A DAMN FINE SOURCE FOR COFFEE
Alright. This February TNT has been a little tricky and now we are going to change it up again!
Sam Penix of Everyman Espresso up in New York had this awesome idea to put together a throwdown to raise money for relief efforts in Haiti. One of her regular customers is heading up an organization called ‘REBATI’ that you can find out about here. Her throwdown idea consists of 10 cities all over the country to have an event to raise money for this charity. So, D.C., we have never been out done by New York in throwdowns and we wont be beaten this time either.
Since this comes on really short notice, I am going to ask you all to dig deep and hit up everyone you can think of to contribute to you or a barista you know who can pour this Thursday at TNT! All donations/entry fees are going to Haiti for this event! We will have some beverages there, $1 donation requested for a drink, but if you are feeling extra generous, well… All of that money will also go to Haiti.
For the top throwers down, there will be some sweet prizes donated to us by Counter Culture Coffee and Reg Barber!!! I will be putting in a bottle of one of my favorite Dogfishhead 750ml for the winner also.
Word on the street is there may be some press covering this event– lets give them a show!
Thanks to all who have helped get this together so quickly! I cant wait to see all of you there.
