The campus ministry I attend had an open-mic coffee house on Saturday night. I was blown away by some of the talent, and it was a lovely time for fellowship and entertainment. One of the girls even drew portraits for us! For those familiar with Biblical scripture, the event was called Hebrews holy grounds... He brews holy grounds. good one.
A couple friends of mine have a tradition of going to a new bakery every Saturday in Brooklyn. I joined along this week and we stopped at Konditori. It was a new Swedish bakery (mainly coffee shop) in Greenpoint. The ambiance felt fresh and sophisticated. The pastries were delicious. I definitely recommend it!
