I don’t know what you do when you get together with bookish friends, but when fellow Rioter Jenn and I had a sleepover a couple weeks ago, we found ourselves dreaming up literary coffee drinks. Jenn is the events director at WORD bookstores, and their Jersey City location (set to open in September) is going to have a cafe. Obviously, the cafe must have literary coffee drinks. Here’s our menu, created with the help of our fellow Riot contributors. All hail the hivemind!
