Coffee-and

For as long as I can remember, my Grandma has used this phrase to describe a get-together - "coffee-and." And even though she hasn't lived there in years, she'll still say it in her Brooklyn-accent, "Why don't you c'mon over & we'll have some coffee-and?" It never used to faze me until I was around …
