In a less bustling part of town, Bridgeport Coffeehouse announced its second location at the Roosevelt Collection next to the entrance of the Showplace ICON theatre. The space is scheduled to open later this year with indoor and outdoor seating, locally roasted coffee, pastries and gourmet sandwiches.
If all this coffee talk left you with a need to caffeine, stop by the first ever Chicago Roaster Jam. It is being held tonight at Counter Culture. Coffee from 10 local roasters will be brewed, sampled and discussed during a panel led by Half Wit Coffee, Passion House Coffee Roasters along with New Gotham. The event is free.
