Vehicle Smashes Into Williamson Street Coffee Shop Following Car Crash

August 21, 2016

Two cars collided on Madison’s Williamson Street early Sunday morning sending one of the vehicles into Mother Fool’s Coffee Shop.  Two passengers had to be pried out of the vehicle after it literally sailed through the front door.   The victim of the other vechile was also injured.  All three are being treated at UW Hospital.  No word on the speed of the cars at the time of the accident or if drinking was a factor. Major damage has occurred—needless to say–to the building.

The accident happened at 2:45 A.M.

Just last night about 9 P.M. James and I walked past the coffee shop where open mic was taking place for poetry and singing.  The place had a real nice crowd and I asked James if I should entertain the folks with a song.  “Just keep walking,” was all he said.

    It’s been beautiful to watch the community rally behind Mother Fool’s… they put together a gofundme crowdfunding campaign this morning to be able to continue to pay staff and begin repairs (as insurance $$ takes time to receive)…. and they’ve raised nearly 6k in 5 hours! You can check the progress here:

    People are inspiring…

    Looking forward to hearing about you performing there in the future!
