The full eclipse cafe

Posted on Mon, Nov 26, 2012 at 2:37 PM

On short winter days, the expansive bank of windows in one of my local cafes provides the best place in town for generous natural light, a sunny sip, an attractive view, and a generally glowing, upbeat atmosphere. (Great coffee, great service, and smart interior too). It has been a welcome break from the lecture hall, lab or dim apartment. However, too often, the entire cafe is transformed most of the day into a suffocating, dark, dismal, sooty, gloomy tech cave because of large, dense black mesh window shades that have been pulled down, seemingly to provide optimum clarity for a handful of dimlit social media victims or other individuals carrying out important "research" on their devices. It discourages a lot of otherwise regular customers. Get it right, bring back the light or stop offering paper copies of the Coast for us to attempt to read in this coffee coal mine. In the fervent hope that you can read this. —Vitamin D starved in Dracula's Ocean Playground
