Courtyard Café at Bell Tower Shops hosts Rat Pack Tribute Show on Saturday, April 9
to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital


FORT MYERS, Fla. (April 4, 2011) –On Saturday, April 9 at 6 p.m., Courtyard Café will host a one-night only Rat Pack tribute show. The live show will star “Dean Martin”, “Sammy Davis, Jr.” and “Liza Minnelli” in a musical and comedic review as produced by Top Hat Entertainment and Superstars in Concert. A portion of the proceeds will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

            The European-style coffee house, formerly known as Blackhawk Café, opened in late 2010 after a major renovation by owners Ted and Carol Jensen.

            “Since February we have hosted a series of musical events for the enjoyment of our customers, including a Thursday night live tribute to Elvis, Frankie Valli and Neil Diamond and a Frank Sinatra tribute brunch on Sundays,” says Ted Jensen. “Greg Rini is the talented performer behind all these musical roles and he will be one of the performers in the Rat Pack tribute. All of the impersonators are renowned national acts based out of the Chicago area.”

            The Rat Pack show will take place on the stage located near the Courtyard Café patio dining area. A limited number of tables will be available for customers on a first-come, first-served basis. As this is a benefit show, a minimum purchase amount of $7.50 per person is requested. Reservations are suggested and encouraged by calling the café at 239-433-7770.

            While enjoying the show, Courtyard Café customers will enjoy table service on the patio with a full-menu including savory and sweet crepes, over-sized gourmet sandwiches, Belgian waffles, fresh salads, artisan-made gelato, homemade pastries and baked goods. In addition to gourmet espresso drinks, the café also offers a wide array of beverages such as beer, wine, smoothies, exotic teas, Italian sodas, N.Y. egg creams and more.

 “We are committed to provide our customers with not just great food, but also a great experience, whether it is friendly customer service or great entertainment,” says Carol Jensen. “We want our café to be a community gathering place for shoppers, professionals, visitors and locals alike.”
