It is with profound sadness that Abroz (owner of the Europa) has had to sell the restaurant due to illness. Abroz and Alida have been such a blessing and extremely supportive of The Inspired Mic for over two years. Ambroz’s public Facebook announcement is available here: Ambroz Announcement.
As far as The Inspired Mic goes, there will be some short-term impact. Our September 20th event date will be postponed until October. This will give Liz and I an opportunity to talk with the new owners as well as a location who already desires to host The Inspired Mic. As soon as everything settles and we are able to have the appropriate conversations, I will post the location and the date of the October Palm Coast Inspired Mic.
Fortunately, we do still have two Inspired Mic dates in September. Borillo’s in St. Augustine will be hosting our very first St. Augustine event on Thursday, September 13th at 6:00 pm. We also have a Thursday September 27th date at Borillo’s. We will continue to run 2nd and 4th Thursdays at Borillo’s with the exception of Thanksgiving Day.
We have nothing but best wishes for Ambroz as he continues is valiant journey. I am grateful for his support and encouragement which began over two years ago. I know this is the right thing for him to do and I am glad he has chosen this path for himself.
Please check back for updates as we move forward with securing a venue for The Inspired Mic in Palm Coast.
