I’ve always likes the sign at Third Space that says, “Up here it’s okay to talk to strangers,” but I didn’t know exactly why they’d posted it.
The place was packed when Jonathan, Amanda (another Fulbright), and I ordered breakfast, and Amanda located seats at a large table up top.
It appears that they want to encourage customers to share tables on this raised level. They have two very long, family style tables.
The crowd soon thinned out and we had plenty of space to ourselves.
Thankfully we had Jonathan with us, so we met the criteria for sitting up there! (We had someone stranger to talk to!!!!)
I explained the philosophy of “third space” in an earlier blog and other adventures I’ve had at Third Space in Smithfield (Dublin 7) as well.
