I hear that Leon Trotsky used to hang out at the Cafe Central in Vienna.
I will be arriving Wednesday morning in Vienna and departing Friday to participate in a conference on “The Role of Think Tanks in the Political Process of the EU and the US” sponsored by the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation.
I don’t have a firm place or time yet, but I would be happy to join political junkies and blog-types on Wednesday afternoon or sometime Thursday.
One friend has recommended either Cafe Central, Cafe Landtmann, or the American Research Center — which has offered to provide the coffee. If you have recommendations and are in Vienna. Let me know.
I will need to meet somewhere convenient to the Hotel am Stephansplatz.
