where everybody knows your name

For most of my life, or at least since I was old enough to watch shows like FRIENDS, I've always wanted a "place." You know, a neighborhood place, preferably a coffee shop, that I frequent enough where they know me and I know them. Doesn't everyone want that?? It's just so appealing isn't it?

In FRIENDS it was Central Perk

In How I Met Your Mother it's Maclaren's Pub

And of course the quintessential "place" Cheers

Well, I'm happy to announce that I think we finally have a "place"! When we moved here four years ago there were essentially zero coffee shops in our town, at least none within walking distance. Moving here from uptown where there is a coffee shop on every corner made this realization even worse! I'm sure I cried. 

A super cool neighborhood restaurant called Victory 44 added a coffee shop/cafe and it has become our place! I have been taking Max there once a week and we are trying to get to know the baristas and staff. We are not to the point yet where everybody knows our name, but we'll get there. We must. It's our Place!

I had a place like this back in New York- I loved that they knew me and my drink and if it had been a while since the last time I was there they asked where I had been. Very cool that you found one :)
