The 2018 edition of Night of 1000 Pours happens Friday, Mach 16th, raising funds for the American Civil Liberties Union in their ongoing fights to support immigrants rights, LGBTQIA rights, and the rights of students to conduct lawful protests. Coffee brands across the country are getting in on the action by raising funds and throwing parties, including Equator Coffees, Stumptown Coffee, Heart Coffee Roasters, Reanimator Coffee Roasters, Everyman Espresso, G&B Coffee, Joe Coffee, Intelligentsia Coffee, Fleet Coffee, and many more.
For this, year two of the Night of A Thousand Pours, Sprudge is getting in on the action in a new and special way. We've teamed up with Portland Coffee Social Club and members of the Portland, Oregon coffee community to host a very special coffee and childhood breakfast treat service. We're calling it the Pop-Tart Pop-Up.
The first-annual Portland Pop-Tart Pop-Up will take place from 10am-3pm on Friday, March 16th at Sprudge Studios (3640 SE Belmont Avenue), with all proceeds benefitting the ACLU of Oregon. $5 at the door gets you a Pop-Tart of your choice (there will be a surfeit of options)—toasted to your preferred level of perfection on Breville Smart Toasters—and a delicious cup of batch brew drip coffee, sourced by Omar Herrera of La Bodega and roasted by Angel Medina of Smalltime Roasters, the house brand of Portland's own Kiosko Coffee. Coffee service will be supported by the experts at Black Rabbit Service Co., with delicious condiment options on hand thanks to Oatly, Pacific Foods, and Sunshine Dairy. There's also a lovely raffle happening with prizes donated from near and far, hosted by Portland Coffee Social Club, and who knows, Buzzy and Spesh—our giant anthropomorphic coffee beans—may be making a very special appearance.
This is the first public event at Sprudge Studios, the new creative studios and events space from Sprudge Media Network. You can learn much more about the development of this project over the last few months in the latest episode of the Coffee Sprudgecast, out now—download via iTunes—but suffice to say we're thrilled to welcome you into our space to drink delicious coffee, snack on a Tart or two, and raise money for the ACLU.
Thank you and we'll see you March 16th!
