~ Working intensely at making big strides in 2016. ~
~ Cappuccinos at KC establishments and new cocktails at Fort Collins bars - this week was tasty. ~
~ Sadie took a very old car and three compadres to San Diego - beverage enchantment, and what we will call "adventure," ensued. ~
~ Our top 10 drinking experiences in Columbus, not in any order. A great city that treated us well. ~
~ Coffee, connections and a cocktail in St. Louis, & drinks with friends in FoCo. ~
~ Coffee in Denver for Sadie and mid-week cocktails + coffee for Jason and Michael in KC. ~
I ran some errands on a Saturday morning and decided to hop around to three different, yet terrific, coffee shops within a mile from one another in KC's midtown. What developed was not just a flight of unique and rewarding espressos, but also what coffee shops should deliver - a taste of community.
Welcome to the new #BeverageLife. We share our drink experiences, and you get to know us a little better. Thoughts? Chime in!
Jason: Caffeine Crawl OKC Prep Trip
It will always be tough to narrow down the best beverage experiences when we travel. I went to 10+ places in a day and a half, driving to Oklahoma City and back to KC. Coffee Slingers handed over a nice shot of their Huckleberry Espresso, and a Ritual blend as a double shot at Cafe Evoke was also on point for pleasing the demitasse orders. Had single-origin brews worth bragging about at Elemental Coffee, Syrup and Reverie Coffee (Wichita), and Topeca Coffee brews at both Cuppies and Joe and Gray Owl. The latte with Mariposa Coffee and a Bloody Mary using Oklahoma distilled Prairie Wolf vodka at Kitchen 324 could not have paired better with the biscuits and gravy plate I had - fuel for the drive back to KC on Sunday. The frosting on top was getting to catch up with Brad and Chris from Black Mesa Brewing Co. over beers and comfort food at the new Pump Bar. Exciting beverage things continue to happen in Oklahoma.
