Your intrepid reporter is camped out at the Cafe Brazil at North Central and Fondren. Besides being crowded with SMU students clad in sweatpants and bedhead, this place is full of Parkies looking for some hot coffee, good food, free Internet, and a spare table to set their Louis Vuitton purse.
I just spoke to a couple from Lakewood who said that this was their third try for a place to charge their phones and check e-mail. Coffee shops and restaurants with power outlets and free Internet are all packed. Another nearby gal asked if we knew how many people were without power, or when it would be restored.
Know of a good spot to wait out the power outage? Share in the comments.
