Our favorite incubator kitchen is turning six years old this year! Every year they have a party and this year is no different—this year they are calling it their “Sixth Sense” birthday party (don’t worry, no ghosts will be there… at least we don’t think so). It will take place on Friday, March 31 from 6 to 8pm.

It’s always a good time at the E-Space birthday party—I’ve been to many of them, and have always enjoyed them. Attendees get a chance to sample the products developed and produced there, all created by individual small businesses. Some of the things you can expect to enjoy are Malaysian curry pastes and sauces from Mama Lam; artisanal truffles made with Valhrona chocolate from Milène Jardine Chocolatier; organic, vegan gluten-free baked goods from Halety Sweetz; organic, gluten- and nut-free granola from Luv Michael; caffeinated beverages from COFFEED; and beer from Bayside Brewery.

You’ll also have a chance to pick up recent issues of Edible Queens, do some networking if that’s your bag, meet all sorts of interesting people, and connect with your elected officials. The folks that run the Entrepreneur Space—the Queens Economic Development Corporation—will give a speech and update you on accomplishments and achievements by the space and its tenants.

Aside from M&T Bank, some great community-oriented sponsors are behind this event to help make it happen. They include the aforementioned COFFEED, a local coffee roaster and supporter of over a half dozen charities around the world; The Fortune Society, a nonprofit that trains individuals so they can find employment in the food-preparation industry; and Queens Community House, another nonprofit which runs a similar program that trains youth for careers in food service.

The Entrepreneur Space itself has helped almost 600 small businesses, generated more than $6.5 million in revenue, and created more than 100 jobs over the past six productive years, according to a study.

So stop on by this Friday and help this wonderful part of the community celebrate six years in existence!
