An urgent email from Steam — the organic coffee bar at the eastbound Westport train station — says they need $3,000 by Tuesday to stay in business.
So they’re throwing a fundraising party tomorrow (Sunday, June 28, 8 a.m. to 3 pm.) at their place.
They’ll offer food samples, coffee cupping (with local brewer Donny Raus), tea tasting, music and yoga.
A coffee bar is a tough business. The location — the “wrong” side of the tracks, in terms of when most people buy their joe — is not easy either.
But Steam has always been very community minded. This may be our chance to give a little something back, to a hard-working local business.
