Brass Tacks

No matter the hour, the cafe/bar Brass Tacks in East Downtown is packed with laptop after laptop, after yet another laptop. Seemingly designed for students and remote employees working from morning to night, you can go from a coffee and a pastry in the morning, to a midday taco break, and then finish with a gin cocktail without ever leaving. There’s something to be said about late-stage capitalism burnout, but who cares. You have work to do, there are plenty of outlets and coffee, and the wifi stays connected. It can get loud with baristas barking out orders, so bring your noise-canceling headphones.
