Full disclosure: The Orange Spot Coffeehouse’s Laura Cannon works at City Paper
. That said, we’d be writing about the shop anyway even if she didn’t, as Cannon and her business partner Julie Simuang have done a bang up job bringing the coffee shop to life. And to celebrate, this Sunday they’re hosting their one-year birthday party. The free event will include an assortment of entertainment like music from the V-Tones, coffee roasting demos from Coastal Coffee Roasters, photo book production from Flip Flix, and a caricature artist.
“My Sister’s House will have a table set up at the event, and with any donation amount that people give they will receive a birthday pack of custom-made stickers designed by local artist Krista Engler,” says Cannon. “And a matching Orange Spot button, along with a postcard from Ink Meets Paper.”
For bites, Cory’s Grilled and King of Pops will be on hand. At 2:15 a customer has organized a one-and-a-half-mile “fun run” and all participants will be entered to win a gift card or T-shirt.
But the best part? Cannon says at 3 p.m. the opening ceremonies begin with a singing of “Happy Birthday” and a bunch of babies smashing sheet cakes. For more details, click here
