The Guadalupe Quack's may be dead, but the Hyde Park location is thriving - mostly off of caffeine-addled musicians, it seems. With Sixteen Deluxe's Carrie Clark behind the counter and a Who's Who of Free-for-All illuminati inside, outside, and on the tree-covered park bench, Quack's has become the Hyde Park equivalent to Flipnotics - a place for musicians to meet sans instruments in the morning (that's 11am-1pm, Musician Standard Time). With all the gossip flying, for just the price of a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll, you too can know what's in next week's "Dancing About Architecture" before even Ken Lieck does.
