What can they get you?
Cafe Ollie brings you some of the usual subtle, homey, stimulating comforts - coffee - sandwiches - intriguing and charming staff - and an omnipresent vibe-(like the distant, echoing gregorian chant swirling through a cathedral's arches), -of appreciation for art and music. "50% meat-eater + 50% vegetarian + 50% vegan + 150% delicious"
And it's yet another sprig of vibrancy to sprout in Ypsilanti's Depot Town - oh so recently made just that much more electric by the well received opening of Woodruff's. Just down the street - at 42 Cross Street - stands Ollie's - a new music cafe for the curious, the cultured, the cool and clueless and the meandering iconoclasts.
On Feb 1st - they'll have a commendable launch party of sorts - featuring music from Dan Kroha (of Gories-fame), Hush Arbors, Jason Ajemian and Swimsuit.
Also inhabiting the cafe that night, besides the music and the whir of cappuccino machines, will be a group art show featuring Michigan artists: Matthew Bernick, Thelonious Bone, Spencer Bryant, Robert DiMaria, Tom Hohmann, Gregory McKeighan, Alexander Roskowski and Jeremy Wheeler.
