A clean, well-lighted place

MMOs as third places

From the article:

What is a third place? The first place is your home, where you can relax and be comfortable. The second place is where you usually are when not at home — work; work provides social interaction and sense of community. Howard Schultz, founder of Starbucks introduced third places as somewhere besides home or work where people can socialize and feel comfortable. Think Cheers.

I've always thought that a library cafe, complete with book checkout at the counter, would make a great third place. I'm sure there are probably existing libraries that have them, but our nearest one doesn't.

Do you have a third place? If so, what is it?

This bar http://www.thehighlanderatlanta.com/ used to be my third place before moving to Raleigh. I don't really have one up here, and I sure do miss that.
