Foam is part bar, part coffeehouse, and it's this combination that draws such a hip crowd. It doesn't open until 4 p.m. — just in time to catch a late-day espresso before heading into after-dark affairs — at which point Foam switches to booze. Right when a buzz kicks in from those craft drinks, an awesome local or touring act will often grace the stage. Those who don't care about performance art can read or write in this coffee house Hemingway-style (from coffee to alcohol) while pounding away on portable typewriters.
