New York Coffee FestivalFlushing, NY – We’re now in the seventh inning and on a night that has gotten chillier, I’m over at Citi Field shivering because of coldness and excitement of a possible Mets comeback.

Down 1-0, the New York Mets and Minnesota Twins have provided us an entertaining night of baseball. For the Mets, they’re trying to return to the postseason. In order to keep their chances alive, they’re facing a Twins team who is playing for P-R-I-D-E… pride.

Mets RHP Seth Lugo (4-2) failed to win his fifth consecutive game as he left the game after five innings of work. Out of the 91 pitches Lugo threw that inning, the one to Eddie Rosario will be the one that could possibly give him his third loss of the season.

One ill-advised pitch that lead to Rosario’s 10th home run of the season shows you how cruel baseball is. No one’s going to remember the other 90 pitches he threw and the 51 that counted for strikes.

Granted in allowing four walks, he threw 16 balls and with the four hits he allowed overall, the one he gave up Rosario will be the one fans of both teams will be talking about.

We’re now in the bottom of the second and the Mets have loaded up the bases. Batting now for New York is Michael Conforto who has the opportunity to drive in a run or four and get Seth Lugo off the hook. The crowd is standing and chanting, “Let’s Go Mets!” Here’s the pitch… ball. Here’s the second pitch… almost a balk.

Twins RHP Earvin Santana just walked off the mound to regroup and Lord knows what he’s thinking. After a seven strong innings where he’s only allowed four hits and struck out eight batter, he’s on the verge of allowing the game-tying… never mind, Michael Conforto struck out swinging. With that said, let’s talk about the New York Coffee Festival.

I love coffee. I make it, I drink it and I make some more. Saturday was the second day of the New York Coffee Festival. Founded by Allegra Events Ltd., today’s event took place at the 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, coffee & networking is what powers our city. This is a city where majority of us have to hustle from the first day of the month to the last day in order to pay our bills by the first of the next month.

Along with the coffee tasting and workshop opportunities, the New York Coffee Festival is excellent event to learn about the personal, technological and historical stories of coffee.

This event is also about recognizing the Music, Art and Charities that was inspired over several cups of coffee. With over 70 coffee, food and equipment suppliers, artists, musicians and many more, the networking opportunities is there. If you can attend, go!

If not, go grab a cup of coffee and start mingling like you’re single!
