Summertime: when food just tastes better outdoors

Dining and drinking al fresco is one of the things I look forward to for the whole five months a year it’s too cold to do so. Eating outdoors is just magically conducive to slowing down and thoroughly enjoying your food and the company you’re sharing it with.

Foam to the Dome

Latte Art Throwdown

I can guarantee you that every barista who has ever served you a latte also has a screenplay or a band or an Etsy business on the side. They’re typically a creative bunch. Which is why it’s no surprise that an art form has sprung up around latte-making, and competitions have sprung up around that art form. This Saturday, Nov. 24, head to Prismatic Coffee to see competitors from all over the state serve up their prettiest latte foam creations at their third annual Latte Art Throwdown. Food is served at 6:30pm, and the competition goes from 7 to 9:30pm. This event is free and open to the public.
