café mamá - rhythm, art and tango in the excelsior
(good mochas too)
we first met the café mamá people at the excelsior street fair in fall 2004.  the café has been open since may 2004 and has been steadily increasing its art, music and cultural offerings ever since.  they also make a fine mocha, pretty salads, and yummy flan.

I have to admit that we also love café mamá because they put up a show of my photos (along with those of another neighborhood photographer, michael mccauslin) and gave a lovely party with music and food.  

here are a few shots of the art on the walls the night of our party, one   two   three   and some friends looking at the pictures.  

there was live music at the party - marcelo brought a four-piece group that swung the place all evening with latin grooves.  there were some energetic dancers, one   two   three.  

as we were leaving, a very polite dog who had waited patiently on the sidewalk all evening was really glad to see us.
