Steven Cohen of O-Town Cafe told Owosso Now on Friday that a Friday regular had stopped in earlier that day and donated $1,100 "to make sure they could come back next Friday."

Well, good news.  O-Town will be open this Friday.  In fact, thanks to an outpouring of support, Cohen says the restaurant will be open Thursday through Saturday from 8am to 3pm.

Cohen announced recently that O-Town would close; a reluctant decision based not on a failure of the restaurant, but on a complicated situation related to a similar restaurant in Lansing that Cohen owned and was forced to close previously.

But Cohen told Owosso Now today that while no decisions have been made about the restaurant being open after this week, "if all goes well, it will be ok."

The community knows that O-Town has done more than serve food since it opened two years ago.  It has served and advocated for the community relentlessly; opening on the winter's coldest days as a warming shelter, specifically for the community's homeless, offering not just warmth and safety, but a bite to eat.

Cohen also serves on the Curwood Festival Board of Directors, that just wrapped another successful year.
