Rochester Brainery marks its fourth year

Rochester Brainery marks its fourth year

The Rochester Brainery—a community classroom and event space—is celebrating its fourth year in operation on Saturday, March 4th from 6 to 9 p.m. at its new location at 176 Anderson Ave.

Danielle Raymo co-founded Rochester Brainery in 2013 after getting inspiration from a similar operation in Brooklyn.

Today the Rochester Brainery runs over 40 classes and/or events on a monthly basis.

It was recently named the “Most Geek-Friendly Business” in Rochester in City Newspaper’s Best of Rochester awards, according to the organization.

“What started as a dream has turned into a full-time business,” Raymo said in a statement. “I’m so proud that Rochester Brainery has become a space for members and makers in the Rochester community to learn, to connect and to grow. I look forward to continued growth for Rochester Brainery and the Rochester community,” she said. 

The celebration event will feature a Flower City Philanthropy’s birthday card-making station. All cards are being donated to the Volunteers of America Brightening Birthdays program, which holds birthday parties for families who have experienced or are experiencing homelessness, according to the Brainery.

Tiny Fish Printing will provide birthday themed screens for the birthday cards.

Other parts of the event include:

  • The Fourth Annual BATs (Brainery Aptitude Test), offering a chance to win a Bachelor Membership to Rochester Brainery ($225 value) and other prizes.
  • Food and drinks: Cookies from Scratch Bakeshop, snacks and beverages from Peerless Events of Rochester, a mocktail from flavor ID and coffee from Ugly Duck Coffee
  • A photo booth courtesy of Hype Booth
  • Decor by Hannah Betts Moncibaiz

The event is free and open to the public.
