NARO

NARO
NARO Cinema in Norfolk, Va first opened February 24th, 1936 as the Colley Theater in Ghent. In the sixties the theater changed hands and the new owner, Robert Levine, changed the name of the theater from Colley to NARO, naming it after his father and mother, Nathan and Rose. Over the years the NARO has changed hands and use multiple times and now serves as a community gathering place for public audiences to experience new films, live music, speakers and public discourse.

Three Ships Coffee

Three Ships Coffee
Congrats to this week’s #757localbiz, @threeshipscoffee. Three Ships is a small, local, family-owned business that was established in July 2013 as Va Beach’s first Coffee Roaster. What makes Three Ships different from other roasters is their process. Small batches deliver a unique flavor you can’t get from mass production. You can sip their brew in Norfolk at Zeke’s Beans and Bowls, Handsome Biscuit or Westside Produce and Provisions or in Virginia Beach at Just Cupcakes. They’re looking for additional local wholesale partners. Drop them a line if you’re interested: [email protected] Photo by @egey.
