Winnemucca, NV Posted on 05/30/2002.

My dad and I are hauling ass on I-80 from Oakland to Chicago, both to get me to the workshop on time, and in preparation for the real road excursion--Route 66.

Man cannot live on water alone, so we turned off in Winnemucca in search of a caffeinated fix. An industry town (don't ask me what industry--I don't know) with a few casinos, the prospects for a decent brew were growing dim, when we hit upon Global Coffee. Situated in a little corner strip mall, this coffeehouse provided a welcome respite, with comfy couches, music, good cappuccinos, free internet access with any beverage purchase, and our delightful barista Brittany, working the counter for the summer after her first year in college.

Cannot say much else about the town, but I can definitely recommend a stop in Winnemucca for refueling.
