If You're Looking For a Sign...

...look no further! there is a sign at homer's that promotes our blog (the thing that you're reading right now). everyone who reads the blog has a chance at a free drink, extra punches on your drink card, finding answers to pop culture trivia that could make you the "phone a friend" friend! today's ticket to a freebie takes us back to the coffeehouse 5, a group that played at homer's many years ago. listen to the track below, count the number of times "i'm a barista" is sung. the first person with the right answer (after 11:00) gets a free drink today! everyone else gets an extra punch on your drink card for mentioning ANYTHING from this post. cheers.

I'm a Barista by the coffeehouse 5

Hot Coffee!

i haven't heard anyone talk about this movie in a long time. does anyone remember martian child? the first person (after 8:30) to mention john cusack, bobby coleman, or amanda peet (the three actors in the video above) gets a free drink today. everyone else can get two punches towards a free drink just for mentioning "martian child" or "hot coffee."

Coffee Zombies

i worked with kyle the last two hours of my shift yesterday afternoon, and we talked about the coffee zombies that come to homer's. regular zombies are typically in movies, in an entranced state, and are usually undead. COFFEE zombies, however, exist in real life. i've seen them. they have the same slow heavy gestures as movie zombies-- but they require coffee so they can resemble something that passes for a human. that's why i'm here. i feed coffee zombies so you don't have to.

Let's Pack The House

the subs are playing tonight at 7:30. 'surf, swing, and spy' music is the best way to describe the sound with songs like: pipeline, all of me, and charade. in a blatant attempt to fill homer's to capacity, you will get 2 punches on your drink card (after 6:30pm) when you order a drink and tell a barista, "i came to hear the subs!"

Humans Meet the Nerdbots

there is a kansas city couple who make little sculptures out of vintage household items and call their works of art, "nerdbots." the 'bots don't move, talk, or serve any real function... they just look cool. in case you're looking for the coffee connection (since this is the homer's blog) watch for the nerdbot with a flowered mug for a head at 1:17.

Monday Coffee Trivia

ok... i cross referenced the answer to the following coffee trivia question: in what century did it become popular to add milk to coffee? the first person (after 8:30 am) who knows the answer gets a free drink at homer's today. if you know the country where a café au lait was used for medicinal purposes, you can get 2 punches on your card. cheers!

We Know How to Cool It

one of the limiting factors of being called a "coffeehouse" is that most people don't think of coffee as anything but hot... and let's be honest, who wants hot drinks on a hot day? at homer's we know how to "cool" it with drinks like fruit smoothies, iced lattés, shakes, malts, ICE CREAM! there are other cold drinks on our menu, but there is only so much space on this blog... so leave your old 'hot' drink ideas at home, and come to homer's for a cool down!
