New Art Exhibit – New Riddle Art Contest (Can you do it? Are you up to it?)
Weekly Riddle Raffle (just a reminder)

NEW ART EXHIBIT — Menu Riddle Gallery
An exhibition from a selection of the best from two years of our favorite John Sunderland Menu Riddle Art from both Life Cafes.
On display twice a month, the first and third Thursdays, January to May. Works available for sale.

These works are from our collection of weekly Picture Riddles based on items in the menus from both Life Cafés. THE ANSWERS ARE GIVEN! THE RIDDLES RESOLVED!

But we’re not letting you off the hook yet…the three pictures carry a common theme. Guess the common theme among them & win….

A bottle of champagne & a complimentary meal for two

Entry into a special raffle – Grand prize: an original commission
John will produce an original commission based on a riddle theme suggested by the winners (or a pastel portrait if preferred).

All you need to do is put your answer on a comment card & drop it in the box. We’ll pick winners on Thursdays when John changes the show.

John holds his “Master Class” in Riddle Art early afternoon every Thursday at the E. Village Café when he creates his original, surreal illustrations. Come watch.

WEEKLY RIDDLE RAFFLE (don’t forget it)
Each week on Thursdays at both Life Cafes we feature an original illustration by John Sunderland. Often bizarre and surreal, the images are our pictorial riddles – the answers to which you are invited to guess. The basis for the pictures and the source of inspiration comes from any item or term on any of our menus. Each week the Raffle is drawn and new winners can come to Life to claim their prize – A FREE BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE – to enjoy at the Café (we will email you). To enter, simply write your answer on a comment card with your contact info and pass it on to a member of our lovely staff.
