Cafe Lily Introduces Early Supper Hour!
During these uncertain times, we understand how much strain dining out can put on wallets and pocketbooks. To help combat the recession and to pass on even more savings to you, we have decided to begin Early Supper Hour!

Effective immediately, when you order any dinner entree between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, we will include your choice of a small side salad or cup of soup, a choice of small dessert, and a choice of one soft drink at no additional cost. Yes - you read that right - NO ADDITIONAL COST! It's the least we can do to help you to have a nice dinner out more often!

For reservations, please call (404) 371-9119.

Decatur City Dance Presents Winter Concert
Combine these ingredients: ballet, bacchanal, the French film “Amelie,” a Celtic song, tapping to a tango, swinging to "Mercy," jazz dances "Jai Ho" and "Evacuate," and powerful, energetic modern dance movement set to "Pulling Rabbits out of a Hat."

The result is Decatur City Dance's popular Winter Dance Concert. The oldest performing dance group in DeKalb County, the company is presenting its 57th season February 5th at 7:30 pm and February 6th at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm in the theatre at St. Pius High School.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on January 18th. For tickets and more information, call 404-378-3388.

East Decatur Station Jazzerrcisers dance for the cure!
A team of 17 Jazzercisers from East Decatur Station will join with 500 other Jazzercisers from Metro Atlanta at the Ritz Carlton Buckhead on Valentines Day to raise money for Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

3 hours of dance fitness and hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations raised and given will hightlight the day.

Our Decatur team has beautiful bracelets available for a $20 donation to the cause and is planning other team fundraiser events as well.
