We don’t condone living on just beer. Or even just coffee: but we are willing to share the spotlight and let you know that today is International Beer Day. To quote their site “International Beer Day is a global celebration of beer, taking place in pubs, breweries, and backyards all over the world. It’s a day for beer lovers everywhere to raise a toast to our brewers and bartenders and rejoice in the greatness of beer!”

You didn’t wake up until 3 in the afternoon. Who are we to judge? All we want to do is serve you breakfast, so come on in and we’ll help brighten you right up!
