Joe Downtown: Does coffee shop manager have magic powers?

With the holidays on the way, the lights are going up. But the Christmas lights hanging in The Beat coffee shop weren’t on this morning.

The boss told the manager to turn them on.

“I can’t; they aren’t working,” she replied. “I’m not magic.”

A woman dousing her coffee with cream and sugar overheard.

“Don’t doubt yourself!” she scolded. “You are magic.”

Then she handed the manager a dollar bill and left.

Joe Schoenmann doesn’t just cover downtown, he lives and works there. Schoenmann is Greenspun Media Group’s embedded downtown journalist, working from an office in the Emergency Arts building.
