Her name is Lola
Shawn and I planned to meet weeks ago, after he came back from Africa, but I had to cancel. He wanted to meet at a place named Dream Cafe in an artsy up-and-coming part of Atlanta not far from Ashview Heights. I’m trying to reschedule with him but first I rode my bike by the Dream Cafe this week just to see where it is. I met Lola, who owns it with her son, three-time All American and former NFL-player Stevie Baggs. We had a warm embrace, for reasons I’m not ready to share. She told me something important.
