It’s a new semester et une bonne année!

We hope you all had a lovely and restful winter break. Sure, things have been a little bit dramatic lately, what with ice storms and temperatures dipping below Mars standards. But somehow it still feels good to be back. Time for us all to get into our Glendon grooves, Lunik included.

After a quiet break for our little café, it is so nice to be back and feeling the Glendon love again! Lunik est maintenant ouvert, avec les mêmes heures que le semestre passée. De plus, ce semestre nous espérons qu’il y ait plus d’occasions ici pour la communauté de Glendon : la musique, les séminaires et beaucoup d’autres évènements. Nous souhaitons que vous pouviez nous joindre et si vous avez une idée pour quelque chose à Lunik, n’hésitez pas à nous faire part de vos!

We always love to hear from folks at Glendon, so if there’s something you are interested in seeing or doing at Lunik, definitely let us know! You can contact us at lunik.cooperative@gmail.com, and of course keep your eye out for updates on our Facebook page. Get yourself ready for a great semester Glendon! It may be off to a frigid start, but there is always a lot of cozy love waiting for you in Lunik.

Blog: Trouble & Daughter and Late-night Tuesdays at Lunik

Recently, the amazing acoustic trio Trouble & Daughter were at Lunik!

Less is more: our flyers for the event – from my Instagram

They played at our recent Late-night Tuesdays at Lunik event, where we’re open until 11:30 pm with local and organic beer and wine ($4).

When Naz and I went around campus to hand out our flyers for the event, most people gave us a polite but doubtful “okay, thanks!” An hour later, the cafe was crowded and it looked as though our face to face promotions were effective.

Awesome vibes in the cafe… – taken by Natalia

The show was filmed, and we’re working on getting that up some time… in the meanwhile you should check out their website, YouTube, and bandcamp.

Late-night Tuesdays at Lunik are our versions of pub nights, a chill cafe atmosphere much like what it’s like during the day except with dimmer lights and local wine and beer. Sometimes we have a main event and sometimes we don’t. They’re decided on a week to week basis so check back on our website and follow our Twitter to keep up with what we’re planning!
