Common Grounds

So my sisters, my cousin and I are cruising through town and stumble upon Common Grounds Coffee Shop!

So? Did you just say, "SO?"

Common Grounds is a coffee shop located just off the Texas Prairie University campus, where Claire Danvers (main character in Morganville Vampire series ) attends college. Common Grounds is considered neutral territory for both humans and vampires. (wikipedia)

We had to go check it out.

Elaine and I are sitting by the bar, waiting to get our Common Grounds t-shirts.

It was daytime, so there were only a couple of vamps inside.

Two, to be exact. I've marked them with a red arrow.

The rest of the people are human.

"Oliver" (vampire/owner—far left) and
"Eve" (human/employee—far right)
happened to both be working.

They were very nice. They let us take a photo with them.

Elaine said Oliver drooled on her neck.

I've read that series and love it! I'm so jealous! Next time we're at a writer's conference, I'm going to make sure you point out the vampires in the room for me. :)
