A Cup of Common Wealth, 105 Eastern Ave., will celebrate its second anniversary on July 1 with a street party. The coffee shop, founded by Chris Ortiz and Salvador Sanchez, specializes in a "pay it forward" philosophy that allows patrons to buy cups for anyone they please and leave it there for later.
From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Eastern Avenue between the coffee shop and Thoroughbred Park will be blocked off. Cup of Common Wealth will have a free breakfast at 9 a.m., plus tables for local businesses and non-profits. There will be drawings for prizes such as gift cards and mugs. Local food trucks will be there for lunch and dinner.
