A big hello to our friends and supporters of Black Box!

We hope during these last several months, you and your loved ones have been safe and in good health! We are reaching the end of a long hard road to restart our business at a new location, and wanted to share some exciting news as we prepare to take our first important steps to re-opening. So here it goes!

As many of you may recall, we were shut down in March when COVID-19 hit and found it necessary to cancel our remaining art exhibit schedule. Shortly into the shutdown, we took the decision to change locations and bring ourselves closer to Michigan Avenue – at 1034 Monroe - where our engagement through art and coffee could continue!

We’ll begin our business re-opening in phases, respecting the safety of our customers, which is paramount to Black Box. Our first phase, targeted for Saturday, October 24th, will be the opening of our walk up window to reintroduce our craft made coffees in a manner that is safe and accessible. We do require a face mask for service to ensure the safety of not only our employees, but also all of you whom we are eager to serve!

Phase 2 will include the ability to enter inside the new space to place your orders, adhering to a process flow that assures social distancing while placing an order and exiting without crossing paths. Phase 3 will be a return to more active engagement in artistic and cultural arts programming as well as special events.

The timing of phases 2 and 3 will be driven by a number of factors, most importantly our ability to get the new business operation up and running in a safe and effective manner – so more to come as we learn together!

We thank all of you for your patience during these difficult times. Black Box has not been spared from the small business challenges many have faced, and we are grateful to be given the chance to reconnect with the community. See you soon!

A funny, heartwarming adventure written and illustrated by a couple of Scottish Terrier lovers, A Tail of Two Scotties tells the story of Piper and Mac, stubborn Scotties who are opposites in many ways. When their human family takes a trip to Grandma’s farm without the dogs, the terriers are none-too-happy about missing out on a visit to their favorite getaway spot.

Managing to escape from their house, Piper and Mac decide to make their way to Grandma’s on their own, encountering a series of dangers on their long journey. And with both of them being leaders rather than followers, this presents the Scotties with some major challenges.

Whether the independent canines can overcome their differences is anyone‘s guess in this fast-moving doggie tail!
