It’s Mardi Gras! Someone Flash Us!

Hey fellow coffee lovers,

It is Mardi Gras! Whoo hoo! This has literal relevance to me OTHER than the fact that it’s FAT TUESDAY. Which gives us all an excuse to eat doughnuts. Here at Sweet Spot, we don’t actually have doughnuts. We *do* have lots of delicious cupcakes and desserts, however. Which means you should come in. And eat some. And eat some more. Trust me, it doesn’t even count, it’s Fat Tuesday! Beads for everyone!

Also, someone just came in with a large bottle of a) white wine and b) some vodka-like drink, which reminded me that we are a BYOB. Come in and drink and eat desserts! You can do that! Because it’s Mardi Gras!

(And really, what else are you going to do on your boring, relatively chilly Tuesday afternoon?)

Mundo’s guide to sustainable living: Orange Candles

That orange was delicious, but it still has more to give.  Fill half of an orange peel with cooking oil, leaving the core (wick) of the rind above the top. Let it sit a min or two so the oil is soak up and light.  It may take a little longer to light than a candle but it will burn for most of the day giving off a citrus aroma.
