Another great First Friday is in the books. This month we introduced the Grouchy John’s Latte. Although there was not much of a demand for it the customers that did order them really seemed to enjoy it. And before you ask it’s a White Chocolate & Amaretto Latte. It is fantastic! Also in honor of St. Patricks Day we have a Shamrock Latte (Mocha & Peppermint Latte) on the menu for the month. We went through 9 gallons of water, a little over 6 pounds of coffee, and 6 gallons of milk serving 85 drinks. Altogether it was a good night.
Best moment of the night – Seeing all my friends come out to support us, especially one of my oldest friends Pam.
A**hole of the night – The guy who tried to squeeze his truck between our condiment table and the artist space in the middle of the street after the event already started. Of course he ended up wedging the table between his truck and the trailer and didn’t want to stop. Once he finally did stop, he wouldn’t listen to us on how to move the truck as we tried to remove the table. All he had to do was ask us to move the table and all of this could have been avoided. As it turned out he tore a hole in our table cloth but scratched the shit out of his truck.
Lesson learned of the night – Something will always go wrong so be prepared. Yeah I know this is almost the same as last months but the water heater was working before I left and decided not to work when we arrived. Luckily we were there early enough that I had time to drive back to the house to pick up a beverage dispenser and fill that with hot water. And for you information I needed this because the Health Department required hot water for the hand washing station and would have shut us down with out that.
Strangest off menu drink ordered – Had a guy order a Dirty Chai Tea Latte. Apparently this is a Chai Tea Latte with a shot of espresso. I haven’t tried it yet but it sounds yummy.
See you all next time.
