The forecast was for dry weather Friday and Saturday and then a pattern of rain for the next week so I decided to strike while it was relatively dry for ride # 7, the finish line of the Coffeeneuring challenge 2017. Not only did the weather gods smile on me but so did the deities of the traffic lights. There are 5 lights between me and my destination so 10 for the round trip. I made it through them all without having to stop! I am pretty sure that is a first.
My destination today was Freshy's, they have been open for 12 years and are within 2 miles of my house and this was my first visit! They have a funky living room vibe. eclectic furniture and arcade games scattered throughout.
I could have even sat next to the (gas) fireplace if I'd wanted to.
Instead I sat at the Space Invaders table top arcade game, probably a good thing it wasn't working or I might have had to feed it some quarters for old times sake.
Even as I finish this years challenge I am thinking of next year, Olympia coffee, based in the state capitol is going to open a shop in West Seattle. They had a target open of October 1st but look no closer to opening than they did when I first noticed their store front 3 weeks ago. So they may be on the roster for 2018.
