Wailing Complaining as I have for the past couple-few months about the street work in front of Ali's coffee shop, it's only fair that I shout out...
The sidewalks are a bit wider, the pedestrian crosswalk areas are roomy & visible, there's parallel parking on Ali's side of the street and angle parking on the other... it's really, really nice. There's a bit of a spatial shift that makes me feel like I'm driving down the middle of the street, but I'm sure I'll get over it.
Since some of this was finished when temps were at freezing or below (10 degrees or so below), I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the contractor(s) know what they're doing and it doesn't all fall apart next summer. Is that cement actually set or just frozen in place??
A group of kids at a nearby charter school recently decorated a bunch of coffee sleeves "with all the happy things"! On the other side of this one is THE SUN!! I love the little smiley face on the C"O"FFEE! My cup is full of the new Gingersnap Latte, using house-made syrup (and with my special request for "not too sweet"), and it was perfect! Kristin said that it's been a hit and she already had to make another batch of syrup.
