Keith Sharon (Project 88) writes:
I lugged my old Smith-Corona to downtown Anaheim to spend the morning typing and soaking in the atmosphere of “Ink & Bean” which calls itself a “coffee saloon and wordshop.”
I’m planted in the middle of the small coffee house, whacking away on my typewriter pretending to be Kerouac or Hemingway. ...
The coffee may be good, but in my mind the stars of the place are the typewriters. There are eight of them – Royals, Underwoods, Smith-Coronas – and the plan is to get more. The plans for the whole place, in fact, are big. Writer’s workshops, author nights, writing contests, book exchanges, inspirational meetings – they all came out of the brain of owner Shaheen Sadeghi, who developed “The Lab Anti-Mall” in Costa Mesa.
