July 13 is the eve of Barista Nation New Orleans, and Stumptown Coffee Roasters is hosting a Wednesday Edition of Thursday Night Throwdown to kick off the festivities. Witness the fury and power of the pour as both local and visiting baristas throw down in hopes of being named victorious.
Sign up begins at 7:30 pm ($5 to pour) and the action starts at 8:30 pm. Thursday Night Throwdown is always open to the public, even when it happens on a Wednesday, so tell your patrons and bring your friends.
Please note this is not a BYOB event, though beverages may be purchased through the Ace Hotel bar and restaurant.
