Jamie on the Bongos

this is jamie. when he comes to homer's he almost always gets a 20 oz. angel caramello with whipped cream and caramel drizzle. yesterday he played his bongos outside of homer's. you can hear jamie's bongo expertise here. we're also glad to welcome linda and bob to the blog! they received extra punches on their free drink card when they told us they read the blog on wednesday.

Two More Readers! Yay!

hey, guess what? this little blog attracted two more readers yesterday! how do we know? kristi and becky stepped up to the register and told us they read the latest entry about cavemen and tepid coffee. they each received double punches on their card toward a free drink. wow! if this keeps up, we'll have to record a different song about the blog.

Blame the Cavemen

why do we drink hot coffee instead of room temperature coffee? a recent article says the answer goes all the way back to the cavemen.

Almost Arnold Palmer Time

the warmer than usual temps have already made some folks thirsty for summer time drinks... like this arnold palmer that laura poured a couple of weeks ago. when it gets REALLY hot outside we'll make these drinks with homemade lemonade, but if you can't wait, we can make one for you with bottled lemonade that we have on hand. cheers.

John's Custom Chucks

john ainsworth is a regular customer at homer's. he orders the same drink every day: small skinny mexican mocha with whip. there aren't too many variations to his routine, so when something DOES change, it's easy to notice... like his custom made converse chucks pictured above. they are hard to miss. ask him about the other 5 or 6 pairs he recently bought at the converse store.
