I talked with Paper Heart owner Scott Sanders yesterday afternoon, and he gave me official word: the place isn't closing after all. Turns out, the community really rallied around the place when Sanders brought up the strong possibility of shutting down at the end of 2006. Things are looking up now. The fabulous Ms. Leslie Barton's now on board, bringing her mighty fine musical taste to band bookings, and CounterCulture Cafe, recently booted from its McDowell Road digs, just set up shop inside the art gallery/bar/performance space. Sanders says the cafe is currently open nightly during regularly scheduled events, but soon it'll be open regular business hours. Good coffee drinks and Italian sodas are a given, but CounterCulture is serving sandwiches, hummus, and pita pizzas, too. Cue that Springsteen tune "Hungry Heart" . . .
