Curbside Coffee set to reopen bringing karaoke and music back to Lorain Avenue
(Plain Press, August 2021) Curbside Coffee, 9858 Lorain Avenue, will reopen on Monday August 2nd, bringing karaoke, and live musical performances back into its home on Lorain Avenue. Judy Fitch, owner of Curbside Coffee, says she closed the coffee shop in March of 2020 due to the pandemic.
Fitch says Curbside Coffee plans to have Karaoke on Monday nights beginning at 6 p.m.; Bluegrass Music on Tuesday nights from 7-9 p.m.; Country Music on Wednesday nights from 7-9 p.m. and 50s and 60s Music along with some Country Music on Thursday nights from 7-9 p.m. In addition, the last Friday of each month Curbside Coffee will have Gospel Music from 7-9 p.m. and will host an Open Mike Night on the third Saturday of each month from 7-9 p.m.
Fitch says she opened Curbside Coffee with her late husband Terry fourteen years ago. She said Terry passed away about a year and a half after they opened the coffee shop. Fitch, a West Tech graduate, continued to run the coffee shop in her old neighborhood. She says running the coffee shop has been a lifesaver for her. She loves the people who come in to listen to music and feels her husband left her a gift that helps to sustain her. She will miss those regular customers who passed away during the time the Curbside Coffee was closed.
