Saturday Fun

The Barista-ing was hit!  I had never been to Hardback Coffee before- but for that Coconut Americano and the Cotton Candy Frappe I WILL be heading back soon!  And they have a drive-through!

Elle looks like she could have used some coffee…

The live music was wonderful!  It was the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning!  Friends, family, coffee, music  and comfy chairs!

Brody and Ava had so much fun and even got in a little dancing 🙂

Kurt’s Grandma Wood is in town for this whole month of January!  It’s hard to say if she enjoyed the music or the Great Grand-babies more… I bet it was just the perfect morning for her too, I have never seen her smile so big 🙂

And to end this fun Saturday we were invited to share with our friends as Ryan Turri screened his first feature film!  A date, a hilarious movie, joy and celebration, friends and family… loved this day!

Celebrity Baristas

Saturday morning coffee, anyone?

Asper Kourt has been asked to be celebrity baristas at Hardback Coffee (@ Hastings on Candelaria and Tramway) for the morning on Saturday!  They will also be playing a short acoustic set for those of us out there visiting!  In true Asper Kourt form, all donations (and TIPS) will be benefiting a special group.  This time it is The Adult Literacy Fund!  See you there from 10 to noon tomorrow!
