wi-fi policy changes

As I wrote in my previous post from December 11th, the coffeehouse will have a new wi-fi policy in place January 15th.  Thanks to those who commented and offered suggestions as to how best balance the needs of all our patrons.  Also, please remember that we are not targeting individuals - we appreciate those of you who "pay rent" throughout the day, who share their tables, who use only the chairs they need, but we can't expect everyone to be as courteous as you or as aware of the needs of a small business and of the Modern Times/Politics and Prose community.
We're working with our "IT Department" to configure the router.  Unfortunately, we can't block bit torrent sites with the router we have.  We can, however configure it to not broadcast a signal during certain times.  The router will automatically shut off between the hours of 11a - 3p during the weekdays.  During the weekends it will remain off until 5p. You will still need to obtain a receipt with purchase to get a passkey to sign into the network.
Thank you again for helping us create a warm, welcoming environment. 

Eyeball Kicks - Jan. 14-Feb. 27

MTC is proud to present Eyeball Kicks by Norm Mensh

Even if you weren't able to make it to the opening reception, there's plenty of time to meet with the artist and enjoy his work!

Norm will be in the coffeehouse from 1-5pm to meet with patrons, sell his work, and talk about his inspiration on the following dates:
February 2, 9, 16, and 23.

As always, the art is for sale! For purchasing information, please come find Norm during one of his in-house times, or contact him directly at eyeballkicksphotographics@gmail.com

New Keepcup® travel mugs now available!

We love the new Keepcup® travel mugs.  They fit under the group heads of our espresso machine - that means less fussing with your shots, preserving the integrity of the crema.  They're 12 ounces, lightweight and unbreakable.  BPA Free and Non-toxic.  Dishwasher and microwave safe.  Designed and manufactured in Australia - you know those guys take their coffee seriously!  Plus they look great with the Modern Times Coffeehouse logo printed on its band and you receive a fifty cent discount every time you use it at the shop.  We still have our handsome ceramic mugs available - now at a discounted price!


Changes in Coffehouse Hours: Mondays 8a - 7p

I know this comes as such a late notice, but we will be closing early, at 7p, starting this coming Monday, January 14th.  This will be a permanent change to Modern Times Coffeehouse's Monday hours in order to accommodate for Private Classes hosted by Politics and Prose Bookstore.  We have tried keeping the coffeehouse open while the classes take place, but, unfortunately, that environment has proved not conducive for quiet, distraction-free discussion.
I appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience to our loyal coffeehouse patrons.  We still love you and appreciate your support!

Curvature: Meet the Artist
