I’ve had a fascination with Fair Folks & A Goat ever since I met Aurora Stokowski Mazzei in 2010 when I as working at Organicoa. Back then they had a location on the Upper East Side that was an apartment turned art gallery and community space. The pieces and the artists that Aurora and her husband Anthony curate are truly unique and inspiring. The first event I went to I was amazed by an artist called Ari Tabei who created her own “synthetic homes” to protect herself from the natural world.
A few weeks ago Aurora reached out and told me about their next endeavor; a new location on West Houston called Fair Folks US that would bring an artistic community space to Greenwich Village as well as fantastic coffee. What is unique about this space is that instead of being just a daily patron, you could actually be a member of the Fair Folks & A Goat community. Being an official member means getting your daily cup of joe (or espresso or lemonade) on the house each and every day, invitations to exclusive member events, a discount to their online shop, access to the amazing artistic community FF&G has already built, and just being able to visit a cafe that is not your typical coffee chain, but actually encourages intellectual conversation.
Membership is only $25 a month, but if you sign up with this code (rebc), you get $10 off the first month. Sign up for a membership here. The new Fair Folks location will be open in September, but I promise you, getting a membership early will have its benefits.
Fair Folks will be sharing their progress of building the new space through Facebook, Twitter, and their blog. Follow them and follow along with their story!
