Local Coffee Shop Nonsense

I mention this not because it is especially relevant or earth-shattering, but because I have just recently heard it and just recently had it verified by people who would know: Inman Perk‘s location in Inman Park is apparently on the move. Sometime, uh, soonish (?) the great polished-concrete location with the full-length walls of shelves and brilliant decorating sliding walls will be gone, replaced by yet another pile of condos. Inman Perk isn’t going far, though — sounds like they’re opening a new spot just a stone’s throw away, in one of the new retail spaces that’s also been laid down around that intersection.

I have to wonder, though… if the atmosphere changes, will I keep going back? One reason I visit Inman Perk is because I wish my workplace was all polished concrete, sliding walls and coffee mugs. Without all that stuff, it’s mostly the staff that’ll keep me coming back. So let’s hope that enough of them make the move. ‘Cause if I were to get the kind of service I got today (which is to say, ugh) in an atmosphere that wasn’t both productive and cunning, I probably wouldn’t be a customer.

Meanwhile, ParkGrounds, in Reynoldstown, has a really very handsome new website to go with the new for-humans patio they’ve just built in their off-leash dog park area. That website? Full of pictures of cute dogs. Fair warning.

I really haven’t given ParkGrounds enough first-hand traffic, so remind me to head back in there as soon as possible. Three simple pleasures that hit me right in the furry-footed Hobbit part of my brain — the part that thinks sitting around would be a great way to spend one’s life — are coffee, dogs and breakfast cereal. So ParkGrounds has my number, there.

So, there you have it. This post written in lieu of actual, you know, content.

    Side note I guess, but Inman Perk has opened up a shop in Emory Village next to Everybody’s pizza.

    I’m glad it’s moving because, notwithstanding the nice staff, the building is a total hole and its cincer-block walls are uninspiring. This is a building that few can love. Vive la change! JS

    Hey, I didn’t know about a new location up in Emory. I’ll have to go check that out.
