Format: We’re a year round write-in on Saturday mornings, in the traditional NaNo style.  We sit at our laptops mostly typing away.  Internet memes do happen when we get bored or just need a break.
Details/Info: Free wi-fi, good access to power outlets.  Located next to Centinela Pet Store, it’s especially handy for those needing to pick up pet chow before or after burning up the keyboard with those furiously flying fingers.  Parking is free and easy in Coffee Connection’s own lot.  You can usually find us at one of the comfy booths near the stained glass windows inside the cafe with jalapeño cheese bagels and laptops at hand.
