Day #124: Dramarama – “Scenario”
As reported on the DC-based Prince of Petworth blog, Filter Coffeshop & Espresso Bar has opened a location in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. (That’s near George Washington University). Typically pretentious as that name might sound, the shop has begun an interesting social experiment, encouraging social interaction over the usual scene of patrons transfixed by their gadgets. It is certainly a test of will power, but can a coffee shop that discourages (nay, prohibits?) customers from staring at screens survive, especially, in this city?
How do I know? They only just opened.
