Saturday April 18, 2015 – We took a break from months of hard work and celebrated art, coffee, design and successful collaboration memorialized by Tom Franco’s Birthday Art Show and Rasa Caffe’s One Year Anniversary alongside SyncFab’s Innovation MicroHub in the Firehouse Micro Mall.

Preparations suitably began by setting up a life size birthday card as a fitting representation of the wonderful happenings that would unfold that evening. The two poodles on the card are Malibu and Dharma! And the black and white poodle you see are Coco and her lovely new friend who likes to wear her heart on her sleeve!

Later just when we thought our musical entree had already been served we then learned that there was not just one but TWO Bands to play that night including the Sweet Bones who continued by serenading everyone with an acoustic punk rythym for the second half. What a tremendous night!

Rasa Caffe stayed open late that evening serving his exquisite new “Golden Latte,” Chai and Rasa Coffee. There was a constant flow of people going between the two spaces. Rasa Caffe has quickly established itself as a pillar in the local community serving as a testimonial to the timely development of South Berkeley’s Lorin District.
