Community Coffee Social

Start your weekend off right with a caffeine boost and a friendly chat! Every Saturday morning, members of the Elizabeth Taylor 50-Plus Network meet at a coffee shop. There’s no set agenda; you may come and go as you please between 10 am and 12 pm. Some people hangout even longer and it is not uncommon for people to still be there around 1 pm.

These coffees are a social time open to everyone (bring a friend of any gender identity), and are a great way for first-timers to be introduced to the group. We encourage people to make Community Coffee Social their first stop as an entry point to the Elizabeth Taylor 50-Plus Network. You do not need to RSVP. See you there!
