Jet City Espresso

Jet City Espresso

Jet City Espresso

Once upon a time, there was a nifty little espresso shop just south of Seattle.  Scratch that – it’s still there!

Jet City Espresso was supposed to close at the end of last month, but according to the Renton Reporter, it is going to stay open until at least the end of this month:

Jet City was supposed to vacate its Second and Main corner shop by Aug. 31, to make room for a six-story apartment and retail complex called Second and Main Apartments. But the project is behind schedule, and Natelson was granted more time. Now Jet City has until the end of September, maybe longer.

The charm takes a backseat to the fine cups of coffee they having brewing, but it’s all worth the short drive down to Renton.  If you have a chance, head down and try it out!

The Link Rundown

I’m worthless.  As John Cho would say, I am not worthwhile.  I claimed to be bringing the blog back, then let it sit dormant for weeks on end.  But have no fear!  I bring you a mass quantity of links (some of them old) for your viewing pleasure; enjoy!

A.V. Club Interview with Rainn Wilson
Who doesn’t love Rainn Wilson?  This interview has some good background information, although a lot of it is about The Rocker, which we all know flopped miserably.  Still worth it for gems such as this regarding Juno: ” Sexual tension… I think Ellen Page is hott, double-t hott. All that sexual tension will probably be on the 25th-anniversary DVD as the torrid erotic scenes between Rollo and Juno. I think they bathe in a bathtub of Sunny D and get it on.”

Better Late Than Never: Watchmen
With the greatest graphic novel of all time coming to the big screen next year, there has been a lot of hoopla surrounding the release (including Fox suing Warner Bros. over rights issues).  This article tells you why the story is so incredible, and why everyone should read it.

Former SuperSonics owner dropping Bennett lawsuit
I just wanted to make sure you saw what a slimy hack Howard Schulz is (at least in the sports world…I’m not necessarily judging his coffee or business ethics).  He tries to save face by suing Clay Bennett after he realizes the city of Seattle hates the fact that he sold it a businessman from a city desparetely in want of an NBA team, and then slips it out late on a Friday that he’s dropping the lawsuit.  For shame, Howard.

Heart to McCain campaign: stop using “Barracuda”
Nothing makes me happier than a great rock band telling an old fart to screw off.  And a local great rock band at that!

Yes, it was a terrible call Husky nation
Ted Miller gets all the points right, including the fact that the call isn’t what made us lose the game.  The referees should be suspended, but so should our pathetic defense and inept offense.  I still support Tyrone Willingham, but I won’t object if he’s gone after this season because we don’t go to a bowl game.

That’s all for now, hopefully I’ll be back soon with more great ramblings and links!
