Closed for Thanksgiving holiday and film shoot

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and give thanks for ones good fortune We at linuxcaffe are especially thankful for the many wonderful visitors and regulars, you know who you are.

Thanksgiving is also a time to celebrate close friends and family, enjoying the harvests bounty, feasting and drinking, coming back for seconds and overindulging, lolling about afterwards, belching and sitting leaned way back with one hand jammed under your belt, and a coffee or aperitif in the other, and that's what we will be doing on Monday, October 11th.

On Tuesday we'll be closed, too, for a feature film shoot in the caffe. The place will be surrounded with grips and electrics, big lights and mysterious hardware.

but Wednesday, we will be open again, rested, thankful, well fed and a little bit more famous. Don't worry, it won't go to our heads.

thanks for taking the time to visit the website, and the caffe.
we adore you and can't wait to see you on Wednesday.

Happy Thanksgiving,
the Mgmt

Cooking for Geeks author Jeff Potter visits linuxcaffe

Cooking for Geeks

We geeks are fascinated by how things work, and most of us eat, too. If you’re the innovative type who asks why just as often as what , my book, “Cooking for Geeks: Real Science, Great Hacks, and Good Food” will show you a new way to approach the kitchen.
Cooking for Geeks is more of a book about cooking than it is a cookbook. The book contains explanations of the science behind cooking, interviews with researchers and chefs, experiments for the reader to try, and recipes to tie it all together.
