Best Political Coffeehouse - 2005
VOX POP - CLOSED
Java joints often brew an activist vibe. But Ditmas Park's VOX POP trumps the caffeinated competition with its slogan "Books, Coffee, Democracy," its progressive readings and performances, its press (with titles like American Assassination: The Strange Death of Senator Paul Wellstone), its self-publish Instabook machine and, best of all, its proud Wobbly staff, members of IWW 660. Good luck getting those anarchists to make you a cup of joe.
