November Java Jam

The next Java Jam at Milam Street Coffee Shop in Wharton will be Friday, November 18th, 6-9 pm. The special musical guest performer is Jim Starr. Jim is a singer/songwriter with ties from the Academy of Texas Music to the National Beer Drinkers Association ( really, ask him to show you his card). His latest CD is "Sunrise Over Texas." His music can be heard over radio stations from Texas to Nashville to the Netherlands and Australia. He has organized the music for the Monterey Squaare Wine and Arts Fair and appeared in Hometown Heroes so it's time we showcased Wharton's own "music man," our Star, Jim Starr.
  
The special dessert in November is provided by The Dragon Fly (a new restaurant opening soon on the Square). You'll want to come and indulge in Caroline's wonderful cupcakes and other goodies.
For the month of November 2011, Selections on the Square is our Business of the Month. When you arrive at the Java Jam, make sure you pick up a free ticket so you will be entered into the drawing to win a prize from Mary Lee at Selections of the Square.
