Inaugural “Coffee’s Night Out” Event Hits Nine Shops in Greenpoint, Brooklyn

This Sunday, Nov. 10, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, coffee is shining its shoes, hiring a babysitter, and stepping out for the night.

The inaugural Coffee’s Night Out event — a kind of cafe crawl that has a dual focus on coffee and pop-up art — is being presented by Chérmelle D. Edwards. On her personal site, Edwards has been beautifully chronicling New York coffee spaces and the people therein. The popular local blog Greenpointers is also presenting the event, which includes eight sponsoring coffee shops throughout the neighborhood, each of which will have a unique pop-up art program.

The event is free and attendees are encouraged to visit as many participating coffee shops as they like. Here is a handy reference map, and below it, a complete schedule of events and more information on how to join in.
