He would be wearing shiny black boots, with a full mane of long white hair curled perfectly at the ends.

Blue Note owner Mike Goldman

Mike Goldman’s Blue Note Coffee, Bagel and Sandwich Company, which opens December 8 in the Sango area of Clarksville, will strike a new and different chord with a creative menu of gourmet sandwiches, bagels, great coffee, WiFi and live blues music.

Located at 3371 Highway 41A South (Madison Street in Sango), the Blue Note is in part Goldman’s way to “get a good bagel” by making his own, baked on the premises and served up with assorted cream cheeses or butter. That’s just the beginning. Expresso and assorted hot and iced coffee-based beverages include  Caramel Attack (a blend of caramel flavor drizzled over whipped creme, foaming milk and Expresso), Snapping Turtle (steamed milk, caramel, dark cocoa, whipped creme and chopped peanuts), Berry Patch (white cocoa, Expresso and raspberry flavor)…and of course, there’s regular coffee and expresso “straight up.” «Read the rest of this article»
