Popular Deep Ellum coffee house It's A Grind will close this evening at 6 o'clock. I was tipped off to the closure by Murray Street Coffee Shop's Facebook page. They posted the following on their wall today.
We understand today is the last day for It's A Grind. A good cause underlying a good competitor. We've always felt a rising tide raises all boats, and we are sorry to see them go.
In the Summer of 2009 the Observer printed an article featuring the shop and its business model dedicated to reinventing the American workplace for its employees.

SHOW ME HOW
I called the shop several times today to talk to manager Carlos Guerrero. When he finally talked to me he refused to talk on the record saying an official communication about the closure would be released in about two weeks. He did confirm the shop will not be open tomorrow. We'll update you if we receive any more official communication.
