I’m out of town for the weekend, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and I get to drink my daily espresso at an ESPRESSO ROYALE! it’s a bit surreal being a regular customer in a place so very similar to the one I’ve come to know as home. but it’s nice here. and it’s surprising that it’s still so much like any other espresso royale, considering that the guy who managed it before bought it from the company. anyway. not much new here. . . just waiting for the moratorium on my website to end.
