This week has been pretty crazy, and unless you've been living under a rock, you know why. Luckily, last night's protests in Ferguson were peaceful, but this thing isn't over. There are many journalists, concerned citizens and out-of-town media covering Ferguson, and that means makeshift offices and workspaces. If you need somewhere to go, try Rise Coffee House (4180 Manchester Avenue) in the Grove.
