I went up to Coffee Bean last night to ask about having the SoS gatherings there. They are totally cool with it and very welcoming.
They were rather busy last night (a Thursday), so I asked if Tuesdays were slower. The barista said that Tuesdays were slower nights than Thursdays. I take that to imply that it will be less crowded on Tuesdays, so I'm going to go up on Tuesday with my sign and my "cards" and see what happens.
I'm also going to announce my gathering on ravelry.com and maybe create a yahoo group (if I can figure that thing out).
Yahoo Group created!
