Do we know there's an internet cafe coming to the 500-block of Yates beside Ferris'? Because there is.

 

It's not an internet cafe, trust me.

Ok, yeah, I thought there was something up. I ran into the owner of the building a week or two back and he said something very cool was on the way. Then all of a sudden a rather hilarious window covering appears.

The image on that Internet Cafe is the cover of this book: http://www.amazon.co...t/dp/0439148243

 

I've seen it used on hipstery t-shirts before, so I'd bet good money it's a joke.

I overheard heard some people talking on the sidewalk in front. It looked like it was a meeting of some kind and they were saying Internet cafe, coffee shop with a dispensary...

I heard something similar but it's relly hard to tell - does anyone know who's involved?

I confess. It was me shoplifting the Christmas store. I just couldn't help myself with each new sign.... My Christmas wish was for a big on on the front door that simply said **** Off!
