and jungle on up in this funky shack.
Point that lead sled to Bay City – Mashpee and sail on by. You can’t miss it.
Founded in Bay City in April of 2012, The Pen is a gathering place and venue that serves all Second Life® residents. Formed with a Beatnik coffee house look and feel, the place presents spoken word and music events on both a static and erratic schedule.
Feel free to kick up your feet, grab a cuppa, and stay a while, friend. You can even click the books on the coffee table to hear a few quotes from Beat Poets, or let your fingers roam to find other hidden things around the place.
We offer the finest in freshly-ground mesh coffee beans imported from coffee growers in Jeogeöt and Nautilus. Each cup is brewed to perfection.
We have three baked good options available fresh on a daily basis. Flaky croissants, gooey cinnamon buns, and the finest in muffins.
We offer chit chat and conversation any time more than one person is present. This is on the house.
Bleary eyes, insaned mind bemused and mystified by sleep, details that pop out even as you write them you don’t know what they mean, till you wake up, have coffee, look at it, and see the logic of dreams in dream language itself, see?Jack Kerouac

The Pen did not come out of nowhere. It was originally the brainchild of Marianne McCann and Ever Dreamscape, for a combination book and coffee shop with… Read more “A Little Background…”
One thing a coffee house needs is, well, coffee. While we have always offered the finest in mesh beans with the best textures we can provide, we’ve always sought to improve the experience…
I love Espresso Yourself nights at The Pen. Sharing silly or serious thoughts, stories, experiences, books, pictures, poems, haiku, etc… strengthening bonds between friends. Each person supporting the other as we take turns at the mic (which makes it much easier to be up on the podium, exposing yourself, so to speak.)
Some of the best times I have had at the Pen were impromptu gatherings, with Mari as DJ, sharing her amazing collection of eclectic music.
The Pen is one of the best coffee houses I have seen. Aside from having the best cinnamon buns in Bay City, they have great coffee and great conversation. Every month they have Espresso Yourself Night which is a great time to stop in, meet some new people and enjoy some great conversation. You might even meet some new friends.
The Pen proudly presents Espresso Yourself night, held on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. SLT.
What is “Espresso Yourself?” It’s a chance to take your spot on the stage and share. Tell a joke, share your poetry, read a chapter from your favorite book, sing a song. Just share! Voice or Text. Talent not required, but passion is mandatory. Also, no mimes.
