This Internet Thing is Really Taking Off!

web-pscs-seniors-and-kids-2After more than two years, Speakeasy’s Internet business had grown substantially enough that it was time to move the network staff into new digs. They found a location right up the street, at 2222 2nd Ave, which had once been the home to a theater and currently housed a variety of small studio spaces used by artists and live music promotion companies.

Like the cafe before it, Speakeasy’s new space required a lot of elbow grease to convert it from its previous purpose into an office. It also required Mike and Tyler Apgar to pose as two city officials so that they could run network cabling in between the cafe and the new offices.

The cafe’s arts program continued to flourish, while the establishment of The Foundry enabled Speakeasy to reach out to local nonprofits and promote technical education within the community.
