Franny Lou’s Porch
March 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Sometimes we just need to kick back and enjoy ourselves while surrounded by our community. Welcome to The Blend, where Qunify heads out to a different coffee shop to talk about everyday things. We have no agenda, unless you count the “gay agenda”. Use this space as your own: come talk to us, use the excuse to meet a friend you haven’t seen in awhile, bust out some work in good company, sit down for a cute date, or just check out a new spot.
The Qunify team will be around from 1pm to 3pm. As for you… feel free to come and go as you please. Don’t be afraid to arrive early or stay late!
This time, we’re headed to Franny Lou’s Porch 💜 This is a warm space engaging in community activism, cultural awareness, and relational business practices; a vehicle for advocacy; and most importantly, a place of rest. It is a place to encourage those who want to be simple, healthy, and aware. Franny Lou’s Porch is also a window to and catalyst for the Black community, as well as other marginalized peoples. They build rich community members by educating and voicing their human experience, as well as how we are designed to grow & support one another. Their hope is to continue be a space where people can connect, rest, and mobilize.
Franny Lou’s Porch has two (2) steps leading up to the door. They also have an outdoor seating area and will provide table service to any customers who are unable to enter the shop due to the steps. There is a single use all gender restroom. The nearest Market-Frankford Line stop is the York Dauphin stop, a wheelchair accessible station, about 0.2 miles away. The 89 bus stops at Dauphin St & Coral St, about 469 ft away. The 5 bus stops at Frankford Av & York St, about 0.2 miles away. The 3 bus stops at Front St & Dauphin St, about 0.2 miles away.
