Variant Edition is trying some new things with their new space and it sounds like they may have hit on something. Speaking from past experience, I’d love a quiet chance to get out and be around people (but not be around people…).
Here’s the write-up from their site:
Grab a book and come to Variant Edition, where chairs and peace and quiet await. Occurring during the closing hours of our work day, Introverts Reading Night is a time where you can hang out with other like minded readers, have some tea, and listen to some beautiful, low-key music without the pressure of having to mingle. (Although you can if you’d like! Just… quietly.) Meet new folks in a calm environment with books.
