Best Place for Eavesdropping

Cherry Street Coffee

In journalism class the term is "listening post," a classy disguise for what most people would describe as being nosy. In the belly of Cherry Street Coffee's mothership, you can get a feel for the neighborhood's economic climate (always an interview or two going on), an everyman's take on the day's news (all income brackets are represented here), and possibly an exclusive audience with one of the region's voices in D.C. (Rep. Jay Inslee is surely not the only elected official to post up on occasion). One word of warning: If you're not picking up any good material, chances are you're the one providing it. CHRIS KORNELIS 103 Cherry St., 621-9372 and other locations.
