Drink of the Week for Jan 30th, 2004: Roman Coffee
What we had to say
Rain or shine, hail or snow, we faithfully deliver Drink of the Week to your bulging inbox every week. Well... maybe not with shine, we'd probably be outside or something. And sometimes when it's raining, we stay in bed. Actually, you're probably lucky that we even remember to send this darn thing out sometimes. Between that and finding our pants, the end of the week can be pretty tough.
So this week's drink is a nice, warm coffee that involves flames and burning. We heard it was sort of cold in those places that are away from the west coast. The sort of cold that extinguishes all life within ten seconds of peeking out of the bonfire that you're sheltering in. As west-coasters trying to shed the arrogant image that we are told we have about weather, we paused for a minute to try to imagine what it's like and tried to share in the hardship of such bitter cold. We were interrupted when the all-model beach volleyball team started hitting us with those giant pool noodles though, so we never really got to the empathy point that maybe we should have. We mean, c'mon... they had pool noodles! So we hope you won't hold it against us, and because we're not above bribes, here's a drink. Did we mention it involves flames?
