Espresso on Neil now catering to fandoms

When stopping by for my Wed $2 latte, I noticed the specials board had some fun & nerdy listings:

  • Butterbeer Polar Cap
  • Bloody Dragon
  • Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster

Being a nerd (and frequenter of ERC), I could intuit the ingredients of the first two. Although I had my doubts that without alcohol the PGGB could live up to the promise of “having your brains smashed in by a slice of lemon wrapped round a large gold brick,” once I got the lowdown from its inventor, I was convinced. She also assures me it is delicious to boot.

I love when baristas take the time to share their creations with the public, even moreso in a fun way. And it’s good to know that the hoopy froods at ERC Neil St. really know where their towel is.
