Mark Capriotti and Mark Corpus, founders of Fishtown’s artisan roasters ReAnimator Coffee, want to open a retail front and cafe. And they’ve found a home for it on the same six-spoked intersection where East Norris Street overlaps Susquehanna Avenue, and Loco Pez and Cedar Point Bar & Kitchen inhabit its outer rim. But they need help getting there. Tonight they present plans before the neighborhood’s zoning committee to gain the community’s approval, a necessary precursor to getting the city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment’s to sign off on the project. They’re asking neighborhood caffeine achievers and others sympathetic to the cause to turn out in support of their cafe. The committee meets at 7:30 p.m. at the Fishtown Rec Center, located at 1202 East Montgomery Avenue.
