I tend to get a lot of my commissioned writing finished in coffee shops. I like the atmosphere, the people, the smell, the noises, the bad local student paintings… I soak them in. It’s a culture like no other I’ve known. But there’s one thing I expect when I’m at a coffee shop: Free Wi-Fi. I don’t get that at Starbucks (though I do pay for the silly service there). I don’t get that at half the places I frequent. But many do.
Then I came to find out there are a lot of places that offer free Wi-Fi outside of coffee shop. I can’t seem to figure out why anyone would go to somewhere else than a coffee shop, but I compiled a list for you, in case the mood strikes. See the list after the jump.
