Let’s Get Coffee Introduction
My name is Ellington and my best friend is Lilli Babb. It was God, or Stephen Sondheim, that brought us together when we met seven years ago at a musical theatre camp. Since then Stephen Sondheim, or God, has kept us close together: We’ve maintained regular contact, went to the same college, and are both doing the very original thing of pursuing your dream in New York City. But once in the concrete jungle, we found ourselves seeing each other less and less.
Let’s Get Coffee is a personal blog but also a means to hold ourselves accountable for our friendship. Once a week, we meet at a different coffee shop and socialize. This might not sound groundbreaking, but it takes a surprising amount of effort to achieve.
Then, we write about it! If you’re reading, thank you. If you think this is ridiculous, let’s get coffee!
Ellington and I met in 2011 as wee ones at a theatre camp in Michigan. Since then, we have kept in touch and become best friends taking over the entertainment world one creative idea at a time... Or so we hope one day to do. Now both living in NYC, we were having trouble seeing one another due to our busy schedules. If you currently live or have ever lived here, you know how important it is to have your good friends close to get you through the insanity of this city.
Ellington came up with the wonderful idea to meet once a week for coffee (or tea if you get real bad coffee poops like me) and catch up on our marvelous and busy lives. To make it more exciting, we'll be documenting our dates and letting you all know just how amazing our friendship really is. I am looking forward to our adventures together as we explore coffee shops all over NYC.
