October 25: Xandra returns for a scary night of dance—no, not because she is dancing, but because it’s our annual Shimmyshowcase Halloween show!

Be sure to mark your calendars and come to I-Coffee this evening as this will be one Halloween treat you won’t want to miss!

We also have room for one more dancer, so if you’d like to perform to these fantastic musicians, please contact us at Please bring friends and arrive early to hear pre-dancing singing by Marguerite as you enjoy some refreshment from the menu.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Please allow time for parking to avoid missing any of the fun. Since street parking around I-Candy Coffee is scarce, we recommend you try the perimeter of the park located two blocks west of I-Candy Coffee at Broadway and Cherry. Please try to arrive before 7:00 PM (earlier if you’re a performer!) as we try not to start the show until everyone has settled with a tasty beverage.
