Gossip Folks

Do you hear that? It’s the soft whispers of rumors delicately floating around the ‘Cullough.

Rumor 1: Jalapeno Margarita at Panchitos
I. KNOW.
If you’ve been to a bar lately, you know spicy drinks are a thing. I even dabbled in making my own habenero infused vodka a year ago (it was awesome, mix it with cucumber vodka and die with good feels).
But I never thought Panchitos would attempt to follow this trendy trend.
As this is just a rumor, I haven’t seen or tasted this margarita, but my source (thanks, Frohoho) said that it was pretty good and they even do some sort of chili powder rim.
Don’t expect this marg to be a classic Panchy $2. Rumor has it that the jalapeno margarita clocks in at around $7, which is pretty standard anywhere else.

This is a rumor I hope to confirm within 7 days.

Rumor 2: It’s going to snow tomorrow
weather
Those are snowflakes for Friday’s picture, people! Snow day Snow day Snow day Snow day Snow day Snow day Snow day Snow day Snow day!
All the seasons in one week. We are so lucky, San Antonio!
Companion rumor: Sunday is sunny and 75.

Rumor 3: Patty Mills like coffee
Yes, it’s been confirmed  that Spurs guard Patty Mills may like to drink coffee.

He was spotted at Local Coffee’s Pearl location last weekend(thanks again, Froyoyoha). His beverage of choice was unknown, but it’s likely it was some sort of coffee drink. They do have chai tea at Local but he doesn’t seem like the type.

If anyone has any information about any of the rumors listed above, feel free to share! There is nothing I like more than a little hot ‘Cullough goss!
Except for maybe this song and video:

Meet and Treat at Beat Street

Caffeine is a hell of a drug

cups

This morning I finally got my act together enough to try Beat Street Coffee on Main on my way to work.

The hood as been badly needing a coffee place like this. Candlelight is just a little too far for the on-a-whim coffee dash from my place. I know, I’m being picky, but whatever.

They serve lunch and dinner and beer/wine, too, and some breakfast foods. I spied a quiche that looked good and some pre-packaged fancy oatmeal. The friendly gal behind the counter said that lunch is their busiest time right now.

That corner booth is calling my name for next time

I popped in this morning about 7:30 and I was the only customer (not surprising, 7:30 is a little rough on a Friday, or any day). Because I don’t usually like ordering normal coffee at coffee places because I can make it at home, I opted for an old friend I hadn’t had since my Italian hiatus: ESPRESSO!

GUUUUURL it was so good, I had forgotten what that bright, bitter love liquid was all about.

ALL GONE!!

Since when I woke up I wasn’t sure if I’d have time to stop by Beat Street, I went ahead and made coffee at home. So my espresso loveliquid had been preceded by TWO George Washington mugs full of coffee. Needless to say…

THE DRIVE TO WORK WAS GREAT!!!

I took the stairs, instead of the elevator, to the 10th floor in hopes that it would balance out my sudden ABUNDANCE OF ENERGY!

NOPE!

 

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
