    Excellent place to sit down to read a book, write in a notebook, or sit outside with a pitcher of sangria on a really nice day. People are also usually smoking weed outside.

    I've always loved this place for its laid back vibe of hippies, jazz aficionados, pot smoking neighbors...It's getting a little over run with hipsters, but go here for local music and a good beer

    Need a break today? Head to Revolution and throwback to the days when a coffeeshop was a gathering place for conversation and personal interactions. It's a great spot to people watch if you're alone. Read more

    Nice and cozy daily lives music spot! Good beer selection, not so much other beverages and make sure you bring your cash and ID!

    Dog friendly patio with an eclectic crowd and live music. Reasonably priced. Also free wifi, if you must work.

    Live music makes this a cool place for tunes + people watching, but not an ideal venue if you're hoping to work or chat with someone!

    Busy with an eclectic mix of people, so come early. Also great place to come alone to people watch or with a couple friends.

    Live music every night at 9pm. Foursquare has details on which genre maps to which night.

    Live music nightly that gets really crowded at the beginning, but decompresses after the first hour or so.

    The barista never heard of foursquare and talked to the owner who never heard of foursquare so the Mayor definitely doesn't get anything in return for allegiance folks!
