I went to a "Freelance Friday" event in April that was hosted at Church Alley Coffee on OC Haley Blvd. in New Orleans. I remember getting a lot of work done and meeting some cool people, but I don't remember being as overwhelmed as I appear in the below photo. Also, I'm looking "rounder" than I think I've ever been. The coffee at Church Alley is pretty good and there are two Little Free Libraries, one outside and one inside, so that's pretty impressive. There's a store upstairs that I meant to check up but still haven't, and the back of the space is the Zeitgeist Theater, which is pretty awesome, too.
Either way, glad to be a new face of gentrification/gentrificoffee in Central City.
