MARQUETTE — While the occasional bar crawl is always a good time, students at Northern Michigan University are working to give crawlers a chance to drink something new.
The NMU Public Relations Student Society of America is hosting the first ever Marquette Coffee Crawl. From 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, crawlers will be able to sample coffee from seven different shops. The event is to help spread awareness to the unique coffee flavors around the city of Marquette, as well as a more important cause.
“All of the proceeds go to the women’s center in Marquette,” said coordinator Myah Tatay “We chose the ticketing price of $12.50 because that’s what it costs for one woman to stay at the Harbor House.”
“We have a coffee that we’re going to be serving that Brice recently went to the farm in Guatemala for, and we’re going to be giving out four–ounce pours,” said Velodrome Retailer Paul Vafa.
Velodrome coffee will be the last stop on the Coffee Crawl. Each shop will offer four–ounce samples of some of their best brews.
Unfortunately, tickets for this event are sold out.
