Girls Night Out

Join us December 10th @ the orginal Moon Monkey Coffee named Higher Grounds....I know, I know the sign still says Moon Monkey Coffee Company...It is Higher Grounds with the Monkey Inside :) Moon Monkey Coffee that is...can you belief the band Bare Naked Ladies ...saw that on the sign in Septmeber right before the take over and thought their was a monkey inside...the entire band came in looking for the monkey. So funny. The band was in town to play @ an event and fell for their own trick. Guess, the came up the name "Bare Naked Ladies" because when their name was placed on the sign...the place filled up and guessed it "no bare naked ladies" just the name of the band.... but it did draw in the crowd. anyway...back to December 10th. Girls night out! My girlfriend has begun selling Mary Kay to make ends meet and being the supportive friend I am I decided to have a Mary Kay Party... thought it would be fun to have @ the orginal Moon Monkey Coffee Company and create a girls night out. I know I have(5) friends I can I don't know if those five friends need or WANT MaryKay Make-up but I'm gonna ask'em to bring their fav five friends to create a girls night out! so...if I can find five friends with December 10th available...and open from 6P-8:30PM and they bring 5'll be 25 gals with a brief night out over extra ordinary coffee giggles and some glam. Ya, ya I know the above picture has nothing to do with anything...but it's all I could's me & Mac Powell from Third Day this summer. I spoted him in the crowd and became a geek in :30 seconds. forgot to take my ear plugs out before the flash went off!

Live link and I was spoted in Starbucks Today

Greetings Moon Monkey Junkies~ welcome to the blog...Well as many of you know we have a new Starbucks in town about 1/2 mile down the street from The original Moon Monkey Coffee Higher Grounds. Many of the Moon Monkey regulars are now returning to Starbucks at the exit of Moon Monkey Coffee on a regular basis @ Higher Grounds :-( I had a meeting today with (2) of those regulars and they suggested we meet@ Starbucks, ugh, I joined them with much dread...afraid of what familiar faces I would find behind the counter and in the chairs. I always love to see what Starbucks has to offer in terms of coffee and press pots etc. As usual all the packaging is excellent & the selection varied.

I was there :30 minutes or less... saw and was heckled by 5 regular Moon Monkey Junkies. Nice to see their faces and wished it was down the street. One asked for my card promising to order soon. 1 expressed interest in ordering coffee for the holidays and the others...were my co-workers @ Shine.FM.

I look forward to talking Shoppe here on the blog...Coffee Shoppe that is even if it's virtual! enjoy the site & remember if you are a regular Moon Monkey Junkie and are a regular please don't order on the website...I don't want you to pay shipping. I will hand deliver.

We have a new "thanks & giving" Blend for the Thanksgiving Holiday. A blend of medium and dark roasted African and Indonesian beans. Full of favor, smooth and worth giving to your Thanksgiving Host as a way to say Thanks for the turkey!
