I heard about this COFFEED pop-up event over a week ago, and made plans to go because it sounds pretty awesome, even though the weather seems determined to be a nuisance that night. But this week Ann Margaret O’Connor, the powerhouse behind Zoescope Studio and one of the event organizers, asked us at We Heart Astoria/We Heart LIC to be a media partner for it, and we jumped at the chance.

As you know, COFFEED is a great coffee house/coffee shop on the LIC/Astoria border, and everything from the coffee to the pastries is pretty delicious. I remember having the best egg-and-cheese-on-a-roll in some time there when I was working at the Entrepreneur Space shortly after Hurricane Sandy swept through. I’ve also spent time at their market, the QNS Urban Market, and experienced many taste treats. Plus it’s the same building as Brooklyn Grange, which is pretty cool (during the QNS Urban Market you could go up to the farm, too, and walk around—amazing views). Can you tell I’m a fan of this area?

Anyway, the event has a lot to offer, including live music, spoken word performances, tastings, installations, and original art. Best of all is this line from the invitation: “Every guest is greeted with a complimentary drink.” Nice.

What a great way to start a snowy evening in Astoria/LIC! And you get to see the new COFFEED event space before it’s officially open to the public. We’re always happy to hear about new event spaces in the neighborhood.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and will go for a few hours. We’ll be there, so if you see us, stop over and say hi. See you there!
