Duck into Bean. to escape the busy city streets

A sea of blue-checkered shirt-wearers swarm like a pack in all directions, while the sound of heels clacking on the uneven pavement fills the streets. Every now and then someone will break from the flock, ducking down a shadowy alleyway, unbeknownst to the others. They're not being mysterious though; they're just in tune with the latest underground coffee haunt at which to escape the bustle of the city streets above. more
