August 29, 2008 was opening day, so to celebrate our first birthday, we are offering some extra goodies this weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday)
Birthday Cakes! Well, actually cupcakes from our friends at Buzz. We are getting both Vanilla/Vanilla and Red Velvet cupcakes.
Espresso Floats! Inspired by our good friends at Woodberry Kitchen in Baltimore, we will be offering a yummy scoop of Trickling Springs Creamery Vanilla Ice Cream in a sea of Espresso Aficionado.
Dog Biscuits! We have a limited supply of free dog biscuits from Buzz for our birthday-celebrating canines.
Thanks, DC, for being so great to us. It’s been an honor to serve you and we look forward to years and years together.
Yesterday, we received a small order of travel mugs with the Peregrine logo on them. (Unfortunately, these will be very limited edition as the company is discontinuing this mug design. We’ll be getting more mugs later in the year, though.)
They are $15 and look like this:
First off, to celebrate our one-year anniversary, we will have some fine Buzz cupcakes this coming weekend as well as Espresso Floats with Trickling Springs Creamery ice cream. These will be available Friday-Sunday. More details to come.
Regarding our coffee menu, it is both an exciting and sad time of the year as new crops come in and old crops depart. At some point in the next week, we will be saying goodbye to Ethiopia Misty Valley, Rwanda Rusenyi and Papua New Guinea Kuta. We are still trying to determine exactly what will be taking their places but we know there are plenty of exciting coffee offerings to come in September. Also, new crop Thunguri from Kenya will be replacing the Ndaroini in the next couple of days.
We were on the news last night!
NewsChannel 8 was doing a story on wifi in cafes and we ended up getting featured during the piece. That nice macchiato at the beginning was ours as well as the interview with Scott Phelps and, of course, the two lines that Ryan said. Check it out here. BTW, we have no immediate plans to change our wireless accessibility, though the time will come when the weekend market hours will require some sort of action.
August Specials are now being served–come get Dessert (Espresso and Pistachio Air paired with Mascarpone and Cranberry) or Vacation (Espresso shaken over ice with Almond-Anise Syrup accompanied with a Calimyrna Fig and Candied Almonds). These will be available through the rest of the month.
