The weather's cooled off quite a bit, so let's take it indoors and enjoy some coffee, conversation, and maybe a bite to eat at Zephyr Cafe on the east side of Pasadena. It's a cozy little place with a laid-back vibe. They have a couple small, semi-private rooms inside, so we'll try to grab one of those if possible. If not, we'll probably occupy one or two tables in the entrance area.
There is a parking lot in back, but it's very cramped and difficult to maneuver in, I do not recommend it. You can park in the lot of the car wash across the street, much easier, and street parking is also available. DO NOT PARK IN THE SUBWAY PLAZA LOT, THEY WILL TOW.
