Yesterday we said goodbye to one of our favorite places, our downstairs neighbor, the Uncommon Grounds coffee shop, who as of today has turned off the java latte machine, packed up the chocolate covered espresso beans and, to our deepest regret, closed their doors.
We gathered with our favorite Uncommon Grounds gals, Janice and Megan, along with many of their loyal patrons in an all day come-and-go farewell.
Everyone at Third Degree will especially miss them for lots of reasons:
1. The warm cozy smell of fresh brewed coffee when you first walk in the building.
2. Megan's bagels (nice and toasty), Megan's sandwiches (perfectly layered), Megan's soup (full of yummy ingredients), Megan's fulfillment of special requests (peanut butter toast and milk), and Megan's dry raised-eyebrow-response whenever Roy's being sassy.
4. Bouncing on the huge iron scale in the floor from when the building was an old warehouse
