A collaboration between Lakewood coffee shops has brewed up a unique community celebration centered around coffee and art.

The Lakewood Coffee Shop Hop takes place Sunday, April 15, from 2 to 5 p.m. at seven participating coffee shops. This free-to-attend event will showcase student artwork with the launch of a contest-winning ink drawing turned coffee cup design by Lakewood High School senior Micah Inak. Each shop will offer their products in this cup, while also displaying artwork created by students from the Lakewood City Schools.

Shops participating in the Lakewood Coffee Shop Hop on April 15 are:
• Addicted – 13743 Madison Avenue
• Blackbird Baking Company – 1391 Sloane Avenue
• Goodkind Coffee – 15526 Madison Avenue
• Ice Cream Joy – 15210 Madison Avenue
• Nature's Oasis - 15613 Detroit Avenue
• Rising Star Coffee Roasters – 13368 Madison Avenue
• the Root Cafe – 15118 Detroit Avenue

The festivities kick off with a brief reception at 2 p.m. at the Root Cafe to honor Micah, whose ink drawing was selected as a winner during the Ninth Congressional District Invitational Art Competition orchestrated by U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur. The ink drawing was then adapted to a coffee cup design as a collaboration between local businesses and the art community. Following this reception, guests are encouraged to visit each coffee shop in any order they choose to view students’ artwork and have their “Coffee Passport” (Micah’s coffee cup) stamped at each location to be eligible for a gift card drawing.

Rep. Kaptur – who recently became the longest-serving woman in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives – will make an appearance during the Lakewood Coffee Shop Hop.

The student artwork will remain on display at each coffee shop for at least one week following April 15. A portion of the proceeds from each shop’s coffee cup sales during the Lakewood Coffee Shop Hop will be donated in support of the arts program at the Lakewood City Schools.

In addition to the seven participants in the Lakewood Coffee Shop Hop on April 15, the following three shops will also have Micah's coffee cup on hand during the week of April 16-20:
• KB Confections of Lakewood - 13519 Detroit Avenue
• Play Grounds - 15715 Madison Avenue
• The Tea Lab - 14534 Detroit Avenue

Guests who visit at least four participating coffee shops starting April 15 and submit their Coffee Passport to the Root Cafe by noon on Friday, April 20, will be entered into a drawing to win gift cards from participating cafes. The drawing will take place at 5 p.m. on April 20 at the Root Cafe and contestants need not be present to win.
