the mighty foam strength…

double breve latte

so – trapped inside from an unforeseen ice storm in the middle of Dallas, a little cabin fever set in and so i trekked out on foot into the Icepocalypse with my beloved sidekick and partner in crime (my 15 year old daughter) to Starbucks and indulged in the greatest, most scrumpdillyicious breve latte…

the foam was that strong and that fan-farking-tastic, that the straw stood up by itself.

Dr. Doolittle…stopped off for a latte

so the spring skies open up, and what better to do…than take your MENAGERIE out for coffee?

i picture that Dr. Dolittle is just offscreen, and his favorite companian Polynesia the parrot is entertaining the other patrons…while Gub-Gub the pig takes a siesta underneath the table.

if this wasn&#39t in this suburbs…i&#39d expect Dr. Doolittle to slide by on his giant snail, pick up his travelers and be on his way with a latte in his hand.

coffee klatch

foam flower in my latte
latte art by J. Ryan Buxbaum

stay tuned for regular episodes of & coffee klatch:
interviews and tête-à-têtes with some cool people –

some i already know, and some i&#39ve just met.

all have a unique point of view, and
some great off-the-beaten-path stories.

and, those of you who know me…know that it&#39s just another
good excuse for me to have coffee, with people…period.

i can&#39t promise it&#39s always going to be coffee and not a glass of wine,
or a drink that involves vodka – but hey, that would ruin the expression;
so for all intents & purposes, we&#39ll just call it &#34coffee.&#34
