Black & Brew Coffee House Now Open - February 20, 2006

Just received a message from Chris McArthur, one of the owners of Black & Brew Coffee House about the opening this past weekend:

Black & Brew Coffee House & Bistro opened this passed Thursday with a bang. So much for a soft opening. Local bands, Woodale and Pemberly played accoustic sets on Friday and Saturday nights. Both nights were "standing room only."

Black & Brew has been in the works for over a year now. Chris & Mike McArthur began putting together their business plan in November of 2004. Though the brothers encountered countless obstacles, their hard work is paying off.

Black & Brew features a menu of outstanding coffee, espresso, and blended drinks, along with gourmet sandwiches, wraps, salads, and paninis. The menu also features the brothers' spin on the old fashioned coffee house, a beer & wine selection.

Live blues, jazz, blue grass, or accoustic music will be provided every Friday and Saturday night, beginning at 8 p.m. Thursday night is open mic night, beginning at 7 p.m.

Hours of operation:
Mon-Wed 6:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Thursday 6:30 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Friday 6:30 a.m. - midnight
Saturday 10 a.m. - midnight

EMERGE Lakeland member's should stop by and support the new eatery!
