It’s been 68 days since my last post.
That’s not to say that I haven’t done anything new since then, far from it.
I’ve met Olympians, held their medals, flown in a very small aircraft, met some folks from Giantbomb.com, become allergic to Aspirin, been promoted to Associate Creative Director, and eaten frogs legs for the first time.
So yeah, I’ve just been busy.
But what better way to get back into the swing of things than to try out a new espresso bar.
The Bandit Coffee Group Inc. is a beautiful little spot just down the street from my place. Why I haven’t been there before is beyond me.
The decor is clean, yet rustic and the afternoon light brings a real natural feel to the place. The long wooden table that takes up the majority of the space is perfectly suited for a nice hour of iPad surfing.
The barista, or possibly the owner, was very friendly and really seemed to know what he was doing. My cappuccino was delicious, smooth and creamy and made me wish I’d tried out a macchiato instead because I bet it would have been even better.
This resurgence of independent coffee shops in this end of town is really heartening. Especially since this particular one is within walking distance.
