Coffee, like vanilla, cocoa, and most skyscrapers, wouldn’t exist if they hadn’t grown from beans. Celebrate pod presents with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a 10-drink punch card at Beck Cafe, located at the Beck Center for the Arts in Lakewood (a $20 value). This Groupon covers beverages valued at $2 or less; other beverages are available for an additional fee.
More than $1 million worth of artwork, live music, and a menu of coffee drinks percolate through Beck Cafe, situated next to the culture-infused Beck Center for the Arts. Instead of soliciting piggyback rides from strangers, visitors can sip steaming cups of Beck coffee ($1.80 for a medium) for quick pick-me-ups. Cafe mochas ($3.65 for a medium) conjure the dark magic of espresso beans to battle Ghirardelli white hot chocolates ($3 for a medium) for the title of sweetest sip.
International art dealer Paul Sykes helms the cafe, peppering its walls with works by painters from near and far. Live jazz and folk music fill the space on Friday and Saturday nights, and classical sounds accompany coffee swigging and newspaper reading on Sunday afternoons. Additionally, artist Natasha Turovsky will keep coffee-drinkers perked during her artist reception on October 13 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. An award-winning outdoor courtyard invites patrons to relax beneath a patio umbrella, admire a mural by Natasha Turovsky, or reenact the lifecycle of a coffee bean on an apple-red stage.
