Marc and I have VERY weird conversations, very weird. Most people would probably look at us very strangely if they overheard us. I am sure there are still people talking about this particular conversation we had in Best Buy.
We want to start a coffee shop/restaurant/bar geared toward Yippies. The coffee shop, of course, would be made from reclaimed wood, serve organic coffee and scones with the freshest of ingredients. Only singer-songwriter music will be played. Only Mac products will be installed. And it will be a requirement that the baristas will have wrist tattoos.
The restaurant will serve hummus and pita as their bread option, avocado as their condiment, and again, all organic. Waiters and waitresses will be required to wear thick, black framed glasses. Our logo, similar to a Mac, will be an avocado outline instead of an apple. We might go out of our comfort zone and play music other than singer-songwriter. But it will be acoustic.
The bar will have only micro brews. And the bookshelves will be lined with the classics. Debates around politics and medical coverage will take place. Live bands will play while white guys hold their beers and only move their upper bodies. When live bands aren't playing rugby and futbol matches will be on the televisions.
Of course in each area there will be hook ups for laptops and iPods. Bathrooms will have soy candles only! That are lemongrass, basil, and sandalwood. Of course no paper towels will be found, only earth friendly options to dry those hands of yours.
No need to tip anyone either, everyone has chosen this profession because they "aren't mainstream", don't want to "work for the man", they "do it cause they love it". Plus, they are only working part time while they attend classes to be a social worker or environmental saver person.
WASPY NAMES ONLY! Do not apply unless your name is Barrett, Winston, Ani, or Sayrah. If we really like you though and get a good Yippie vibe, we'll just use your last name if we don't like your first name.
And yes, this would be a favorite hang out for Marc and me! We would absolutely love this place cause we are Yippies!
What else would you like to see in our coffee shop/restaurant/bar? Oh...we need good name ideas!
