Official Grand Opening of Celebrate Cafe at the Bowery Poetry Club
Celebrate Cafe is almost in its fifth month of operation inside the Bowery Poetry Club. The venture is run by the Lower Eastside Girls Club, and doubles as an entrepreneurial program for youth and young adults. A nice symbiotic relationship on the Bowery. We received an email from the owners announcing that today is the grand opening.

We make “fast food” fun, healthy and affordable. Can’t beat that!
