KJ's Coffee Bar, the spot at 1710 East 25th Avenue that's become a regular Whittier neighborhood hangout over the past ten months, will introduce later hours today -- until 9 p.m. on weekends and 10 p.m. on weekends.
And that's just the start of the changes, promises manager Kassia Koukari. KJ's just got its liquor license, and will be adding alcohol to the roster on July 10 -- a variety of local beers and seven types of wine (three red, three white and one sparkling) -- and also expanding its food offerings. Once all that's working, "we're looking to get more active with the community," she says, "and have spoken word nights, trivia nights, movie nights and maybe a local band play on weekends."
You grow, girl!
