New Brew

12-05-05_0853As if there weren’t already enough reasons to stop at Planet K for all your holiday giftgiving needs, the S. Lamar location now has a coffee shop operating out back too. The good people from Grateful Shed are running the place, which offers a good variety of coffee / latte / espresso / chai drinks, plus smoothies and snacks.

Unfortunately there didn’t seem to be anyone home at the coffee stand this morning, so I’m still sleepy and bereft of any steamy caffeinated goodness to review. Their hours are rumored to be from 8:30am to 6pm, not taking into account the occasional Monday hangovers or new location kinks. If anyone’s checked out this spot or is familiar with the Grateful Shed’s coffee, chime in with an opinion. I’ll post an update once I track down some brew.

    Well if you need your fix, you can always detour to W. Mary and S 5th and pick up some brew at the new Cafe Caffeine. It seems to be just the place for the bookish crowd which seems fitting as it will soon be across from the relocated Twin Oaks library.

    Cafe Caffeine is worth a visit. The place has a lot of character for being located in a strip mall. Its decor is modern and the outdoor seating area is a peaceful setting providing a pleasant distraction from the adjacent parking lot. They have music on weekends too.

    Speaking of the Twin Oaks library, there will be a meeting to help plan the new facility @ 6:30 on Wednesday, January 11 (2006 … yikes!). Meet at the old South Fifth Post Office, corner of Mary and South Fifth.

    The Wife and I were just having a discussion about the Twin Oaks library this past weekend. The current location is so-named, I assume because of the shopping center in which it currently resides. But what gives that whole corner complex its name? Is it the two trees closer to the east end of the shopping center and facing Oltorf?

    I’m not enough of a tree person to know what an Oak looks like while passing in a car at 30mph, but they look like they could be twin oaks to me. Is there some history there? Perhaps someone objecting to chopping the trees down when the center was built? Anyone?

    It’s funny that I can drive by an area for 7 years and never contemplate why it’s named the way it is.
