REMEMBERING SELA HENRIQUEZ ARAUJO
This 49-year-old grandmother and nanny who cared for neighborhood children was one of our regulars at Upper Noe. Sadly, she was one of the two victims who died in a collision caused by a speeding driver Sunday June 23 at Third Street and Paul Avenue. She was the passenger in a Lyft. Our condolences to her family and to our community of nannies. Sela will be missed.

Whether you bring the kids along or not, come on out and enjoy great tunes.
