The Blogger community celebrated the first ever Blogger’s Ball with Gregory’s Coffee on Tuesday, March 27th at their 46th Street Location. Those who attended were treated to a sampling of how owner, Gregory Zamfois, “sees coffee differently” among his digital technorati guests. Gregory wanted to honor the tremendous online community who, let’s face it, got their start among many of the numerous coffee shops, with a specialized event tailored for them.
To help kick off the night’s festivities, Gregory put together an exclusive awards ceremony, honoring some of his favorite blogs and bloggers. The winners included:
- Aldo Singer with Independent Media Mag for best Music Blog
- Tereza Nemessanyi with Honestly Now for best Online Advice
- Jonathan Valdez with Orange Juice and Biscuits for best Fashion Blog
- Cindy Hui with Looky Tasty for best Foodie Blog
- Jonathan Lee Mills with Justin Ross Lee for Best Self Promoter
- Yvonne Lee with Socially Superlative for best Night Life Blog
Guests were also treated to some signature cocktails including the Irish Greg, which was a delicious blend of iced coffee, a shot of espresso and Bailey’s. They were taught about Gregory’s philosophy as he plans to compete with powerhouses like Starbucks and Think Coffee by offering great customer service. “It’s less about putting them out of business and more about putting something new out into the marketplace. I wanted to bring the third wave to midtown,” he says.
Of his first Bloggers Ball, he says, “the support from the blogger community has been tremendous at our 4 NYC locations. We continue to strive in providing them with free Wi-Fi and a place they can call ‘their office’. ”
