So long DaVinci. Again.




Man, we were so jazzed when DeLand's live-music spot Caffe da Vinci café reopened a couple years back as simply DaVinci. Having undergone some vital restructuring the intimate, casual hang seemed reinvigorated, hosting everyone from the Shotgun Party to Bombadil to our own (also extinct) Southern Fried Sundays on occasion. The one-time home of the one-time-only DeLando Fest is sadly shutting their doors once again.

Actually, they're shut. Reports from locals are saying they're already gone.

Personally, my favorite memory of the place is interviewing No Circus on the patio on a beautiful day for an article – a great time in a great environment. Best wishes to owner Joshua Curry and their excellent crew.
