The first of a monthly series of coffee breaks will take place on Thursday, with proceeds to benefit Lakewalk restoration, the Greater Downtown Council announced.

The event will be from 10-11 a.m. at Gitchi ode’ Akiing / Lake Place Park. Easy access is available from the Lakewalk or via Superior Street across from the NorShor Theatre.

Billed as “Duluth’s Largest Coffee Break,” it’s sponsored by Starbucks and The Greenery. Suggested donation is $5.
