I think I've found my next regular hangout (Milkboy Coffee). It's about a 10 minute walk from my new apartment, and feels like Victoria's Midnight Cafe (a place I liked in Columbus) bred with a Crazy Mocha. The food is decent, they have a reasonably broad menu, the decor is offbeat, and there are plenty of seating arrangements. They regularly hold shows here, which could be good or bad.
Although my renting a car is a rarity, I think it might be nice to have an Android specific app to mind all aspects of parking and keeping parking meters fed. This entails:
- Letting people note that a place is a reasonable place to park
- If they park there, use position info to memorise their current position, allowing them to enter more info (in case they park in a multi-floor parking garage)
- Letting them enter how much time is left on the meter. Do something reasonable with warning them a few times when the time to pay more or leave draws near.
- Optionally log and summarise one's parking
