Free Advice + Coffee

A friend of mine had posted on her facebook wall a link to this incredibly interesting project one man had done. He set up a stand on a busy urban street with a sign that said “Free Advice + Coffee” (in Danish, though, as this was in Copenhagen) and for one week, five hours a day, simply gave coffee and advice. By the end of the week, he found himself being a different person because of this. You can visit this link here for photos and his commentary on the project.

Part of me wants to try this out, though I know that the Chicago police will require I have some sort of a street performers license or food distributing license of some sort. Better to beg forgiveness than ask permission, though, right?

    First off we have the same design theme, yes! 🙂
    This is interesting. Im going to look into the info more, bc I think this is fantastic and I am interested to know more about how it changed him and what the experience was like. Also, you should do it. Itd be awesome. However you just made me want to puke by saying “Better to beg forgiveness than ask permission” (even though that is true).
