One Other Thing: The Reincarnation of Cafe Momus

Akron's Cafe Momus, in addition to being a University institution was something of an unofficial Akron home for NEO bloggers. We held Meet the Bloggers interviews there, our one Akron meetup was there and it was the site of Hackett's Last Stand. Sadly, it closed when the owner's wife and business partner fell ill and eventually passed away.

Happily it is coming back as a Hattie's Cafe, a project of Hattie Larlham, a local charity that works with mentally handicapped adults. The cafe will provide good eats and coffee and train Larlham clients for careers in food service.

No word on whether they will maintain free Wi-Fi, but it is a near-campus coffee shop. I think there's a rule or something.
