Yesterday, I wrote about six-gun wielding baristas dishing out shots of espresso along with some good ol' western, frontier style justice... some hot coffee or some hot lead!
As I was writing the post, it occurred to me that this is only the latest story in the bizarre Spokane coffee scene.
It started several months ago with another local coffee stand in Spokane. They started getting a lot of press because certain groups in town were up in arms (no reference to the guns blazing out the drive thru window of Jitterz Java) over the baristas wearing nothing but bikinis.
Once the bad press started heating up, the baristas upped the ante by changing their atire to lingerie instead og bikinis (well played ladies, that should quell the resistance).
Imagine my surprise when the people protesting the indecency of bikini clad women serving coffee did not go quietly into that good night... No the resistance only heated up.
How did the brilliant minds at the coffee shop respond, you ask? Well obviously they decided to go topless on Tuesdays and Thursdays....
How did this all play out, you want to know?
Who knows, the next thing to hit the news trumped this story.
What could possibly be more entertaining and news worthy than topless women just trying to earn an honest buck serving crappy coffee to men and high school boys who don't even like that taste of coffee but are committed to supporting the cause of these poor downtrodden and persecuted baristas?
Well a bat-shit crazy lady committing a hate-crime against herself knocks that right off the front page.
Enter Diana Na of Coffee Break into the mix.
So it seemed that Diana Na had been a victim of a bit of a mistaken identity hate-crime. You see Diana is Korean, and these intolerant bigots painted "Go Back To China" in the parking lot where the coffee stand is located and then tried to burn the coffee stand down.
Really?!?! In this day and age?!?!? Can't we all just get along in this big melting pot of a country we live in?!?!?!
Who would do such a thing? Just goes to show how ignorant and stupid bigots and racists truly are. I mean she isn't even Chinese, she is Korean, and even I (having been educated in American public schools) knows there is a clear difference.
I hope they find out who committed this heinous act of hatred....
I'm sorry.... What's that?
Who was it?
You're f#$&ink kidding me!
It was Diana Na?
How are we going to top that? What could possibly knock that story off the front page?
Baristas giving themselves a license to kill, strapping Colt 45s to their hips and engaging in Mexican standoffs with customers who don't tip well enough...
Welcome to Spokane, Near Nature, Near Perfect and bat shit crazy!
Now I need a cup of coffee!
