This past Saturday (4/2) was one of the longest, most frustrating, and enjoyable days of my life. I’m going to cheat a little bit by including the First Friday event in the longest day equation because to me it was all one in the same. This will have been our 6th First Friday event and we have come a long way since the first event. All in all it was uneventful and not as busy for us as past First Friday’s, but fun just the same.
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.
Well we survived yet another First Friday. It was an amazing night serving coffee, meeting old and new friends, and just watching the spectacle of the crowd. Not only did we get some amazing free cupcakes from Mimi, but we also broke in the new trailer and she worked just fine. As a result, we went through about 7 gallons of water, almost 6 pounds of coffee, 5 gallons of milk, and 1 can of whip cream serving approximately 95 drinks in a four hour span.
Tonight starts the era of mobility for Grouchy John and his fight against the evil coffee empire. Tonight I will debuting, in it’s infancy, the Grouchy John Mobile Command Unit!
Come join the Grouchy Nation this week at First Friday (2/4) to continue fighting against the evils of bad coffee. Grouchy John will be there in his new Mobile Command Unit serving out hot caffeinated fun to the masses. By…
