7 Days Remain!!!

IMG_679513463573072Seven days remain until the end of my Kickstarter Campaign!!  Although we are only 50% funded, I believe that the number seven will bring us good luck and good fortune today and till the rest of the campaign!  I remain hopeful and positive that more supporters will come through and The Brass Lamp’s journey will stay on schedule!!!

On Tuesday I finally signed the lease to a 4,000 sq. ft. space that was used as office space for 50+ years, and will soon be resurrected into THE brilliant book bar on the Promenade in the thriving city of Downtown Long Beach!

It was very emotional for me to finally get my key to the place that I have worked so hard for in the past 16 months!  There were tremendous hurdles in the way, but none too big to overcome with relentless perseverance and a great deal of faith.

IMG_679655383760763I’m especially delighted right now because The Brass Lamp will be teaming up with OPEN, a charming neighborhood bookstore!  In 2012, OPEN sadly closed it’s doors on November 15th leaving many regulars grieved and bookstoreless.  But, exactly two years later, OPEN has announced it’s re-opening within the brick walls of my book bar!!!  Much like a marriage celebration, we are taking something old and something new, and making something extraordinary!!!!

The city is buzzing and this bar is being called the most anticipated bar in Long Beach!!! THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU who have made such generous pledges, and especially believed in this idea and continuously spread the work and share the posts!!!

Please rally with us and Let’s Light Up The Brass Lamp!!
