Best bookstore to make noise at New York 2004 - HOUSING WORKS USED BOOK CAFÉ
Seems like you can't walk into a bookstore without knocking into a cup of coffee these days. At HOUSING WORKS USED BOOK CAFE, music writer and editor Alan Light has come up with (pun alert) a very "novel" idea by curating "Live From Home"a monthly musical series benefiting various AIDS charities, and featuring folks like Lyle Lovett, Ryan Adams, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Rosanne Cash. So go, and dare someone to tell you to be quiet while you're pumpin' to the Cowboy Junkies. And yep, you can get a cuppa joe too.
