Introducing OQ First Fridays - July 3rd

Have you checked out First Fridays at OQ yet? Every first Friday of the month, we are hosting an event centered on music, art, coffee, or community. We want to be a community-centered coffee shop, and this is one way we are doing it!

The next one is Friday July 3rd, featuring local band the Wrong Side of Dawn. Check them out at

Save the date and bring a friend! This is looking like it will be a great one :)
