award-winning writer, analyst and commentator on Internet, mobile and business and consumer technologies. He is editor and columnist for a number of publications, and heads the World Wide Worx research organization, leading groundbreaking research into how hi-tech change is affecting businesses large and small.

Arthur is author of 18 books, including South Africa’s best-selling IT book yet, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Internet”.

Through Penguin Books, he has published six books on urban legends. The most recent, “The Burglar in the Bin-Bag”, appeared in 2010. It follows “The Ghost That Closed Down the Town”, published in 2006.

As for February and March 2011 we have Michael Bowery returning to speak @Indulgence again with his memoirs and Caroline Addenbrooke with her first published novel, The Gates of Hell. Even April already has an author lined up but I don’t want to overwhelm you with information or spoil you too much so early in the year so I will keep that information on ice till next month!

I have not lined anything else up for January 2011 as I will be away from the 12th to the 31st. Which does mean that you will not be able to get hold of me. However both Lollipops Catering and Indulgence Coffee Café will  continue to function none the less. Gladys, Fortune and the rest of the team will take care of anything you may need and if you have the need to get hold of me, please feel free to email me. I will be able to pick up my emails, even if I am running about 8 hours behind youJ

There are some delicious events packed into the month of romance, February 2011 for you

We are having our 3rd kinks flea market……..this is only suitable for the more risqué of you, who are so inclined to come and have a look. The event is not  open to anyone under the age of 18, so sorry no kids! Please contact Cass for more information on  cassie.kelly@gmail.com

Author Talk is on the 12th of Feb. This is the month when we hand over all the books we have collected to Animals In Distress and start collecting all over again! So please remember to bring along your books and any food or animal friendly stuff that is still lurking around the house. By the way, thanks for everyone who came to Amiga’s 5th birthday party, she was spoiled rotten by all of you and we raised with your help R575 for Animals in Distress. I am very chuffed, so thanks very much! Please give yourselves a pat on the back!

Pre-valentines breakfast/lunch haven’t actually decided which one to do………….would you like to let me know your preferences?  Also let me know if you would prefer a set menu or to eat off the menu! (on the Sunday 13th Feb 2011)

Valentines quickie breakfast  on the Monday 14th Feb 2011……………early Monday morning before work pop into Indulgence for a quickie………….breakfast that is, we will open early so you can be at work on time, or maybe just a teeny weensy bit late!
