Have you met the new shop girls?

Perhaps you noticed on a recent visit that there was a strange, brown-haired girl working the cash register.  Maybe you wondered, “What the heck, is Lisa taking a day off or some crap like that?”

Well, yes, I was sort of was!  We’ve got two new faces (both brown-haired ladies) in the shop these days, so you’ll want to meet them both.  I made them answer questions (I threatened to fire ’em if their answers didn’t meet my extremely high standards) so that you all, the loveliest customers in the land, could get to know them better.

-Where are you from?

-What’s your favorite thing to drink on a cold, drizzly winter day? And what’s your favorite thing to eat with that drink?

-What excites you about wine/beer/cider?
A: This is corny, but I love the communal nature of wine and beer. Portland is awesome because you can make a new friend based on a mutual love of an Oregon brewery. (Or in my case you can make enemies by divulging an allergy induced aversion to IPAs.)
-Tell us about your favorite restaurant.
A: There are so many great restaurants that I love or have yet to try! I am a big fan of Che Café and I could live off of Taqueria Santa Cruz, although I’m not sure how long I would live.
-What kind of music will be playing on your shift?
A:  I’m usually bumping Jay Z or Wu Tang. If I had too much wine the night before then I’ll be playing The National.
-Breaking Bad or The Sopranos?
A: I haven’t watched either. How about Downton Abbey or Walking Dead?
-Favorite place that you’ve traveled.
A: My happy place is a solitary evening under the stars with South Sister to my left, Broken Top to my right and not a soul for miles.
-It’s your day off.  Where are you?
A: I spend my weekdays getting educated at PCC in an effort to earn a BS in Geology. #forscience
