We think the name of Coffeehouse Five, the new coffeehouse in the Old Town district of Greenwood (323 Market Plaza, to be exact), is fairly appropriate. This is, of course, assuming that the management named their business after the Kurt Vonnegut novel Slaughterhouse Five and not just because Coffeehouses One through Four didn’t catch on in the community.
On a more serious note, Slaughterhouse Five seems on its surface to just be another strange science fiction novel about a guy named Billy Pilgrim who who experiences World War II and journeys through time. However, there’s much more to this novel than meets the eye. It’s a satirical novel that proved to be influential and of carry a great deal of literary significance.
So, what does this have to do with Coffeehouse Five? On the surface, this just looks like another place to drop in and enjoy a cup of joe. What makes this place extra interesting, however, is that it is a “for-benefit” coffeehouse. All proceeds from the Coffeehouse Five operations support the community through Five Initiatives for Building Stronger Marriages and Families.

If you’re looking for a deal to go with this great cause, keep in mind that you can enjoy a bottomless cup of coffee any time for just $2.09. At that price, it’s a great deal to hang out for awhile with your friends. We hope to see you there soon.
