Restaurant Spotlight: Lambs Bread Cafe

Today I was working in Columbia, and had to stop at my favorite little gem for lunch.  If you head into downtown, and swing to the opposite side of Main you come to a very shabby little block building called the Lambs Bread Cafe.  Do not let the outside atmosphere sway you from entering! The outside is filled with all sorts of little statues that take on a very distinct African vibe....more

A Café Confession

When I visited Segovia during my first trip to Spain, E’s parents suggested stopping at a café. During my second trip to Spain, E’s parents suggested a café stopover when we arrived in Toledo. And in my most recent trip, E’s friends Carla and Germán suggested stopping at a café in El Escorial before heading back to Madrid.It finally dawned on me to ask E if a café break was a typical Spanish custom. “Yees,” he said with a patient smile....more

Bubo Pasteleria and Chocolatier in Barcelona, Spain

It was a dreary day in Barcelona, Spain. The drizzly, grey, and chilly weather dampened my mood much like the Pacific Northwest’s. Insistent on exploring solely by foot, I walked alone from my hostel near MACBA to the Museu Picasso. Recalling how I was a mere inch away from getting mugged (in a failed effort to find Adria’s burger joint), I conscientiously absorbed in the street’s spirit and simultaneously watched my back....more

Calling Out All Cougars!

Today’s Blog Post was sort of like a joint effort between myself and the yummy mummies at the local Second Cup Cafe. It all started with my girlfriend, who met me for a coffee after school drop off. “What are you writing about today?” she asked. “Not quite sure. Was thinking about Cougars. What do you think?” I replied. In no time, we had about 5 women there, all throwing ideas my way, me typing as quickly as I could. I know why I never go to that particular Cafe to write. It’s VERY distracting. But FUN!...more

You had me at yummy mummies...and now I get to "mind-blowing sex."

Hotttt. Sex sells, loving it.more

Declutter your local cafe and restaurant experience

Can you get a local restaurant or café to stop using disposables? I recently asked the 3000+ people I "know" on Facebook and Twitter if any of them had successfully gotten an establishment to do just that. In respose, a number of people mentioned restaurants near them that promoted reusables, offered biodedegradable to-go containers, and the like -- but none said that these restaurants had actually made the change due to anything customers said. ...more
