Thursday Kick-Off – CHBP 2011

| July 28, 2011

Thanks to all who attended the 7/21 show in our Bean Room — one wild week ago — by Morning Teleportation. Our Thursday kickoff to the Capitol Hill Block Party featured the up-and-coming Portland band, groovy lights, and complimentary cold-brew coffee. Because we partnered with Verizon for this Coffee Shop Series concert, all attendees left the Bean Room loaded up with a bag of “Morning Teleportation Blend” coffee, and T-shirts and posters printed by The VERA Project.

We got the Golden Boot!

Last night, Caffe Vita was delighted and honored to be named the 2011 Community Partner by The Service Board at the annual Golden Boot. (Thank you, tSB!) Here is Bob Prince accepting the Golden Boot Award. The event was held at Havana with tacos and sliders by Marination Mobile.

The Service Board exists to create mentoring activities for Seattle high school-age youth.
