As the sign below shows, Celebrate Cafe has moved out of the Bowery Poetry Club....
The Cafe, operated by the Lower Eastside Girls Club, is an entrepreneurial and job training program that employs local youth and young adults. The Café held its grand opening in June. As BoweryBoogie noted at the time, "A nice symbiotic relationship on the Bowery." I said as much in an e-mail to Lyn Pentecost, executive director and co-founder of the Girls Club. I asked her for a comment. “It wasn’t as good a fit as it appeared to be. We look forward to seeing our friends again on Ave.C — same great coffee and cupcakes!”
Celebrate Cafe will be moving back to 136 Avenue C, site of their Sweet Things Bake Shop.
As for the Bowery Poetry Club, no word on potential new tenants. At the beginning of the year, the East Village Visitors Center & Cafe moved after some 10 months here. They teamed up with Fourth Arts Block and the Cooper Square Committee on East Fourth Street.
