Here's what's coming up at Ula.

Patrick Coman Live!

Wednesday, May 27, 2015 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Patrick Coman plays the soundtrack for Saturday night sinning and Sunday morning redemption. Merging the bluesy barroom shuffle of his native Oklahoma with the poetic lyricism that pays a debt to the historically rich Cambridge folk scene, Coman has garnered fans in his adopted hometown of Boston and beyond opening for musical heavyweights of all stripes including Del McCoury, John Fullbright, Joan Osborne, and more.

His new album, "Reds and Blues", is available now! Click here.

Stop in and check him out, and hit up his website, patrickcoman.com.

Patrick Davis Live!

Thursday, May 28, 2015 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Patrick Davis, a veritable Pisces, is stuck between his own name and the moniker Chips Maloy. His raw bedroom folk is a unique blend of acoustic plucking, a whiskeyed growl, and world-weary lyrics. He can be spotted driving aimlessly around his hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota, blaring old country hits or 90's hip hop. Other influences include overheard conversations, postwar American literature, and caffeine. He's excited to share his sound with Boston for the first time ever.

Coffee Cupping

Sunday, May 31, 2015 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Ever been confused when you order a cup of coffee that is supposed to have notes of banana, cherry and chocolate and all you taste is coffee? Want to know more about the beans we use for our drip coffee and espresso? Join us and New Harvest for a cupping this month! Cupping is the practice of observing and evaluating the scent and taste of coffee. Kind of like a wine tasting, but for coffee. Look for a signup sheet by the register, and those who participate get a coupon for a free cup of drip coffee.

See you there!

JP Block Party

Sunday, June 14, 2015 - 2:00pm to 5:00pm

Boston Pride has returned with a vengeance! And once again, you're all encouraged to hit up the JP Block Party and shake your tail feathers. Of course, to help facilitate the tail feather shaking, Ula is offering a deal to get your sugared and caffeined up. Mention the Block Party and get a muffin, scone, or cookie PLUS a large (hot or iced) Depth Charge for $5! That's right, grab a snack and a coffee for $5 and go dance your pants off.

NOTE: We're closing early that day, so definitely come before the Block Party, not after.
