Thoughts, stories, ideas, recipes, cheers, and more... What else did you think you would get for a $1 tip?

For those of you looking for something on the more sophisticated side you have my apologies. This blog unfortunately mirrors the author (yours truly.) Some of the humor is not for everyone but I liked it and it's my blog so there! My patrons sometimes ask me where I come up with some of this stuff. I am glad to tell them my mind is a lot like Canada. It is sometimes a bit cold, there are a few dark corners, some of it down right confusing and even a bit dirty but there is also a lot of neat stuff up there. So I hope you all enjoy this blog! ... Cheers!

Ramblings From an Over Caffinated Bartender &The Caramel Machiato Martini

Warning! I have already had 4 cups of coffee before noon and I am on a roll! The weather around here is just starting to come around. By the way do not forget to set your clocks ahead this weekend. However with spring comes rain, spring showers and more rain. Now just follow me here... All this rain reminds me of Seattle and Seattle reminds me of coffee, over priced coffee but good coffee non-the-less oh and Seattle reminds me of that movie with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks and that little boy and if you didn't cry a little when they finally found love I mean really you are just not human. Oh and the Space Needle how can I forget that! But I digress, Seattle reminds me of coffee and I like coffee and coffee reminds me of Starbucks and Starbucks reminds me I need to get a small business loan to get my next cup of coffee there and don't be fooled "Seattle's Best" is merely Starbucks in disguise! Did you know there is a Starbucks directly across the street from a Starbucks on 6th Street in Austin Texas? All a sinister plot to extract my entire paycheck by way of coffee. I do love coffee and even more is the Caramel Machiato and the Cinnamon Dulce venti which is just a fancy way of saying "give me a coffee that has its own under-toe! So if you are a coffee l;over like me then here is a new twist on these two high octane beauties. Now I'm off to buy a second coffee pot and more coffee!
