Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce Message Board › Cafe Society
I have created a new meetup group called Cafe Society. The purpose is to invite individuals into the group to meet in local coffee houses and shops for discussion and tastes of different blends and styles of coffee. Cafe and shop owners are encouraged to be guest speakers at their place of business.
The following is the original description:
Cafe Society is not a new idea. In Beethoven's time in Vienna, great minds gathered over coffee, a beverage that only recently had eclipsed tea as the Viennese hot beverage of choice, to discuss all manner of cultural and intellectual concerns, face to face, undistracted. The Stock Exchange of that day was conceptualized and created in a local coffee house.
Coffee houses still exist today but Cafe' Society proposes a more social alternate to a computer screen. Discussion, locally produced art and music and good coffee and food. Need we say more?
I am open to suggestions and ideas for this new group.
