I think I've found "Cafe John." It's the cafe table and chairs in the cafe area of our local supermarket.
I have to do is ask them where they got theirs.
And speaking of writing, I'm starting a six-month hiatus from Wordos. I've attended the critique table for about six years and chaired the table for about four. It will be refreshing to not have to chair the Wordos critique table for a while. I plan to use the evenings as scheduled time where I absolutely must write.
In slightly different news, Writers of the Future is having their workship in Pasadena.
Now all I have to do is find cafes (and restaurants) in 91101.
