Women’s Care Days in the Cafe
Every 1st Friday of the month…
Once a month we open our Cafe space to women-identified people and children only in an ongoing effort to keep our space safe for everyone. Anyone who identifies as a woman including trans women (and children) are given priority on these days by creating a space solely for nurturing women, their voices, and some relaxing pampering. You’re welcome to join us in the space or take a hospitality lunch to-go for male identifying folks or if you’re just on the go. Join us each 1st Friday for a relaxing day of massages, manicures and other treats!
