Thanks to Emerald City Coffee for hosting this night. Right off the Sheridan red line, stop in for anything on the menu and tasty things "off the menu." In addition, a lovely facelift continues in house, new paint on the ceiling, new lighting fixtures, new chairs, new menus so it only makes sense for our logo and online presence to also receive a new look.
