Told the leonine exiled contessa,
"If you promise to love me, I will marry above me,
And the greater will cleave to the lesser"

" Jazz isn't dead, it just smells funny"*

A head's up on this week's menu - We have had problems in the past getting nice plump mung sprouts from the produce delivery co. If they don't please, the chili orange cold noodles will be replaced by another noodle salad. Toppings for the pizzettes won't be determined until the last minute. Fontina and Red Onion Jam Panini is a new item. Fans of our red onion pickles will enjoy this. Week 4 of our Whoopie Pie Wednesday experiment brings back one  of the most requested desserts we do, classic pumpkin.
News from the dark side - our Official Source says, 'treasured Opus employee Dan Knishkowy played guitar and sang at the "Cafe Con Leche" open mic in Opus 1 [sic] on Tues. Sept. 18 and is said [even by Larry!] to have stolen the show. Look out for more Opus events this fall, y'all!'   Welcome to the fold, new Official Source.
Last week we saluted Henry as our employee of the week. What a guy.
Last week's personality  of the week, Big Troy from Little Falls, did indeed fix the espresso machine for us. Unfortunately, it broke down again three days later.
Last week's coronations of the week, Madison County Hops Fest King and Queen, took place at the 17th annual fest held in Oneida, NY. A lovely time was had by all attendees.
Last week we shared the secret recipe for Opus Chili. Really.

    :) - Delicious menu spread!
    :( - Espresso machine misbehavior.

    Red Onion Jam?! Yumtown.

    See you this week, Nancy!

    P.S. Jazz never dies.



The work-a-day world takes its toll,
You may gasp for a grasp of the Whole,
To trade virulent clatters, for something that matters,
Put your hands on the shape of a bowl.
