it's cold in nyc (no more bread til 2012) / by joseybakerbread

yo cats and dogs

it's cold in nyc. so cold that cathy and i just had to drop in to a lil noodle bar to pick up some of this:

(free loaf to first person who can identify said noodle bar)

good lord, this $hit is just SO GOOD. and aside from making me drool all over myself, this trip got me so so super excited because i picked up a dandy lil cookbook that is giving me some totally righteous new ideas for the cafe... when the times comes i am going to hit you right where it counts.

but how in the heck am i talking about how cold it is in nyc? cuz i'm hangin in nyc, and i've grown so used to that spoiled cali sunshine that it feels so bitterly cold here it makes me wonder if there's any warmth left in the world.

but then i drink this and everything feels ok:

i'm kidding. but only halfway. dunkin donuts hazelnut coffee is one of the crappier things, but it has a special place in my heart. i spent many teenage nights slurping it down with a half dozen disgusting donuts, driving around on Vermont back roads, occasionally coaxing a buddy to take the wheel while i climbed onto the roof to enjoy the evening in a more intimate manner.

what in the heck are you talking about josey??

don't yuck my yum, i'm just reminiscing. anyway, that's neither here nor there. i'm back east, so no bread for the next two weeks. i'm back up and at em in 2012.

another word to the wise - sometimes you burn things:

it's okay, it's part of the learning process. if you really care about what you're doing, it's going to piss you off, but don't go letting it ruin your day. just put it on the front of your bicycle and giggle about it. or maybe try to hide it as a "rock sculpture" in the neighborhood garden.

just don't do it again, or you're a total as$hole.

special thanks to everyone involved in the coffee + toast bar + talent show that went down a couple weeks ago at 736 Divis:

the talent show was organized by the Wigg Party, a righteous crew of folks who are fighting the good fight. keep your eyes peeled for more from them in the coming days, weeks, months.

also keep your eyes peeled for a coffee + toast bar in the new space in the very near future. like, as in january.

what?!? i thought the new spot wasn't opening til the spring?!?

you are oh so very right. but that ain't gonna stop us from getting you coffee + toast in the meantime. why? cuz we think you're cute, that's why. more to come lovelies.
