I think it was you who gave me the idea for the joint. Quite a while back on one of these threads we were dissenting over the growth and power of the state and you signed off with "see you at the Chestnut Tree Cafe" referring to what happens to dissidents in Orwell's 1984. If it wasn't you sorry for the confusion and sorry to the guy who's now forgotten who inspired my dream. A Free State should have something to remind them of Big Brother so they'll never lose their vigilance. I was thinking of setting it up in a college town. The Chestnut Tree will be profitable while serving the public interest.

I don't recall the exchange, but I'm familiar with the reference; there was a coffeehouse of that name that was a popular hangout in my college days, and I was aware of the source of the name even if most of the college kids weren't.

It is indeed a great name for an evening watering spot, about third on the list I'd have if I were so inclined, but going nicely with a joint with at least some eatery possibilities, I hope. And I hope there'll be a bulletin board somewhere around the place for public notices and wanted flyers for previous elected officials and political miscreants.

You ever seen the video for Toby Keith's *I love this bar*? And do let me know if you'd care to have a guitar-picker and/or banjo plunker or two around some Winter's evening.
