It’s time! It is our great pleasure to announce TNT NYC: New York City’s monthly Thursday Night Throwdown Series. On the third Thursday of each month, a different shop somewhere in the Five Boroughs will host a no-holds-barred, single-elimination latte-art throwdown for glory, bragging rights and a host of sweet prizes. There’s a twist, though: TNT NYC will be a championship series, with the first six throwdowns of the season leading up to a seventh and final championship throwdown, with higher stakes, better swag and the chance to be the first to take home the TNT NYC championship trophy!
We’re stoked to be partnering with the following shops to bring you the first season of TNT NYC:
August 18th – Third Rail Coffee
September 15th – Everyman Espresso
October 20th – TBA
November 15th – RBC NYC
December 15th – TBA
January 19th – Dora
February 15th (Final) – TBA
Buy in for each throwdown will be $5, though competitors are encouraged to donate as much as they want: all proceeds will be donated to Bikes to Rwanda; prizes are being donated by our generous sponsors. The four semifinalists from each of the first six throwdowns will be automatically entered into the final, with the remaining spots open to the public.
Stay tuned! We’ll be releasing more details in the coming weeks, leading up to the season opener at Third Rail. We can’t wait to see you all there! Join us, and rep your shop, your hometown, and the greatest city on the planet!
