Left Bank Cafe

My brother, who owns the Left Bank Cafe in Slayton, Minnesota, sent me this shirt. He said I should be sure to mention that you can order coffee from him on-line and it is shipped while still warm from the roaster. I can personally vouch that it is very good coffee indeed and few people know more about roasting coffee than he does.

Shameless plug, I know, but he made me do this.

  • Left Bank Cafe (My Brother's)

  • By the way, Bar Man went to the Bronx Zoo yesterday and in addition to being totally worn out by his three young nieces got quite a bit of sun, as you can probably see. I plan on working on my bar room pallor a bit tomorrow though.

    I know you probably get people telling you how envious they are *all* the time. So I won't say it :-)

    I'll just say Feilte, Prost, Nasdrovye and Cheers instead. If I ever get to retire myself (sigh), I think I might do the same. But with "cafes" in Amsterdam ;-). With aspirations like that, I doubt I will ever retire though.

    I found this quote while I was browsing your blog:
    Even though a number of people have tried, no one has yet found a way to drink for a living. ~Jean Kerr
    I think you may have come close.

    I too have spent time in Amsterdam and it would be tough to hit 1000 Coffee Shops in a year. Just too easy to settle in.

    Come back to the Bronx - Riverdale or Woodlawn have many fine establishments clustered together, especially Woodlawn. And considering your affinity for Irish bars, you might never go back to Brooklyn.

    I saw your earlier post about Photobucket. I see that you are still using Photobucket, so maybe you upgraded. If not recommended yet, how about It also has a limit, but your pictures get free publicity in the Flickr community.

    PS. A fellow blogger from Xanga pointed me to your site. Not sure if you know this, but you can activate the option so that commenters can be non-Bloggers (i.e. Xangans or anonymous).

    I upgraded Photobucket. It seemed the easiest thing to do. I allowed anonymous once and within minutes had someone posting porn so I changed it back.
