WHAT’S YOUR 3RD PLACE?
Originally published on FreePressHouston.com.
Everyone has two important places – home and work, but we all need our own “3rd place,” apart from home & work. It is our personal hangout, any type of special place in one’s different stages of life. Obvious examples are neighborhood diners and bars, where you can always find a “buddy,” a group of friends, or it could be a favorite bench in a public park. Most 3rd places occur in urban areas, yet in the suburban areas, the likely candidate area is the country club or a YMCA.
