Anarchist Infoshop Celebrates Six Months

by SubRosa Collective (subrosa [at] riseup.net)
SubRosa is open 7 days a week, open at 8am on the weekdays, 10am on the weekend.
SubRosa has been open six months now. Woo woo! We weren't quite sure whether we could make it fly, but it seems to be chugging along. Thought I should tell you more about it.

Those looking for a good, strong, inexpensive cup of coffee are in luck. SubRosa is a refuge for the nearly extinct $1 cup of coffee served in your own mug. That's strong Java Bob's Organic Shade-grown Peruvian coffee, by the way.

Volunteers transformed a run-down warehouse space and bleak parking lot on lower Pacific into a cozy community and performance space with a large patio surrounded by a beautiful garden. Inside and outside, people gather around small tables for coffee and conversation, reading, talking, meeting, and enjoying performances and art.

SubRosa is open 7 days a week, open at 8am on the weekdays, 10am on the weekend. Closes at 8pm, unless there is an event. A nice quiet place to hang out in the mornings.

SubRosa is a non-profit space in downtown Santa Cruz for art and radical projects run by a collective of volunteers from the local anarchist community. It offers radical books and literature, gourmet coffee and tea, performance and a weekly open mic, gallery art by emerging local artists, and a garden courtyard social space. Free wi-fi and public computers are also available for use. A variety of radical community events are held at SubRosa, including monthly art shows, Free Skool classes and a weekly Open Mic on Thursdays at 8pm.

Literature for sale includes anti-authoritarian, ecological and anarchist books and zines. The space also houses the Anarchist Lending Library, featuring books on anarchy, Situationists, history, politics, ecology, indigenous studies, feminism and psychology that might not be available in the local library.

SubRosa is located next to the Bike Church, at Pacific Ave and Spruce.
