The Bobbsey Twins


Baristas at Bob's on break.
Bob's is my favorite "third place." This is a sociological term. "First place" is home. "Second place" is the traditional workplace. "Third place" is your motorcycle coffee shop, or wherever strangers know your name.

I think you should note that it's not merely "Bob's", it's "Bob's Java Hut". And I have to point out that Bob's is the kind of motorcycle coffee shop where I can park my little yellow scooter outside without getting laughed at.

P.S. Having now watched your youtube link on Bob's, I can personally recommend the tattoo shop upstairs.

The full name rather dates the place, doesn't it--it's from the era when everyone would have gotten the reference to Jabba the Hutt (sp?) from the latest--at that time--Star Wars movie, which is about the time I started coming here--because it was across the street from my regular laundromat!

I need to document your tattoo for Gugeo! Wish I had photographed the whole process of getting it.

You must have aliens on your brain! I never would have associated Java Hut with Jabba the Hutt. Here I was always just thinking the whole tiki bar/hut/java connection.

That too: a good name is multidimensional. Like "Bink"!
