Keeping Our Balance
Luck is a very thin wire between survival and disaster, and not many people can keep their balance on it.
-Hunter S. Thompson
Meriwether (specifically) and Rocheport (generally), finds itself in the midst of a disaster. We are by no means alone in this; there are other communities experiencing worse and more devastating flood water and other businesses unable to do anything but watch the water rise around them as their hard work and sweat equity are put into peril by an uncontrollable event.
Rocheport is open for business and Meriwether Cafe will remain open throughout the active flood and the aftermath. We will, however, need a little strategy to overcome this obstacle. That said, we will be changing our hours to balance our business on the thin wire Hunter S. Thompson wrote about. We will survive, but to guarantee that survival we must mitigate the risk of needing more luck than the universe can provide.
Until the Katy Trail reopens, we will no longer be open Monday and Tuesday.
We, at Meriwether Cafe and Bike Shop, want all of you who are reading this to know that your thoughts, efforts(sandbagging or otherwise volunteering) and patronage prove that we are going to survive as a town and as a business because there are too many of you who care to let either fail and for that we will be forever grateful. Fear not, for this is but a fleeting moment and it too will pass.
Until it does, come see us during our business hours:
Friday 8-4 (with Backyard BBQ Fridays 5-8)
Thanks for your understanding and your continued patronage,
Brandon+Whitney and all of us at Meriwether Cafe and Bike Shop
