I just realized that The Bard’s Town is probably my inspirational model for my cupcakery. It is mainly a restaurant, but because it is devoted to offering live music, theatre, and who knows what else to its patrons, it has become a lively place to eat and a sanctuary for small theatre and music groups in Louisville. Their model for charging artists has just been updated in the link above and it looks like sometimes they give 100% ticket sales back to the artist! That is ah-MAZING! I will look closer at their model before deciding on how the cupcakery will operate, but I have great hope that this place is for profit and thriving!
