Courtyard Coffee House, Perhaps?

The water volcano at my Library remains extinct (or, perhaps, just inactive??), but there have been new additions to the MPL Courtyard.  Looks like an open-air coffee house in the making, don't you think?

Completed Units Have Stone Benches

Looks a Little Like Stonehenge

". . . An ancient librarian civilization constructed these monoliths for who knows what purposes . . ."  Could be a great documentary for the Discovery Channel.

"Have a Seat, and Your Waiter Will Be Along Presently"
(No, Really . . .  Do You Have a Seat?)

"Waitress, We Need a Table Top Here"
(Plus Seats, If You Please)

We French are mad for open-air coffee houses, restaurants, or pretty much anything outdoorsy.  This will give my Library a Parisian atmosphere, which is high-class to the hilt and bound to attract some top-notch, A-List celebrities and patrons, such as moi.  Obviously, the project is presently incomplete, as some of the tabletops and benches have not yet been installed.  When finished, you can bet your bottom dollar (or top dollar, I'm not particular) that this will make the MPL Courtyard yet another central attraction for library frequenters and aficionados.

So how would I use this new space?  Glad you asked.

Outdoor Sushi Bar

That's MY Kind of Snack!

Whaddya think, Boss Lady?  Très chic, to be sure.  Let me know when it's open for business.  I get an employee discount, of course.

Hoping for Service With a Smile,

P.S.  Hallelujah (2008), written by Leonard Cohen and covered by Jeff Buckley (1966-1997), is a popular coffee house song.

P.P.S.  Jeff's father, Tim Buckley (1947-1975), was an accomplished folk singer (among other styles) in the mid-1960s.  Micky Dolenz arranged to have Tim perform "Song to the Siren" (1967) on the final episode of The Monkees television show in 1968.


  1. Even better than sushi: sashimi! Who needs rice?

    P.S. Stonehenge was the first thing I thought of too when I saw the new additions.

  2. Like your human friend's monolith constructions! Hallelujah song by Jeff Buckley is the most moving song :)

  3. Haven't heard Tim singing as much as Jeff. What an amazing voice he has. Sad how both father and son left this earth too early.
