|According to Rachel there's still some work to be done to make the space feel even better. Built in seating, the good old stained glass, etc. I love the new spot.|

|St. Helens is actually in pretty good shape now. Broadway is not.
Looking forward to the improvements in the new Blackwater space. And thank god those "improvements" will never include bikini baristas -- they're fall too cool for that kind of schlock.

|I imagine they'd be more along the lines of Suicide Girls anyway. ;) Joking aside, I can't wait to check out their new space once I'm back in town.
In the meantime, good luck and many happy pours to them!
