Finding remote work places

When you are on the road, we all have to find the right place to light and work at times. Do you all have favorites?

Starbucks is a natural. So is Kinko's (or is it FedEx Kinko's or FedEx Office?). Here is a list of my favorite places to stop between tasks at a show and work on my laptop or return calls:

  • Starbucks, across from Mosconi Center in San Francisco.
  • Kinko's on Paradise Road, Las Vegas (has a Starbucks attached)
  • The sports bar in the Gaylord Opryland.
  • The Kinko's inside the Orange County (Orlando) CC.
  • Cadillac Ranch, West End, Dallas.
  • Coffee Shop/bar in the Chicago Hyatt-McCormick lobby.
  • The food court in the basement of Javits Center, New York City.

There are probably criteria for why you choose these places:
  • Proximity to where you are stationed
  • Wi-Fi service
  • What they serve
  • Quiet or atmosphere
  • Meeting space

While it isn't always fun to be on the road, finding a short-term, workable temp offices is a haven for your time away.
