Vella Cafe Closing Aug. 23

vellacafelogo.jpgVella Cafe, the popular brunch and lunch place under the Western Blue Line stop, is closing on Sunday, August 23.

There will be no special event to mark Vella's closing, although Voden said, "we will do one last pizza supper on August 14. We'll be sending out an announcement to people on our email list."

A Garden Party at Rick Bayless' House
