I don’t know when I started going there, but it has to have been several years now. I love their green tea and their Volcan coffee. They have sesame bagels.
They attract artsy people like me and many friends of mine.
There are times I have sat in Dagny’s and talked to people all morning: different people rotating in and out, listening to music, eavesdropping on conversations, writing poetry about the characters who show up there.
They expanded recently and Cameron and I have taken to meeting there to grade papers together. I see other academic people there, too, with stacks of pages with marks on them. It helps to have a place to go with tasks to do so being shut up in your home won’t distract you from the task at hand.
I love the smells there, the staff is cool and they even
serve beer so on those days when coffee won’t do, a shock top is a
welcome change. I have held Sunday rehearsals there, line throughs, which turn into social events and help break through any awkwardness between cast members.
I am grateful for Dagny’s, as strange as that may seem, for being a calm and chaotic resting place for me when I need a break from my home office. AND! I love the extension recently in place. Yes. I am grateful.....
