Mothers Day 07

We celebrated Mother's Day at "Pink Pepper" in Hollywood for a wonderful Thai Dinner. The food was great, "angel wings" stuffed chicken, Fried Tofu, Crispy Duck, CRAB fried rice (the best), and spicy noodles filled our stomachs. We enjoyed a rare dinner together as a family and had some good laughs. We got my mom a colorful plastic bag she for some strange reason loves (this is her second), and a nice summer purse. Eton suprised us all and got her a pair of CHOCOLATE SHOES!!!

Looks like Linda?

Chocolate Shoes!!!??!?!

US Barista Championships 2007

My "little" brother is the "Chief Espresso Officer" for Groundwork Coffee, the famed Fair Trade LA coffee roaster. Eton trains all baristas for Groundwork to make sure they are top notch. Eton is competing in his first US Barista Championships this year at the Long Beach Convention Center. Here he is in action in the first round.... He has advanced to the Semi-Finals today with his "Miso Umami Espresso"! Sounds wierd, but it tastes i hear. Update on Semi-Finals result soon!
