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!
