Noch ist Siesta, doch bald öffnet hier die mikro.bar mit ihren vulkanischen Anregungsmitteln ihre Rolläden. In der Mittagspause, nach der Arbeit oder auch sonst lädt sie zu einem kleinen Schwätzchen. Hier wird der neuste Klatsch aus der Nachbarschaft ausgetauscht. Kaffeehausliteraten halten Hof. Man kann ungestört am Tresen sitzen und dem Geplapper der Stadt lauschen. 

Demnächst wirst Du hier zwei Mailinglisten abonnieren können:

  • mikro.fon (announcements aus mikro.space)
  • mikro.bar (discussions über Themen aus dem mikro.space)
