Hello Mr. Doyle!
Guess what, I have an opportunity to work at a coffee shop in Prescott AZ (where we now live). They are called Method Coffee--great shop. Same idea as Slingers--really great group of guys and gals. They have an opening in April....cross your fingers for me!
How's life? What's new?
Oh and Matt and I got married. :) So I've joined the married folk ranks. It's good.
I'm not up to too much, these days. This economy is slowing my business pretty good. Companies are more hesitant to spend the money on services they actually need to succeed, because they perceive it as "extra". It's not good for any party involved.
That having been said, I'm looking for work. Lubbock is pretty vacant in regards to coffee, so I'm looking for non-coffee work (shock). I don't want to, but bills need to be paid!
Replacing the group valve is usually a pretty easy job. I've done it many times. Let me know if you need any help.
James, I got a coffeeslingers card posted to my board a while ago. Don't know if it was your doing, but I'll surely stop in next time I visit OKC (I'll be honest I don't know when that will be though). Thanks for the good words, I'm glad you enjoyed Coal Creek... Cheers!
