Seen & Heard: Free Coffee Next Week

••• For anyone worried he or she would have to walk more than three storefronts on Murray without having access to a beer, never fear: The Copper Barrel, a new restaurant/bar/beerhouse, is coming to 8 Murray (between Church and Broadway). Happy hour is 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and all day on Sunday. Plus: white Zin and frickles, which I now know are fried pickles.

••• From TheDealist: $30 for three 55-minute boxing lessons at Church Street Gym.

••• Help a reader out: “I’m looking for an indoor basketball court to take my son to on the weekends. I live in Tribeca.  So far my research has come up empty (Chelsea Piers rents their courts out on the weekends). Any thoughts of a school or rec center that allows the public to use their facilities for a fee?”

••• From the Harrison: “February 18, we will be doing a special service. Chef Michael Schwartz of Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink [Good restaurant! —Ed.] in Miami will be will be joining us for “Michaels’ Genuine at The Harrison.” He will be preparing a few of his signature dishes along with Jimmy, Steve and Justin. We will offer a menu of 3 to 5 of Michael’s dishes along with our full menu.”

••• Yorganic will be giving away coffee Feb. 21–26 (that’s next week, Monday to Saturday).

••• Gilt City has a deal for the Pinot Noir Walkaround at Tribeca Grill.

••• Pen Parentis has announced a new book club, The Literate Parent: “Combine your knowledge and experience in parenting with your love of reading in this book club focused exclusively on great books written by authors who have kids of their own. Discuss the ways in which parenthood might have influenced the author in writing his or her book. Discussions are led by prize-winning author and Pen Parentis executive director, M. M. De Voe, herself a mother of two and Lisa Garrigues, award-winning writer and author of Writing Motherhood. The following week, participants are invited to join Pen Parentis Literary Salons with the authors themselves.”
