free coffee and ice-cream at our garage

During fashion week in New York, we decided to do a kind gesture and give out free coffee, ice-cream, and copies of Garage to passersby.  The truck was manned by one very stylish young Puerto-Rican woman, who also drove the truck and made the coffee.  The highlight of Cafe Garage was giving free ice-cream and tattoos to fire-fighters on September 11th.  The most wonderful aspect of this was making people smile, as they were receiving something for free for no reason… And a smile goes a very long way.
