A wonderful and very emotional night on Saturday… Dock Cafe will never be the same again without Little Boss!
It was powerful to hear so many stories of the thousands of ways that Tegan’s two years in The Dock touched so many lives. The cafe was packed with residents, students, local businesses, visitors – just some of the thousands of people who have found a warm welcome and a safe place to relax while Tegan served them a cuppa.
And so some of them had hatched a plan to tell her how much she meant to them:
This Saturday (8th March) at 7:30pm, you are invited to Dock Cafe for a night to remember…
Exactly two years ago, Tegan snipped the ribbon on this strange-looking pop-up cafe – a big empty shop unit with the dream of becoming the hub of a new community…
Two years, 100,000 cups of coffee, countless friendships, conversations and golden moments later, we’re gathering together to give thanks for Tegan, for two incredible years, and for DOCK Cafe – the centre of Life in the Titanic Quarter.
(And also to eat some birthday cake and lots of non-Lent-appropriate goodies!)
Whether you’re a regular customer or a first-timer, a Titanic Quarter resident, student, professional, local or visitor – everyone is welcome. See you there!
One of the first events in the diary for the lovely shiny DOCK Cafe 3.0 was a new venture called Singergy, which happened on Tue & Wed this week after the cafe was closed for the day.
Ian, the mastermind and maestro behind Singergy, had invited people from local businesses to call on their way home from work to sing together for an hour – with the promise that an unprepared, unpractised bunch of strangers would be singing in perfect harmony before going home for their dinner!
Was he successful? – see the link below and judge for yourself! – but there’s no doubting that it was amazing for the body, soul and spirit to lift our voices and make music at the end of a busy day.
