monday, i mentioned the laptop sharks that circle brooklyn coffee shops with free wifi (my co-doodler victor lost a leg in the table feeding frenzy). friend and reader dbtron’s commented: “I need to see a drawing of a laptop shark attacking Victor. Like, RIGHT NOW.”
well dbtron, let the bloodletting begin:
i have a love/hate relationship with second stop cafe. the place is a laptop zoo and the music selection often leaves much to be desired (sucks), but the coffee is easy to refill, there are plenty of interesting things to draw, and the muffins are solid. this morning i sat in the back-room where the guy running the kitchen played different music (better) and arrived early enough to get a table prior to arrival of the macbook masses. if you plan on going to second stop i recommend these courses of action, unless you have a laptop.
exit note: upon leaving, it took all of 30 seconds before the empty table had been attacked by two laptops. in the words of drawing companion victor who lost a leg, “it’s shark week at second stop.”
some more coffee shop drawin’.
antlers, a cool old bottle rack and cake. but wait, second stop has fitz’s root beer from st louis! i didn’t ask why, but a nice surprise to see fitz’s.
