I never got a chance to catch you in Anaheim, but I did watch your first round performance and was happy to see you advance! You did a great job and I heard murmurs that the sig drink was delicious. I wanted to try it.

Hope you are well, sir!

Hey, man. Our shop fell through so Megan and I switched our focus to roasting. Jamin and Amanda helped us pick oot some nice greens and, BAM!, we got our first farmers' market thing this Saturday. We're focusing on Farmers' Markets and home delivery (via web sales).

It was sad to hear that you left the Minnesota; your talents will be missed. I am sure that our paths will cross again. Let me know where I can find you behind the bar, I am always looking for a reason to go to Seattle.
