A little something for the kitchen.

I can already tell that my future kitchen will be decorated in art from various coffeehouses I've visited across the country. This piece from Metropolis Coffee in Chicago will certainly make the list, if I can get in there before they all sell out.

Update. I've been to Metropolis several times now, and I've got to say it's one of my favorite coffeeshops in town. They serve great mochas, which are dark and smooth and fantastic, and the baristas do this terrific thing with the froth that turns each cup into art. I did pick up a copy of that print, but the only trouble with it is the paper it's printed on is sort of green. This is kind of a shame, because it's a neat piece of art.

In any case, the place offers great ambience, plenty of seating, a veritable plethora of power outlets (!), free Wi-Fi and even the occasional movie night. This place is my new favorite hangout. Check it out – and if you see me in there, be sure to say hello!
