Thursday Night Throwdown at Fayetteville’s Good Living Coffee Zone

Calling all espresso and latte experts! Good Living Coffee Zone and Barista Magazine invite local baristas to participate in this month’s Thursday Night Throwdown (TNT) at Good Living Coffee Zone’s Marketfair shopping center location on Feb. 22 from 7-9 p.m. The barista with the perfect pour will win a pile of cash and the title of Fayetteville’s latte art champion!

For a $5 entry fee, baristas compete before three judges to create the most impressive latte art in a given time limit. The barista with the most votes will move onto the next round, and the TNT champion wins all the money in the pot. Not a barista? You don’t have to be a latte artist to appreciate a good show and a great cup of coffee! All TNTs are free for anyone to watch, so bring a friend and come watch the baristas battle it out.

Baristas can sign up by posting on the Facebook event page or by emailing glczllc@goodlivingcoffeezone.com. Baristas can also sign up by arriving at Good Living Coffee Zone at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22. Good Living Coffee Zone hosts TNT only once a month, so you don’t want to miss out!

Good Living Coffee Zone’s February TNT is sure to be an evening of artistic fun, whether you’re a barista who wants to show off your skills or a coffee connoisseur who wants to have a “latte” of fun. Start practicing your pours, baristas!

Saving Lives with Marketfair at Our Upcoming Blood Donation Drive

Did you know that someone is in the need of blood every two seconds in the United States? That means 43,200 Americans per day could die without access to donated blood. At Marketfair, we take those numbers seriously.

We’re teaming up with Cape Fear Valley Health for our first annual blood donation drive on Saturday, Jan. 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The blood drive will be held at Good Living Coffee Zone in Marketfair shopping center on Skibo Road.

Join us by selecting a time for your donation appointment here, or you can call Good Living Coffee Zone at (910) 475-8630. Make sure to bring along photo identification and eat a nutritious meal before your donation! To show our appreciation, donors will receive a special gift while supplies last. And, remember: donating a single pint means you could save up to three lives.

We can’t wait to see all of our life-saving Fayetteville donors there!
