Great news, trekkies: Voyager celebrates its 20th anniversary today! January 16th of 1995 marked the first episode of this intrepid series. This is especially exciting as it also marks the anniversary of the appearance of Star Trek’s first female captain and star of Voyager, Kathryn Janeway, played by Kate Mulgrew.
Star Trek has had female captains before Janeway, but she was the only woman to serve as the lead character in a series. She later went on to become a Starfleet Admiral. Read More

Like a band of superheros in bicycle caps, the guys at Kickstand are here to save the day from that murky brown water the bodega calls coffee. Their custom-made, collapsible stand allows them to move freely around New York, serving those in need. Each cup is ground and brewed individually using a hand-mill and altered Chemex drip cones because Kickstand believes in giving the community the freshest, most delicious coffee possible.
Kickstand coffee will make an appearance at the BUST Craftacular this Sunday, May 23 in Brooklyn. Read More

Sunday! Craftacular! If you haven't noticed, we're getting pretty stoked for this weekend's event.
