Tri Spunoga Diner Deo

As the title says in the Gaelic language, Three Spoons Diner forever. Once again with the support of Doug Gall and his great restaurant staff Spark Creative Artspace enjoyed another fundraising special dinner. For the second year the people of our community came out in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and to support both Spark and one of the village’s favorite businesses. Spark wants to thank everyone who helped in any way and rest assured the proceeds will be spent wisely on continuing to bring the arts to our area.

Not a frown to be seen!

Spark’s New Chairs!

One thing that’s been holding Spark back with its new location is the lack of furniture, especially seating. Fortunately we were able to purchase in excess of 100 stackable chairs at auction and will now be able to host all sorts of public events.

The down side is having to pay for the chairs. A certain someone has pitched in $100 towards the $550 costs and what we now need is a bunch of someones to donate whatever amount they can afford towards paying off the balance.

Please send your tax-deductible donation to:

Spark Creative Artspace, PO Box 325, Greenfield, OH 45123.

Cinco de Mayo with Spark & El Canon

cincodemayfoodsSpark has teamed up with local Mexican restaurant, El Canon to celebrate the Mexican national holiday, Cinco de Mayo (5th of May).  It marks the day a smaller Mexican force defeated the French at the Battle of Pueblo. This victory went on to rally the Mexican people in their struggle to cast out the imperialist French.

In America it has become a day to recognize and celebrate the contributions Mexican heritage and culture have added to the ever changing blend that is America.

To make the evening special Spark is working with El Canon to develope a few menu items not usually served while ensuring the regular menu will be available.  I’m guessing there will also be a couple of special adult beverages to round out the uniqueness of the evening.

To pay back to the community they serve El Canon will be donating a generous portion of its profits back to help fund the many projects of Spark Creative Artspace. I’m sure Spark will be holding a 50/50 raffle and selling their extremely cook t-shirts.

Mark your calendar and bring the family to El Canon Mexican Restaurant & Cantina on Monday, May 5, 2014 at 1444 Jefferson St., Greenfield, OH. Times are 4-8 p.m.

SPARK-logo 200x202Take a break from the week’s labors and don’t cook on Friday night, April 25th. Stop by the VFW Ranch on Watt Rd.

The fish fry will be in operation from 5-7:00 pm and at 7:30 pm the Roots in the Field music concert will begin. Come for one, stay for both!
