Take a study break , enjoy a drink By MARY MULVIHILL Staff Writer Carolina Coffee Shop 138 E. Franklin St. Dark wooden booths and tables, long red drapery and elaborate hanging lamps highlight the Coffee Shop's striking medie val decor. In the midst of such surroundings you expect the Knights of the Round Table to appear at any moment and join you for a few drinks. Although Robin Hood and his friends never arrive, you are guaranteed a stimulating conversation with the interesting group of professionals and one of the few places where you can get an alcoholic drink as early as 9 in the morning. Couples can retire to a cozy booth and enjoy a late-night drink with one of the Coffee Shop's fabulous desserts. Ordering a drink becomes a chore at the Carolina Coffee Shop as you must choose from a long, impressive list of wines, liquers and mixed and hot drinks. Colonel Chutney's 300 W. Rosemary St. Happy Hour: 4:30-6 p.m. every day Colonel Chutney's has to be one of the top late-night spots in Chapel Hill, and it just may be the most well-rounded. Plants and latticework surround all the booths and help create a cheerful atmosphere that is hard to beat. Chutney's late-night menu offers finger foods, sandwiches, salads, soups, chili, gourmet burgers and the renowned prime rib sandwich that keeps people coming back all the time. The bar specializes in mixed drinks and offers 23 differ ent brands of beer.
