‘Java with Joe’: Queens state senator to host meet and greet in Ridgewood


State Senator Joseph Addabbo will be holding a meet and greet event in Ridgewood this month for constituents to discuss any community issues they are facing.

The “Java with Joe” event will be held on Sunday, Aug. 29, at the Cute Cat Café, located at 6669 Fresh Pond Rd., from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Addabbo has done these meetings since 2019 as a way to make himself more accessible to constituents, since it’s outside of normal business hours. Usually, around five to 20 people show up to these Java with Joe events. 

“I love these Java with Joe events because it gets me out into the district, right into the communities, to hear directly from the people about whatever issues they may be facing,” Addabbo said.
