The roommate and I need a place to get some work done tonight. We've been working at the excellent CityGrounds coffee bar
, but unfortunately they close at 5 on Sundays. I've tried scouring the Web for places that fit my requirements, but independent coffee shops are the kind of place that come and go with such frequency it's difficult to know if postings even a year or two old are up to date.
I'm looking for a place that is absolutely
- Not a Starbucks. (Nothing against Starbucks: in fact, we've been to so many, we would like a change);
- Open until at least 9 pm. 10 pm is even better;
- In the city of Chicago.
- With wifi.
- Not a Caribou Coffee.
- With good
- On the North/Northwest sides - we have a car so are pretty flexible
- A great working environment (lots of tables, space)
But I can compromise on any of these, so please let me know if there are places even if they don't quite match the preferences.
And to be honest, beverage quality is not really at all important, although it'd be nice if they had tea in addition to coffee.
Does this place exist? Let me know!
I apparently am frequently looking for places to work, but unfortunately such are the travails of being a grad-student-hopeful without a library to work in.
