Coffee Bar, San Francisco

Coffee Bar is a solid cafe. I can hang out here and write all day long. Friendly, no-nonsense, and attractive baristas run a tight ship in this modern space with great light and air, roomy tables, good-quality yet unobtrusive dishware, and comfortable and varied seating, including a roomy front porch with potted plants and tables.

Sexy Verbs: The Fuzzy Verb

Sexy Verbs: The Fuzzy Verb
This is the final episode in the four-part series, Sexy Verbs. At the end of this post, you’ll have a chance to flaunt your sexy verb expertise, so be sure to review the previous posts on passive voice, -ly adverbs, and wuzzy verbs. What is a fuzzy verb? A fuzzy verb has been watered down by another, more boring and not useful verb. For example: Catharine began writhing in ecstasy. Fuzzy verbs shroud the verb just as passive verbs shroud the subject. They water down the action. Why do we nee......
