How ’bout these apples, Barnes & Noble coffee shop/cafe?

A Wisconsin bookstore marries books and beer. You’d think there would be one of these somewhere in New York City, right? Well, as a friend of mine used to say, “Somewhere in Manhattan there’s probably a 24-hour cheese shop, but I’ll be damned if I can find a tampon in my neighborhood after 10 p.m.” (Link via The Elegant Variation.)

Seriously, if there is such a bookstore, let me know.
