a final note: apparently the location of the café musain is a popular topic among hugo aficionados. (i know there have been several threads on the subject in the abaissé forums.) in the name of scholarly rigor and general nerdery, then, i put together my reasons for choosing this location, as opposed to other buildings in the vicinity. click the cut for exhaustive details:
