The folks here in the lab aka ibiblio.org socked it to me for Christmas. Kristina delivered the goods and took this picture.
Mourning the closing of the Daily GrindPaul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, General, Information Commons
Our favorite social space and coffee provider is being boarded up and moved out of their/its building for renovations. The Daily Grind was moving into a trailer yesterday. Not even an Airstream (to Don’s disappointment), but a rectangular FEMA trailer or one like you might see at the State Fair or at a, say, steeple chase event (to cover a couple of ends of the social spectrum).
Don and I are now in Carrboro working outdoors at the Weave.
Interestingly enough, we are running into many of the people here that we often see at the Grind — or make that saw at the Grind.
The Grind will reopen in the trailer then in the renovated space. But in the meantime, we’re in mourning.
