Happy Birthday to Cup & Top!

Jan 27

Cup & Top Cafe in Florence has been a great friend to the show since we were both babies — they started five years ago next month, when we had only been on the air about six months ourselves.  They’re celebrating their birthday all month, including a bunch of shows you might call warmups to the Meltdown.  So, check it out:

  • Every Tuesday @ 4pm – Puppets & Sing-Along Time with Anna Sobel of Talking Hands Theatre* (ages 1-5)
  • Saturday Feb. 5th, 5-7pm – Opening reception (and gift basket giveaway!) for Hilltown Families: A Traveling Photography Exhibit Featuring Life and Landscape in Western MA. (all ages!)
