Zeni said they have a staff shortage and cannot do a coffee ceremony today. Sorry to change on the day of the dinner.
If you can read this, you are invited to my birthday party at Shebele Ethiopian Restaurant in Campbell (http://www.ethiopianrestaurant.com/california/shebele_menu.html). I will be ordering the coffee ceremony (includes very fresh coffee for everyone), and people are encouraged to order dinner as well. It should be under $10 a person, but let me know if you'd like to come but can't afford to. Be warned that it will take longer than a simple dinner.
Tuesday, July 11, 2006, 7pm (19:00).
Shebele Ethiopian Restaurant, 422 E Campbell Ave, Campbell, CA. (408) 378-3131
(Downtown Campbell by the railroad tracks, some parking across the street, more parking within a block.)

Why? It's my birthday, and I've never had the full coffee ceremony before. They roast it right before they grind it and brew it, and it should be fun!
I've contacted everyone in one form or another. Whew.
