Breaking News! Flipside & Coffee Mill to Change Ownership July 1

Coffee Mill and Flipside owners Jodi Sager & Cliff Morgan will sell the businesses effective July 1. They've been pioneers in Clayton integrating music, art and community as major components of their business for the past 10 years. As with any small business, they've faced struggles and stresses that are often tough to bear, but they've been able to survive and are now being rewarded by passing the torch. Thank you, Cliff and Jodi, for what you've brought to the community! The following is a message from Jodi and Cliff:

"Beside having some great music, and fun this week (Open Mic Tonight with Tracy Wiebeck, Karaoke on Thursday with Greg, and the great music of Mister Mustard on Friday)ownership of The FlipSide/Coffee Mill will be changing hands July 1st. It's with mixed emotions that we've decided to sell the place. We've had a fantastic time over the years and so many of you are responisble for that. To have been able to bring great music to downtown Clayton from all over the country, to have created Millstock: A Celebration of Music and Art on a rainy Saturday ten years ago and see it develop into something that the entire downtown has embraced, and to have made such great friends, we could not have asked for more! Over the last ten years we've seen the coming and going of various businesses in downtown, and we've had our ups and down, as well. But, it's all because of you that we're still open.

Thank You for all the good times and memories!

With that said, come on down and celebrate the transition with us over the next couple of days. The guys in the kitchen have some wonderful features planned and we're expecting to party it down at Open Mic tonight.
If you get the chance, stop by tonight or tomorrow night and let's toast one!

Remember, The FlipSide/Coffee Mill is NOT closing. The new owners love the place and with their energy, and vision, will be just making it better and better. We NEED a place like The FlipSide in Downtown. Keep supporting it.

Tonight: Open Mic with Tracy Wiebeck
Thursday: Karaoke with KJ Greg
Friday: Mister Mustard

Let's Party!!!!

Thanks!...Jodi & Cliff

Thanks Jodi and Cliff! Thanks for bringing me to Clayton to teach yoga at the Coffee Mill back in 2001 and serving us tea after class. Thanks for all the support and helping me launch East 2nd Street Yoga and Massage and now Purna Yoga East. If it wasn't for you guys I would never have met, Bob! and all our great friends.
You have no idea how many ways your vision for holding a collective consciousness of peace and good will and the effort put forth around your business has affected so many in positive ways, some of which have yet to be revealed. My life has been enriched by yours! Best wishes and

Thank you Cliff and Jodi for all your hard work. Megan has been called the "Coffee Mill" baby since I made the announcement. She's grown up in your establishment. She'll be heart broken when I tell her the news but I'm sure she'll be consoled when she realizes it will still be open. Heck she thinks it's her own personal restaurant. Be prepared to get a big hug if she see you again.
I've throughly enjoyed my trips to the place and will continue to support our local establishment.
