When I first moved to Evanston from New York City what made me fall in love with the Unicorn was the sense of community and belonging I felt there while sipping my cup of coffee. It was such juxtaposition from the cold fast pace I had left in New York and it was very cathartic. As our society relies more and more heavily on social networking and “virtual” contact I find this daily interaction with others even more meaningful. Last week on my bike ride to work I realized I had a smile on my face and it was because I was thinking of all the people I was going to get to interact with during the day. Believe it or not, us baristas notice you, hear you and like you (even you difficult ones). When I am on vacation I often wonder what Joe is up to, or how Gary is doing quitting smoking or if Mocha Bill likes his new job. I believe it is important for people to feel a sense of community and I am very grateful to the patrons of the Unicorn for providing that.
