Business Expo and Concert
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Town Meeting I.I. is a day of enlightenment, unity, education and
entertainment. The focus is to bring together the Houston
gay/lesbian community and plant the seeds that will initiate change
to further improve the lives of people in the community of Houston.

diversity within the community.

WOMAN OWNED COFFEEBAR
OPENS IN MONTROSE
There hasn't been this much excitement
about the opening of a new business in
the community since Inklings. Andrea
Gerber and Caroline Burum took the
plunge recently to open TOOPEES
COFFEES at 1830 W. Alabama. Andrea
is an attorney by profession and
Caroline's background is in restaurant
management, combining necessary
elements for their new business venture
to be successful. The name they call
each other is "P", short for partner. They
really couldn't think of any other name for
their new business, so a slight twist on
the spelling gave them TOOPEES.
If you enjoy a flavorful brew - hot or cold,
the company of nice folks in clean and
SMOKEFREE surroundings, this is a
place for you. The avant-garde decor
includes a funky but stylish mural. There
are a few sidewalk cafe tables out front
and a deck is being added on the side.
Live music is featured on Weekend
evenings. But it is mostly the warm
personalities of the Two Ps themselves
that provides the comfortable ambience.
The Toopees building sits slightly back
from busy West Alabama in what was
once a convenience store. A later
incarnation was a porn bookstore (that's
o.k., Inklings is housed in what was once
a topless bar). This is definitely
Toopees serves a variety of Allegro
gourmet coffees, beer, wine, and other
special beverages. Breakfast fare &
quick lunches are offered. The desserts
are far too tempting. The women also
provide coffee catering. I suggest you go
by, say hello and have a cup of Java.
