Benefit planned for Urban Bean barista

Posted by: Tom Horgen under Nightlife Updated: July 19, 2012 - 11:29 AM

Urban Bean barista Matt Call was struck by a hit-and-run driver near the Lyndale coffee shop on June 27. His injuries included two broken legs and spinal fractures (read more here). With his recovery expected to be long and arduous, his friends in the coffee and music scenes (he plays bass) have come to his aid. On Tuesday, a benefit will be held at Urban Bean owner Greg Martin’s loft (starting at 5 p.m.). Basically, it’s going to be one amazing party — and for a good cause. On the first floor, DJs will spin music while members of the North Star Bartender’s Guild will mix up some fine cocktails. There’s also a silent auction. The second floor will host the night’s live music, plus more drinks by Kieran Folliard’s 2 Gingers Irish Whiskey. The $20 tickets are by donation and must be purchased in advance. Buy them here. Attendees will receive the location address after buying a ticket. All ticket proceeds will go to Call.
