I don’t want to say it’s a new beginning. It is whatever it is. I just could not stay another day in the old venue of Wharf Galley so we tried our best to look for a new home. Avenue Square made it possible for us to be here, and so here we are. Others might not like this change, this might not be considered growth, but at least it’s no longer “One step forward, two steps back.” I said either Wharf Galley moves to a different location or it closes with me, as nobody else wanted to see to it that it goes on. More than just myself, there is the staff, who needs this more than I do. This is not a selfish move. I myself do not need this. I can just go back to my normal life in Manila and just leave all this behind, but here we are, James and I, our entire families, all the staff behind us, all the bands, and everyone who is supporting us, fighting on…

I have been uber busy with a lot of things lately, and I’m not complaining, I love every minute of it. We have a lot of events scheduled at Wharf Galley Rock Cafe, and things are looking up. We have bands from Manila like Brownman Revival playing tonight and Razorback on the 15th, as well as a ska band from Legazpi, Stolenshots on Sunday. My friend Ver Estotsenberg designed the posters for Brownman and Stolenshots (much thanks Dude!).
We will also be operating seven days a week now, as opposed to the old Wednesdays to Sundays open days. My friend Chef Summer‘s menu will now be implemented, with rice meals, sandwiches, pasta, pizza now on the menu. (Happy Birthday dearie! Much love!) I have been working closely with my friend Chase for supplies from Coca-Cola so that we can now also have soft drinks, bottled water, and juice drinks on the menu. I am waiting for the Takoyaki cook set from Japan and soon enough we will be putting up a Takoyaki stall in front of the cafe in the afternoons, with REAL coffee being served upstairs.
