Correction: Klekolo Started In 1994
An alert reader caught a mistake in our article about Klekolo World Coffee Day, which Mayor Drew proclaimed on Tuesday. Drew wrote that Hollie Rose opened Klekolo on March 18th, 1984, and went on to congratulate the Coffee Shop on its 19th anniversary.
We at The Eye pride ourselves on our numeracy, we're ashamed to have overlooked the glaring arithmetical mistake. We draw slim comfort from Ms. Rose, who told us that nobody at Klekolo noticed it either, "It's really funny that none of us saw that!"
Our city's best coffee shop actually opened in 1994. The Eye apologizes for its uncritical acceptance of the words of government officials, we'll try to do better.
