It’s officially summer in Darien when espresso NEAT opens their beautiful outdoor patio. So, what better way to kick it off than with some live music and a contest to prove your worth? We’re talking about Doug Allen live outside of NEAT and a latte art competition. They’ll begin the signup for competitors on 6/20 at 6 pm and the first pour will happen at 7 pm and go until 9 pm. Check their FB page and their site because they might be offering an online sign-up for those who can’t make 6. Each entry costs $5, but that money will be going directly to help the victims of the devastating Oklahoma tornado.
You can expect to compete against other brewistas who know a whole helluva-latte about making a pretty cup come alive. Winners will not only get bragging rights, but get some great prizes from different coffee roasters, too. Even if you’re not competing, this will prove to be a great, chill night. You can watch artists at work, sip on some nice drinks, and chow down on some great local baked goods.
Now, we’re curious here, can any of you make designs over your cappuccino? Or, if you can’t, what would your design be? Personally, we’ve never tried, but if we were experts, we’d create a cappuccino cup on top of the cappuccino. That would be sick.espresso NEAT Phone: (203) 202-7215 Address: 20 Grove Street Darien, CT 06820 Hours: Monday-Saturday: 7AM to 6PM
