Peace, Love, and Coffee

A diary of the wonderful and wacky goings on at Coffee to the People, an independent coffeehouse located at 1206 Masonic Avenue in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco, California.

Pardon our mess

We have a lovely skylight over the living room portion of the shop. But it leaks. And while it's not raining now, we know that eventually the rain will come and all of the remodeling we did of that area will be destroyed. So, despite the inconvenience, this week we moved the furniture out of that nook to make room for the roofer--only, the roofer didn't show!

Perhaps it wouldn't have been so bad if yesterday had been like most Mondays--slow, slow, slow. But instead the shop was jumping (probably because City College, USF, and UCSF are back in session).

Ideally we would have had this work done before we opened, but our landlord kept balking at the cost of repairing the skylight (every estimate was "too high") and he kept procrastinating until we had no choice but to open.

Our landlord has assured us that the work will be done by Friday (Saturday and Sunday are our busiest days so we can't afford to have the work continue over the weekend). I'll believe it when I see it.

Glad to hear the coffee shop's been busy -- though I hope you're not overworked --

P.S. -- Any way you could de-italicize your blog posts? Makes it a lil tough to read...

Siel,

Thanks for your concern, but it's Megan who's suffering, not me. She's the one who does all the hard work around here.

As for the italics, consider them gone.
