Dearest patrons, due to our inability to keep up with de-icing the brick path throughout the winter, we have decided to close the front door for the season. Please use our handicapped accessible side-entrance until March which is located on the West side of the building (according to our door counter statistics half of you already use this entrance anyway). Stay safe and walk carefully.
