Kiosk Birthday and Cleaning Party!

First Cup January 18, 2006

It's been one year now to the day since the opening of the kiosk on Linden Street. To celebrate, the entire Blue Bottle barista staff gathered at the cart to set about those tasks best left for a year in order to become truly challenging.

We rolled the beast to the street, removed all its guts, and set about the deep cleaning measures.

Oldman climbed into the rafters to excavate the lighting from the layers of dust.

"Doobie-doobie-doobie-achoo-achoo-achoo!"

Meanwhile Manboy, Boyman and T-bone attacked the cart with tools and rags and foul language and eventually managed to get all the pieces back together.

"When we drop this 450 in there this bitch'll really kick ass!"

Boychick pitched in by walking around and...umm...well she walked around a lot.

"If you tell them where I am, I will kill you."

It took several hours of concentrated barista power, but in the end, only a few things were broken and the gum had been extracted from the sidewalk. Good job team!

Then it was time to drink.

The crew retired to James' apartment for a petit soirée complete with champagne and caviar. And you think we're kidding.

Cabby fixed up the goods on some small buckwheat pancakes with a funny name.

Though tastey, not all were impressed.

Manboy: "Ho-hum, it's not even imported."

Actually, we did quite well with food from our friends at Boulette's Larder, Fatted Calf, and Miette Cakes. We pigged out on pig of various consistencies and enjoyed many sweet and colorful fruit options. We got to see some of our co-workers, that because of the nature of our cross-bay business, we don't normally see. Here are some of the attendees.

...and Ivy. "Where am I and how did I get this dog between my legs?!"

So here's to everyone that made this last year possible. Thanks, it's been a lot of fun and we're looking forward to many more years of serving quality drinks without having to clean a bathroom. Cheers!

>My first genric Viagra.

Ok so I don't have any impotence problems, I'm not over 40, I get it up just with the prospect of having sex, so why I'm I taking viagra, sineldafil citrate, cialis, tadalafil, levitra or any other safe for of generic viagra? Well it's just plain curiosity. This past weekend was my 5th wedding aniversary and I figure I'd treat my lady to a surprise dinner, some drinks at a fashion bar and the hit the sack with everything we got. I took my online viagra, which I bought online from www.xlpharmacy.com, a couple of hours after dinner, but I calculated no more than 5 hours before "crunch time". Everything was going very well, the dinner was very romantic, then I gave her a necklace I had preiously bought, went to a very crowded bar, very good looking girls all around and just before we left I felt something growing in my pants. The generic viagra, which I bought at a discount price cause I purchased around 20 viagra pills and re-sold them to my co-workes and I ended up with 5 free pills for myself because of the small profit I made, was making effect. The information I had read about online generic viagra said that it alone would cause an erection, but just the feeling of all those thight buts caresing me on the dance floor, and my woman boldly grabbing my nutsack just made my friend Bob become the Hulkster. So we got home and I was ready to explode, took of all our clothes and got to it, not before I took my time down there, pleasing my wife until I felt her shivering and moaning. After that we tried a lot of positions in more than 4 goes at it. I tell you, I finished every time and my erection wouldn't come down... she noticed and I think i made her more aroused. By the next morning we're still hitting skins until she, and I, are totally exhausted, but still I'm "pitching tent". I actually bought the generic online viagra version, cialis, which is supposed to last even more. Needless to say my girl was impressed and I'm very happy, I think I'll pop one of those again next weekend.
