Where are the places in your city that feel the most like home? What bars or coffee shops or vegan joints do you report to on the regular to get your fix, or flirt with a cute barista?

Stuff is just stuff. But sometimes some stuff is more. Let’s chat about it. What special trinkets and items are you holding on to? What do they mean to you?
