Josh just posted a list of free wireless spots in town on imaybecheap. The list adds more locations to the locations mentioned on Harrisonburg Homes’ list. What are your favorite wireless spots?

  1. Personally, I like the Artful Dodger. Perfect for the upcoming spring weather. Log on outside.

  2. McAllister’s is my favourite for connectivity. I need a stable connection for my work, so that’s a pretty big selling point for me.

    For overall atmosphere, Cinnamon Bear is my preferred location. The workers are friendly, it’s usually quiet, and the food rocks.

    I like Greenberry’s. It’s cozy, there is great coffee to consume, and I can take a break to people watch. Plus, I just love the sounds and smells in a coffee shop.

  4. Laura says:

    Not all of the servers even know it, but Cally’s has wireless. Nothing like a Smokin’ Scottish AND wireless. It’s the new spot for my late-afternoon meetings!

  5. Dave Briggman says:

    Arbys has free wireless, as does Staples…but staples is only 128K down…36k up.

  6. Emmy says:

    My laptop battery is terrible, any of these places have electricity I can mooch too? ;)

    Most of the downtown restaurants have jumped on the free wireless bandwagon. Earth and Tea, Dave’s, Clementine’s, Cally’s, Old Dominion, Artful Dodger, Blue Nile. I wouldn’t hold my breath on Indian American or Jess’s, but still a pretty good list.

    Even Fine Furniture has agreed to providing a network to the public. Who would have ever thought we would have free wireless in downtown?

  8. David Miller says:

    Don’t forget You Made It, Finnigan’s, Franklin’s, Mrs. Hardesty’s Tea Room, (I think) and anyone else we can peer pressure into adding it:)

  9. Tina says:

    I’ve been at Indian-American and could pick up the wireless from next door. (I know… not nice, but it wasn’t password-protected so I couldn’t help myself!)

  10. David Miller says:

    Tina, my theory is that if someone doesn’t protect their wireless then they are being generous and sharing. Intentional or not it’s good karma!
