You'll Always Have Paris -- If You Buy a Piece of the Iconic Coffeehouse Tomorrow

The sad news traveled fast: Paris on the Platte would pour its last cup of coffee on January 17. Former and current regulars hurried over to say goodbye to Faye Maguire, who'd opened the coffeehouse 28 years ago, when that stretch of Platte Street was almost a no man's land (although there did happen to be a newspaper office -- ours -- on the corner). And the memories started pouring out, including a lovely piece from Bree Davies, who went to Paris as a teenager to smoke cigarettes and dream big dreams.

But if you want to remember Paris on the Platte with more than memories, head to its former home tomorrow.
