Happy 1st Birthday Selma Café: February 19, 2010
Selma’s 1st birthday was the perfect occasion for me to treat myself, after missing this breakfast goodness for many, many months. (Naturally, I brought my trusty Nikon along.) It was a sweet reunion, and I was delighted to see so many of my favorite familiar faces. I was also amazed by how many new people have jumped in to keep Selma strong and vibrant. The house was packed. I believe it was a record-breaking week of — wait for it… — 135 guests!
If you haven’t yet experienced Friday Morning @ Selma, you’re missing out on a warm and inviting, uniquely homegrown, real-deal Ann Arbor experience. Everyone is welcome! Hopefully, we’ll see you there one Friday morning very soon.

Indeed! Where R U? Birthday cake this good, you don’t want to miss. (This photo was, miraculously, not staged — talk about serendipity!)
Remi Holden celebrated Selma’s “first b” with ink. | Waffles up!
Selma raises lots o’ “bacon” ($50,000 in donations to date) for local food-related causes
. | Lisa brings home the bacon, fries it up in a pan, and — well, you know.
Some of the many extremely cool Selma volunteers (l-r): Arthur (well, his torso anyway), Nate (in the doorway), Shawna, Courtney, Susie, Garin, and Claire.
Lisa greets guests at the “big table.”
Two of the youngest and cutest party guests: one, having finished her meal, has her hat and is ready to split; the other, sitting in a wash of sun, is just getting started.
In the living room: Nate folds napkins while diners wait for a seat.
Selma takes place at Lisa Gottlieb and Jeff McCabe’s home. | Nevon Clark (Lisa’s son) is a frequent presence at Selma, washing dishes and helping in myriad other ways. Thanks Nevon!
