Drinking coffee in front of Hot Corner Coffee evokes memories of days gone by when you could drink coffee in front of Jittery Joe's nearby on Washington Street. The scenery is shifted a couple hundred feet or so -- that's the only difference. Back then would you have guessed that one day you might be drinking coffee in front of Adcock Furniture?
A guy wearing an open shirt and carrying a duffel bag and a long stick stops in front of the coffee shop and bums a cigarette from some folks. He walks across Hull Street and pauses in front of the Morton Theater to puff away while looking in the window. He drops his stick, bends to replace it in his duffel bag, and slowly continues uphill.
