Though I get my caffeine fix from Diet Coke and don't really give a shit about coffee, I *do* love a good fight. And it seems like one is brewing at Cafe Regular.
The other day I received the following email:
Hey there --
The regulars of the coffee shop Cafe Regular (the original 5th Ave location) are in an uproar! Martin O'Connell, the longtime and legendarily sarcastic wizard of the espresso machine, was apparently ousted by his sister suddenly this week. And renovations are planned for this holiday weekend, including the introduction of a computer, uniforms for the staff etc. A drastic about-face for this much-loved, low-key neighborhood spot.
Maybe your blog could get to the bottom of these sudden changes? Thank you!
Thankfully Grub Street beat me to the punch (hint: its an old fashioned family feud!). Read all about it...
