The Magic Cup of Joe

So, this particular cup of coffee was set down yesterday morning upon leaving Lincoln, Nebraska. I forgot about it until I stopped for gas 275 miles later. Yet, by some, miracle of physics and Freightliner engineering, there it stands. Bravo, Mr. Coffee, Bravo.

Greg's Allegory of The Monster

While drinking Monster Energy Drink through a jumbo Red Vine, I had two epiphanies:
1. I had discovered a way to make Monster taste even worse than normal.
2. Necessity is the mother of invention, but not all inventions are a success. Just because something is comfortable and expedient, it isn't necessarily good. The next time we purchase a meal, we should ask ourselves - is it good, or is it just comfortable?

B29 Streatery, bringing comfort, expediency and a great culinary experience to the Boise area, and we don't even need a linen napkin.
