Pullman Square, of course. 

Posted: October 14, 2015 in Uncategorized

It’s a Tuesday evening, and Pullman Square is packed. Live music under the grandstand.  Why can’t someone do this in your hometown?

The secret is in a question.

I walked in the Jos. A. Banks store at Pullman Square.  The clerk says, “What brings you here?”

“Coffee,” I said.

It’s not what she meant, but it was true.  We had stopped in for a cup of coffee.  Then we discovered the music.  Then I shopped.  My wife shopped.  Then we listened to music again.

That is the secret.  Multiple reasons for people all day and all night to come by.  It works.
