This month, I drove to the coast and found a world of musical delights at the Cafe Mundo.
The venue offers a funky, artistically pleasing feel and great food, but what makes the Cafe Mundo so special are the people.
My friend, Sunny Golden, is the director of catering for the Hallmark Resort in Newport, Oregon. She has raved about the Cafe Mundo for months and has been asking me to make the three hour drive out to the coast. I finally got my act together and made it out for the open mic. It was an amazing night.
The evening is organized by local singer songwriter, Saundra Shreve and features many local musicians.
On this evening, there were many travelers, myself included. Two fellows were passing through from Montana. Another player I met had moved to Newport from Arkansas a few weeks ago. The Cafe Mundo, or the World Cafe, is a world of musical delights each and every Thursday night and many other nights each month.
