FIKA on the corner!
So what am I doing outside in the hot sun? No, I'm not busking for customers. What happened was I walked in and attempted to go into the cool, heaven 'scent' atmosphere of FIKA when I was very nicely told that I was not allowed. I was a bit miffed but when a manager came out later to take my photo for Instagram, I felt a little better. My feelings weren't quite as bruised but they would have felt better with something edible.
My mom got food though and a latte that she was very happy with. She was all smiles so I know it was top notch. So it looks like in addition to organizing a dog parade for national dog day, I am going to have to work on allowing pets into eating establishments. We are just like people, some have lovely manners and know how to behave in nice eateries, others do not. I do not think I should be penalized for the acts of others. Lets evolve with the times. Everyone deserves respect and maybe a truffle or two.
