Networking with social media professionals no longer requires a ride into NYC.
What We Are
The Social Media Coffeehouse is a monthly gathering of professionals and social media enthusiasts in Northern New Jersey. We meet to network, share our knowledge, and learn best practices. We have marketers, lawyers, programmers, authors, and more, so anyone is welcome to attend, enjoy a cup of coffee, and learn from our speakers.
Where We Meet
Our gatherings are held at The Fine Grind on Route 23 in Little Falls, NJ.

The coffee shop is in a shopping center just south of the intersection of Route 23 and Main Street, approximately 1/2 mile south of the Willowbrook Mall. Look for a pink “Piaza Farnese” sign if you’re having trouble finding the center.
How It Works
Each of our gatherings is separated into three activities:
- Presentations by guest speakers
- Panel discussions
We start and wrap up each gathering with open networking so that you can make connections and trade stories with other professionals. We’ll have 2-3 speakers presenting each month on a wide range of topics pertaining to social media. After each speaker has presented and fielded questions from the audience, we’ll gather them (along with any other special guests) and form an impromptu panel to discuss other topics in which the speakers or audience or interested.
What Does it Cost?
Our events are free and open to the public! However, we’re asking for a $10 donation per event to help defray our costs and raise money toward buying some cool toys, like a projector for our speakers to use. If you’re willing to donate, you’ll get a ticket for a free beverage from the Fine Grind, an entry into a future raffle at the Coffeehouse, and our thanks!
How You Can Get Involved
All you have to do to get involved is show up! Bring plenty of business cards to distribute while you network. We will occasionally have drawings for the audience as well, so make sure to save a business card!
If you’re interested in being a presenter or serving on the panel, we’d love to have you. E-mail kevin (at) socialmediacoffeehouse.com for more info. You’ll have a chance to advertise your company, website, latest book, etc.
Event info will be posted monthly. Keep visiting this website, subscribe to our RSS feed, or sign up on our mailing list to stay informed!
How Will I Stay Awake After a Long Day At Work?
We don’t call it the “Social Media Coffeehouse” for nothing. We meet at the Fine Grind, a coffee shop conveniently located in Little Falls, NJ. They have a wide array of caffeinated and non-caffeinated beverage available, as well as delicious sandwiches and desserts. Don’t worry about stopping for dinner before the vent, just come right over!
If you’re willing to donate $10 to help defray our costs, we’ll also thank you with a ticket for a free beverage!
What If I Have a Question or Suggestion?
