I am traveling to Dallas/Ft Worth soon to look for a place in the Ft Worth/west area. I bought a laptop with wifi largely for the occasion (had wanted a laptop for a long time, but had no justification). And I have already found the online stuff I need. It’s just that I am somewhat dreading that I’ll go into a coffeehouse to use the wifi and I’ll have to order something, and all they’ll have to drink is coffee , , , , ,
. . . . .-which I hate.
So I am expecting to ask for a glass of coke/pepsi but “we don’t have that”, so I’ll ask for a $5 glass of water and tip the waitress $5, and ask her to bring me another glass of expensive water in a half-hour…
Have you tried ordering Hot Chocolate, tea, Chai, or a snack. Any would still burn up your wallet, but at least it would not be $5 for a cup of water, when you can buy economy sized jugs/bottles of the stuff for much less.
Oh, and I am LOLing about some of the comments made.
I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to wear such a shirt; unless I didn’t get the joke. In a more mainstream coffee shop, someone might try and berate you for wearing a t-shirt that smacks of philosophical immaturity, but my impression of Emma’s is that the clientele know how idealistic their own views were, and would not try and criticize your views.
Tea! It’s tea they have, right? I hate tea too… What is it with suburban hippies wanting to drink dead plants? Is there a dress code? Do I need long hair and birkenstocks or a bad-fitting Nader-suit to enter? Are non-Mac computers allowed? I have a peg-leg and an eye patch, but I can get a tye-dye shirt if it’ll help me blend in…
And heck, you can spam me by email if you want. It’s fairly justifiable. I’ll probably just try the nearest places to wherever I can get a hotel room otherwise.
I just recently moved to the Mt. Vernon area and I had been wondering about that place. ScottPlaid thanks for info! I will be checkign the joint out this week now.
mhendo: Appreciate the info regarding screenings they do there. I am thinking of going tonight for the “Made in Secret” screening tonight. Quick question though as you appear to be in the know…Is this something you pay a fee to attend or a monthly fee? Or can I just show up?
