I’ve lived in Collingswood for about a year and a half now and I just found out today about the Grooveground Coffee Bar at 647 Haddon Ave. Evidently they have music, film showings, poetry, etc. and seemed like a pretty interesting place when I ran by there today (yes, I ran today for the first time in forever. I’ll probably be hurting all week or at least tomorrow). It doesn’t look like Grooveground has a website, so has anyone been there?

  1. You know, ten years ago when we were in high school and the soundtrack from Singles was the greatest thing ever, if we wanted to know more about something like a coffeeshop we would walk in and ask about it. It’s kind of frightening how we now rely on the web for everything now. I don’t think I even have a copy of the Yellow Pages in my house. “Let your fingers do the walking…” Takes on a different meaning now…

  2. Actually I did go in there, but I was a sweaty mess.

    And thanks for the cringing realization that this fall will be ten years since my freshman year of high school.

    I go there pretty frequently…mostly because I am lazy and it is a block away, but also because of the food (where else can I get hummus on haddon ave?) and inexpensive cds.

  4. Oh they sell those CDs? I don’t know why, but when I briefly stopped there it seemed like the CDs were just for the customers to listen to.

    In restrospect that sounds ridiculous.

  6. Yeah, I read about it in the Collingswood free paper. That’s how I found out about the place.

  7. Well this weekend while watching The Breakfast Club, I realized the movie is coming up on its 20-year anniversary. Now that’s just frightening.

  8. I never saw it until 97 or so.

  10. Glad to hear you’re alive. By how much you were coughing last week I thought you’d be dead by now.

  11. This is why I like you! You’re one of the people that would never say I look like Molly Ringwald!!

  12. I think the first thing I saw Molly Ringwald in was the TV adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Stand”
