In the Company of Thieves is a cafe on East Johnson Street in Madison; it happens to be a block away from my church, making it a convenient place to spent some time before choir rehearsal. And I can prove it, because that's what I'm doing right now. It's a nice little place: a friendly barista, comfy chairs and couches, books and magazines to thumb through, works by local artists on the walls, free wifi and plenty of electrical outlets, and one of those old-fashioned tin ceilings. I'd take a picture but I left my phone at work. And boy, if that's not a uniquely 21st-century sentence I've never typed one.

Another good reason for me to come here was that there was a Groupon deal for this place a few days ago: five bucks for ten dollars worth of food and drink. So I had a hot turkey club and a pot of organic white peach tea. Tasty!
