Recent Vandalism of our John Lewis Mural

Dear friends and neighbors, 

The outpouring of support from our immediate community and farther afield in response to the defacing of our beautiful mural has been overwhelming. I am moved by your love and encouragement. Rocky Cotard, the mural’s artist, and I are deeply saddened and hurt by this hateful act. In a time when we are all surviving on the finest wisps of hope, the degradation of this optimistic, celebratory work of art seems even more callous and pointless. And it compounds the stresses that I already bear as a small woman-owned business struggling to stay open. That said, both Rocky and I want you to know that we continue to look forward with hope and resolve. Representative John Lewis modeled many valuable lessons, among them that outrage without purpose and action does not move us forward. I encourage you to find ways to channel your sadness and outrage at this incident into positive change. We all have the power to face hard conversations with open hearts and minds, stand up for what is right and just and to change the world that we live in for the better. 

We too will do our part. Rocky intends to start the restoration process early next week. If you are in the neighborhood on Monday or Tuesday, please stop by and say hello. Thank you to the art restoration professionals who have reached out and offered their expertise. 

Our work doesn’t end there. My intention at Urban Hearth has always been to create a space where people gather around a table and share not only in a meal but also in conversation, ideas and community. I am currently working with local community leaders to put together a virtual dinner gathering which we will host shortly after Thanksgiving. This focus of this facilitated conversation is still in development. My hope is that we can host an open and productive conversation about how each of us can create change that supports justice, equity and inclusion in our own communities. We will offer a family-style meal from Urban Hearth, for those who want to order. Proceeds from the night will go towards programs that support these values. 

Stay tuned for more news about this event. Wishing you all a safe and joyful Thanksgiving. 

With gratitude,

Erin Miller

The Return of Family Meal

Starting early December we are changing gears and bringing back our family-style meals to go. The menu will feature a full meal for 2 or 4 people with vegetarian options. The menu will change weekly, and include some favorites like Paul's pickle brined fried chicken. The patio will remain open for casual dining as long as possible. Join us for drinks and light fare or order up the family meal to enjoy outside.

Private Dining

Time is running out to book our patio for private parties. The entire patio is yours for the night. Our team builds the evening's service around your needs; whatever they are we’ll make it work, it's your party! Contact us ASAP to learn more and secure your date. 

 

For when it gets really cold, beginning in November we will be opening our dining room on a select number of evenings to host bespoke private dinner parties indoors. Contact us for more information.
