Back in May, Lisa and Vinetta announced that they were closing Rhizome Cafe to move to Toronto. This space has been a vital community hub, event space and makes for a very cozy restaurant. Over the years, I’ve put on events in that space, attended meetings there and bit into their apple, caramelized onion and cheese sandwich dozens of times.
It was an honour to capture the beautiful mural by Melanie Schambachat the café, which was made into postcards.
I was also the photographer at their closing event, taking pictures of the event as well as running a photo booth. What a special evening!
Trinity United Church will be taking over the current Rhizome space and it looks like it will be a great fit.
