We are trying out a coffee shop in Detroit for the first time! I heard from some members of the group that they would like a less casual option than Texas de Brazil with an atmosphere that encourages conversation. Urban Bean Co. in downtown Detroit will host us at 7 pm on Thursday, June 6th, 2013. The area is called Capitol Park and it is just a couple blocks away from Texas de Brazil. There is plenty of parking in and around the area. For those familiar with Cafe d'Mongos, Urban Bean Co. is in the same block.
Urban Bean Co. has a large screen TV and also offers turntables to play music. The location is great to watch a short Portuguese video or listen to Portuguese music in the background while we practice the language.
This is also a special opportunity to welcome new members from in and around the downtown Detroit area. If you live in or near Detroit and found our other locations too far to travel to, this is a great time to make an appearance and join the family! We welcome members of all proficiency levels. Native speakers will feel at home - this is your comfort zone and you will meet people who absolutely love this language! Beginners will be surprised to find how supportive our members are in helping them pick up the language. We will speak both in English and Portuguese so nobody would feel left out.
