Reading at Stacy's

Stacy's Coffee Parlor is an oasis of good cheer, comfortable sofas, passion, art, reality (as opposed to chain-coffee-shop alienation), sassy wait staff, toys, magnet poetry, really good cupcakes, conversation and camaraderie amid the enroaching strip-mall sprawl of the beleaguered city of Falls Church. I was a regular there, when we were stateside. After six months of fancy European cooking, I recently asked my kids what their favorite restaurant in the world was. Hands down: Stacy's.

So what better place to read some fiction to a caffeinated evening audience, when we're in Virginia for the kids' spring break?

I'll try to make it.

Based on your write-up of Stacy's, it sounds as if it's a place I should try for dinner either before or after!

It's a great place, though you're not going to have a great variety of dinner options... it's more of a hang-out cafe than a restaurant in the narrow sense. If you're fine with wraps, soup, pasta salad, bagels, baked goods, ice cream, etc., though, it's a lovely place to eat.

I am partial to the tuna-fish, salsa and cheese wrap myself. :-)

I saw that you have a couple of stories ("Molly and the Red Hat" and "Stray" with David Ackert) selected as Locus Magazine's Recommended Reading. Congrats!
