Fair Grounds Coffee House

All coffeehouses need a catchy name, right? There was Holy Grounds, the Christian coffeehouse and music venue in Allendale, NJ. And now we discover Riverside Church's Fair Grounds Coffee House. The open-mic-like coffeehouse encourages social-justice through fair-trade beverages and an empowerment of artists:

Date: Sunday, February 14, 2010
Time: 8:00PM - 9:30PM
Location: Room 10T

The Fair Grounds Coffee House is an opportunity for people in the NYC area to express their inner artist. Be it music, poetry, interpretive art, storytelling, or visual art, this is a creative and welcoming space. In our effort to foster community and support the creative endeavors of our peers, we have decided to sponsor a Coffee House once a month.

It will take place every 2nd Thursday and feature Fair Trade Coffee and Tea as well as light snacks. In order to promote social and ecological justice, we ask that you consider bringing a mug from your own collection so as not to pollute the earth with more junk for the landfills. Mugs can be stored at the church if you wish to leave them here for the next month.

Will you be attending? If you're an artist looking to promote your work, contact Asphalt Eden at stephanie.nikolopoulos [@]
