Tavares is on the evening of Thursday, September 14th at the Michigan Avenue Borders and continues through Thursday, the 21st of September with a final performance by Carmen Consoli. Over the course of the week, there are performances at the Borders stores on State Street, in Hyde Park, Clark Street in Lakeview, North Avenue and Broadway in Uptown.

We are delighted that Borders, one of our important customers nationally, has highlighted our World Music Festival performances on Sunday, September 17th by Heather Maxwell and Afrika Soul and Son Trinidad.

Eli’s Featured at Cafe Borders in June; Stop in and pick up a paper back edition of My Life By Bill Clinton

Long summer days are a perfect time to visit Borders Books & Music. There are three great reasons to visit Borders in the near future:

1. Borders is featuring our Turtle Brownie and a small premium coffee for $2.99. A great treat and a great deal.

2. Through June 19th, Borders is offering 25% off the regular price of one item. Visit the Borders web site at to print your coupon.

3. Vintage Books just released the first paperback edition of My Life by Bill Clinton. In the earlier editions, it was unclear where Bill Clinton visited on Thursday, March 12th, 1992 in Illinois. Now it reads:

In Illinois, I visited (Eli’s) Cheesecake with black, Hispanic, and Eastern European immigrant employees to highlight the company’s committment to giving all employees who hadn’t finished high school access to a GED Program. I met a new citizen from Romania who said he would cast his first vote for me.

Thanks Bill and Thanks Borders for featuring Eli’s.
