From the January 2019 magazine.

No coffee just love

Ever since I’ve been attending AA meetings, I’ve been taking two or three Grapevine magazines a week from the share-and-return baskets of two of the meetings I attend. In one of those issues, I read an article about how a member had held a meeting in a parking lot when the meeting leader had not arrived but another desperate alcoholic had.

One night in March, I pulled into the parking lot of a location in Burlingame, California for a 7:30 p.m. AA meeting. I arrived half an hour early so I sat in my car just passing the time by reading one of my Grapevines.
