Playground Coffee Shop is a local community space and cafe focused on “social and conscious awareness,” according to its website. It’s located at 1114 Bedford Avenue, between Lexington and Quincy. Here are more details: “In our neighborhood, we provide a space for local activists to organize around poignant issues. In aiding the community we exist in, we not only want to alter the thinking of the community but of the entire culture.”

If you’re interested in getting involved or seeing what they’re about, there’s a chance this weekend. Playground Youth, a nonprofit associated with the cafe, is hosting an event to promote the organization’s goal to “exchange art, cultural knowledge, and strategies for healthier, safer lives.”
