Hunter Pence’s love for coffee is well documented, as are perhaps some less true facts about the San Francisco Giants All-Star right fielder. And now Pence is converting that love into a Houston coffee shop. Not just any coffee shop though. Pence is teaming up with Greenway Coffee’s David Buehrer–who already has another shop, Prelude Coffee, in the works–and Ming Chen, star of AMC’s Comic Book Men, to create Coral Sword: Coffee, Comics, & Games.
According to the press release, Coral Sword “will redefine expectations for inclusivity in gaming” by “combining indie board games, a curated comic selection, and specialty coffee and tea.” It will be a place for people across a wide spectrum of interests to come and nerd out. From the press release:
For Pence, Coral Sword is a chance to combine his two favorite off-the-field activities: coffee and gaming.
Coral Sword is scheduled to open in September of 2017. You can of course expect Sprudge to be there once they’re open to partake in yet another excellent cafe experience from Buehrer (who has yet to disappoint). And y’know, maybe play a little Magic: The Gathering while we’re there.
