When I lived in Chicago, there was a great late-night coffee shop called New Wave Cafe in Logan Square that was perfect for after-work writing. I've been having a hard time finding a similar spot since moving to NYC. It doesn't need to be a coffee shop, but it does need to be well-lit enough that I can read, and calm enough that I won't be seen as preventing the establishment from doing business. Bonus points if the place has a neighborhood-y feel with a friendly staff. I live in Greenpoint, work in SoHo, and usually commute via bicycle over the Williamsburg Bridge. Any suggestions, Metafilter?

Bought a bottle of wine I can't stand to drink. Can't return it. Can I resell it somehow? Does Craigslist work? [more inside]

I was invited to a Passover seder tomorrow night with the request that each guest bring a personal bottle of wine for our own individual enjoyment. There was also this: "I would appreciate if your wine was not produced in occupied Palestinian territory." In the spirit of being difficult, I'd like to locate a wine produced in a state with an ongoing territorial dispute. Can you recommend one? [more inside]

Trying to find a good venue for a book club in NYC to meet - a coffeeshop or independent bookstore would be ideal, but certainly not necessary. The only real considerations are that it be public, not super-packed on Wednesday nights when we meet, and a place where we can either purchase or bring a bottle of wine - more inside. [more inside]
