TNTNYC at City of Saints, Brooklyn

Hello everyone, Panda here with a photo recap of TNTNYC at City of Saints.

Last week City of Saints in Brooklyn opened up their roastery and cafe space for TNTNYC! A huge crowd gathered for the the free pizza, free beer, and of course latte art. Latte art is pretty amazing but so are the people who show up to these events which is why I decided to low-key shoot a few candid portraits of the crowd. Thanks to all the sponsors and to @newyorkblackcoffee & TNT_NYC for the additional shots.
