But either way, we could use more posts here. ;) I still go to Empire on Fridays, along with a lot of the "crew" I know there. I've branched out and now sometimes I'll have a coffee or Red Bull along with a mango lassi... not at the same time, of course. What are y'all enjoying there this summer? They do have incredibly good cookies and their wraps are delicious. I love the garlic herb chicken wraps. Maybe I'll have one tonight!
I still haven't been brave enough to try the bubble tea, but some folks really like it. I might have to try a 'dirty chai' sometime though, if only because of its name... *grin*
Talk to me/each other, Empire folks! It's the summer! There's gotta be something going on at Empire, right?
The title for my userpic is "My cards are bigger than yours, making me the winner."
Did everyone get their Empire Open Mic DVD? It's a bargain at $3.00, the money goes to the food bank, and it's a lot of fun. See some of the coolest spoken word in Newport County, on your computer or your DVD player - great stuff.
And everyone needs to have a mango lassi before it gets real cold. Last time I was at Empire I surprised myself by having a lassi and then later having a hot chocolate (I liked the lassi better, but the hot chocolate is good). Well, I'd come in after a break, and it was cold outside!
Nothing like the warm atmosphere of Empire on a cold day.
I'm at Empire most Friday evenings, as y'all might know - but I'm thinking of trying to get an LJ meetup there - maybe I'll mention it to CJ next time I see him. Just a one-off thing, or one day a month where all us LJ fans of Empire could go to hang out - as if we don't already, but, y'know. Any excuse for me to go to Empire will do. :)
Hope everyone's doing well!
As an employee at Empire, I've had a great experience working there. I've met many awesome people and made many fond memories. I'll surely miss working there as it's been the best job I've had to date. CJ and Marjorie were great bosses and I wish them all the luck with Empire's future prospects. I'll continue to do some work for CJ while in school in Boston and I'll definitely come down to visit as often as I can.
It's been fun! If I don't see you before I leave, I'll see you all later!
PS: Look out for me and Kristine's gallery coming in a few months! :D
So today I went to Empire to grab a bite since I heard there were salads! I picked up the Thai Peanut Pasta Salad = $3.00, it was so good! I got really full off of it which is weird...I eat a lot. I'm excited to see if any other new foods will appear.
Also, does anyone have any recommendations on a drink? ((I usually have bubble tea, italian soda or an iced tea...))
