The Makeshift Society is expanding to the East Coast, and hopes to open doors in New York in 2014. The "coworking space and clubhouse for creatives" located at 235 Gough Street has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a Brooklyn location. The organization offers classes on drawing, writing, creating an indie magazine and more, and hosts parties and happy hours for maker types. [Hayeswire]
