Yep, coffee.

As many of you are caffeine addicts like myself I undertook a public service last night to check out the opening times of a number of near by cafes.

I am happy to report that there are three nearby establishments that will be serving coffee before round 1.

They are:

L'affare - College Street - Open saturday from 8am
Brooklyn Bakery - Don't let the name fool you, also on College St - Open from 8:30am
Mt Cook Cafe - The closest cafe to Wellington High, just down the road a bit - Open from 8:30am

So worry not! Caffeine is at hand, and I assume that cans of sugery caffeinated beverages will also be for sale.

These posts are getting earlier and earlier.

Are we going to see a "364" post the day after Kapcon? Very Happy

I suspect that it'll go the other way and we'll be into "23.5 hours to KapCon, YAY!" swiftly followed by "23.25 hours to KapCon YAYAY" Very Happy

Nope, once Friday hits that'll be it. I will have done my part for hype. So don't go turning up here on Saturday morning expecting a '0' post. No siree bob, I've got to get up early enough as it is!

Do we usually sell bottled water and suger free red bull as well - for those of us who have just jumped on the scales for the first time after the Xmas gorging period...??

Not nice coffee, or not actually coffee (like, say, instant)?

Not that it matters much, I usually bring my own. Smile

Honestly, the plunger and urns were pretty awful too.
