I think it's gone. The last time I was at a tradeshow there, I couldn't wait to escape the booth, grab a coffee and watch the cars go by on the highway only to be crushed by the empty space where it used to be.

I'm not sure how that design was chosen, unless it hides stains the best. Although knowing how things work when the state is involved it was probably just the cheapest.

Really? It was a Seattle's best coffee the last time I was there (All but a few months back)

What trade show did you have a booth at?

That must be what they replaced it with (which I think is Starbucks owned?). CT Groundskeepers Assoc. was the last one over the winter.

Yep, they bought them out a few years ago. (Which I find ironic considering that Starbucks cafes are found in Barnes and Nobles and Seattle's Best Coffee cafes are found in Boarders Books and Music)

All other coffee in CT < Dunkin Donuts. I remember being up in Hartford this spring (NCAA tournament) and using GPS to find nearby restaurants....3 DD's within 0.1 mile radius! FWIW The convention center is kinda nice but the rest of Hartford is just dreadful. I occasionally have to go into the office to work but I try to stay out of there whenever possible.

Sorry CT natives!

Pretty much. The first time I walked into the convention center I said to myself "What is there doing here?"

I would probably be considered a Hartford native for all intensive purposes. I mean that Dunkin Donuts is the BEST!! I can never get enough of it, and I'll admit a major reason that I moved to my current apartment is because there is a Dunkin Donuts about 2 blocks away and a Wawa across the street ...My diet isn't that bad I swear....

Hartford is just awful. I spent 20 years of my life about 5 min from it and still won't go into the city unless I absolutely have to. I'd rather drive down to New Haven. Case in point - I remember seeing an episode of "Gangland" where they profiled a Hartford gang. In the background of a number of the shots was the building where I work when I go into the office . Yeahhhhh...I'll stick to telework thank you.
