Tugboat Pulls Into Harbor

Espresso lovers, your wait is nearly over. Tugboat, the little coffee-engine that could, is ready for its closeup. The Q was in the joint today enjoying the company of co-owners and longtime Brooklynites Chad and Kola as they plotted their opening once the ink dries on their permits. The place is on Flatbush just north of the elegant ristorante chez Gino's. Could be as early as Saturday...stay posted for info on the Grand Opening. Gentlemen, start your grinders.

We have been walking all the way to Steeplechase in Windsor Terrace for coffee on the weekends. This will be a most welcome addition to the neighborhood.

Tugboat's address is 546 Flatbush Avenue.

One request of the new Tugboat owners: please don't put outlets within reach of the tables. Battery life is the only way to enforce a limit on laptop squatting. I'd hate to see the place turn into an encampment of tumblr drones.

Wow! this got a different response than Beauty Feel Supply.

Lovely! I stopped by tonight--they seem lovely, and their grand opening is tomorrow (Saturday 1/5). They're going to be open 8-8 on weekends and 7-7 on week days.
