Mug & Mouse

Mug & Mouse, an independently-run coffee house, opened in aug in frisco, where it serves Lavazza coffee along w/ sandwiches, smoothies, shakes, slushies (made w/ fruit juice), and bubble tea (tho they’ll add the tapioca pearls to any cold drink). What distinguishes M&M from the usual independently-run coffee place is that it started out as a gaming clan of sorts, then evolved into an independenty-run coffee place. thus prevails a gaming vibe; for ex, it’s a LAN ctr so you can go and play vidgames w/ other customers. assuming you are 15 and semi-geeky-techy. being somewhat of a suburban kid thing, it keeps wild hours, from 5 a.m. to midnight on wkends. it's down a side street behind Ikea but a city rec ctr's going in across the street so maybe it'll do better than some of the other independently-run coffee places that seem to close almost as quickly as they open*

5995 Preston Rd. #105, Frisco. 1-469-362-8590

*which is why i'm sorry writing about a certain coffee chain is more gratifying than the little guys

I have no time for games.

I'm going to watch CNN tonight -- they are showing that classic French farce La Cage aux Foley.

If you get tired of that, BK, you can always switch over to C-SPAN and watch "Foley a Deux." It's a gripping story ... a real Page turner

Let's see ... 15-year-olds playing video games, amped up on double espressos, AND you can wander over to Ikea if you get bored. I am SO THERE!

Does anyone else find the name "Mugs & Mouse" to be offputting?

I APPRECIATE ANY ESTABLISHMENT WITH THE SENSE TO SERVE VERMIN. MICE ARE SMALL, QUICK AND DON'T HAVE MUCH MEAT ON THE BONE. I'LL HAPPILY PAY FOR A MOUSE RATHER THAN EXPEND THE EFFORT IT TAKES TO CATCH IT.
