New coffeehouse in West Loop

A new, independent coffeehouse is coming to West Loop! The Ugly Mug Cafe, in West Town, is opening it's second location in early 2015. What's interesting is they are seeking customers and new neighbors to fund a community-sourced loan for the costs of construction. They are choosing this type of loan instead of traditional financing because they believe in the benefit of community involvement to grow the cafe and the neighborhood. FYI, they built their patio this year using this same lending method.

Check out how this works and how you can invest in the neighborhood you love:

    Certainly there must be some innovative writers workshops featuring the literary contributions of writers like Paul Lawrence Dunbar and other literary giants of the Black Cultural Renaissance that took place in Bronzeville! :-)
