Notes from the Island — Sept. 15

Posted September 15, 2022 at 8:15 am by

  • After 12 years in busi­ness, the end of the cur­rent iter­a­tion of The Bean is almost here. Accord­ing to a Face­book post by own­er Eric Bienen­stock, The Bean’s last day in busi­ness is tomor­row. In the post Eric says that “the cafe is for sale, and I am in dis­cus­sions with an inter­est­ed par­ty. My hope is that a new own­er will bring the ener­gy, enthu­si­asm and pas­sion that I arrived with so many years ago and return the cafe to its for­mer great­ness.” He also says that “it has been my great hon­or to serve our com­mu­ni­ty these last twelve years, and I will be for­ev­er grate­ful for the tremen­dous sup­port we have been shown.”
