Pink Casts, The Side Bar & Firelit
A couple things going on around here that everyone should know about.
1. Chris Baca is back from surgery (hot pink cast and all!), and is ready to shred the side bar with Cole tomorrow. You should check in and say what’s up, and then ask to see pictures of his leg before they casted it. Or don’t do that. Yeah, actually you probably shouldn’t do that. Sorry I mentioned it. Anyway, here’s the quick run-down on what exactly the side bar is, for those who haven’t been yet:
The Sidebar is Verve’s weekend line for unique espresso, cappuccinos, one & ones, and pour over coffee. You’ll find it all happening in the alley between the cafe and roastery, but it’s only on Saturdays and Sundays between 9am and 12pm. Be sure to check it out for a chance to try off-the-menu single origin espresso and Hario Woodneck pour overs. As an added bonus, the line is sure to be short and sweet. Check out this week’s menu here.
All right, on to #2: Our friends at Firelit just released another coffee liqueur, and they used VCR bean for this one (officially in stores Tuesday)! They don’t mess around with anything less than the best ingredients and practices, and we couldn’t be happier to be associated with such great people.
