It’s about bringing community together. It’s about showing that we care for others. It’s about expressing all of this in different, unique ways. Join us on Friday, March 2 from 6-11pm as we band together as a community to raise money for Haiti, a country in great need.
Local coffee shops will be hosting live musicians. There will be artists ready to hand you a paintbrush. We’ll have trivia games that might just blow your mind. So pick up your favorite mug, hop in the car, and come see us. This is going to be different. Extraordinarily different.

READY! SET! CRAWL! Already the most charitable pub crawl in the nation, the Ghent Winter Bar Tour will try to outdo itself once again on Saturday, February 25th as it hits the streets of midtown Norfolk for the biggest night out this winter! As always, all proceeds from this event will benefit a fantastic organization making a big difference in our local community - Edmarc Hospice for Children!
In the last decade, the seaport city has undergone an extensive urban revitalization, drawing in artists and musicians from across the country. At the same time, Norfolk’s local entrepreneurs have remained resilient in keeping their businesses unique and unscathed by mass production. The result: a sweet harmony in what has become a thriving Coffee House Scene. At places like Bean There Café, Crema, Café Stella, Elliott’s Fair Grounds Coffee House, Chocollage, and a Latté Café lining the downtown district and Ghent, Norfolk’s resident artists congregate and enjoy regular musical performances. We recently created a coffeehouse map which encourages patrons to tailor their own “coffeehouse hop.”
