Well, I guess we're quite the little hot spot aren't we? Not 1 single place?

Then I nominate my house - I'm a literary hot spot unto myself!

In Providence there are a number of places where I've always managed to write quite a bit. Among these are Tazza Caffe (where I've met Mario Van Peebles, Wesley Snipes, Cybill Shepard, Joe Pantoliano et al. They have a habit of hiring dynamic and talented young people to tend the bar and the coffee. From late in the afternoon until they close at 1 or 2 AM, they are the coolest, most stimulating bar, with fine food. When they open at 7 AM, they are a distinctive cafe whose product outpaces nearly every other shop in town. Daren is the manager and when he is pulling shots on the gleaming La Marzocco, something special is being created, the least of which is the latte art. From about nine to just after the lunch rush, the highbacks, barstools and banquettes are a Galapagos of laptops. There is always someone to talk to about something interesting if you sit at the bar. Daren knows everything, Chris knows music, Duncan knows the movie business and, of course, everyone knows sex, religion and baseball.

Others are: The Coffee Exchange; Blue State Coffee; Olga's Cup and Saucer; White Electric; The Edge.
