Redesign the Mosaic Den

The whole idea just seems too wacky to be true: a delicious coffeehouse with pastries where you pay whatever you want (or nothing at all, if you think that’s fair), big comfortable chairs, a well appointed children’s playroom and a community gathering space available for whoever needs it. But the Mosaic Coffeehouse is stranger than fiction.

Now, a group of folks are going to give something back. Amy Woidtke, Jessie Wolfrum, and Amy Darling, all members of the Fremont-based Biznik business network (“Business networking that doesn’t suck”) are pitching in to redesign the somewhat drab community room at Mosaic.

We, a small group of enthusiastic, hardworking Bizniks, have the blessing of Mosaic to redesign The Den; to better manifest Mosaic’s original vision, which never manifested due to budget constraints. We’re infusing lots of creative juice, while giving pragmatic attention to optimize The Den’s function for group meetings. We’re giving back to this organization which regularly offers the community so much and too often receives not enough in return.

They’re kicking it off with a fundraising party on April 29th, 5:30 pm – 9:30 pm that will include “a feast of tasty morsels provided by culinary divas Rachel Duboff {thyme to Nourish}, Lesa Sullivan {Lesacooks}, and Chef Sadie Laurenti Whitley {La Cucina Laurenti},” a raffle, sketches of the Mosaic Den Redesign and more. See the Biznik event page for more info. As of this writing, there are 37 Bizniks signed up to attend, so it looks like it will be quite the party.

    I’ve avoided Mosaic because of its church affiliation, but I like the idea.

    I love Mosaic and I’m so happy to learn it’s still in operation! The playroom was a life saver when my children were little. I live abroad now (Copenhagen) but when I return to our house on Densmore Street, I’m sure to be a regular at Mosaic once again. (Now if they would only serve gluten free pastries…) :-)

    Michael Dare said (pasted from a miss-post, but relevant to the Mosaic conversation),
    “The chairs are incredibly comfortable, the lamps beautiful, the tables just right, even the rugs and fake fireplace are comfy and cozy. Redesign Mosaic? Completely unnecessary. It’s great the way it is. “
