B Spinner

And it is from Biggby!
They sent me a cool spinner. Maybe I can do mind tricks on people who haven't tried Biggby Coffee yet and get them to try it......

Staying here!

So, the Naner Lady finally chose a name for her soon to be Etsy store, and it is NOT Occams Scissors. Why is that important to me you ask? Well, that means I don't have to give up the blog I hi-jacked from her. You are stuck with me! I do need to get George and Gund to join me here though... hmmm, maybe a nice family photo. We have been playing NCIS a lot lately so maybe Naner Lady can take a picture of us.

Changing blog location

So the Naner Lady might steal her blog back from me!
If she does then I will have to move over to their A2 blog:

She has been working on her art stuff and is now thinking she is fancy. She makes extra naner money sometimes with her stuff and now is looking at selling some of her things online. Here is the things she likes to make:
The Hand won't let her make stuff for us, she did make us scarfs for the winter though. Must keep the plush warm.

Preparing for the interview questions

We are going to see Biggby Bob tomorrow at the "Spot Bob" Event. He is the CEO and co-founder of Biggby Coffee. His blog is linked to the side over there. ------>

Bob likes to ask people a few of the same questions so I am preparing my answers, so here goes:

Bob: What is your name? ** Nigel: Nigel T. Monkey

Bob: What is your shoe size? ** Nigel: Your concerned about my shoe size when I am not wearing any pants? Well, if you really must know it is one-tenth

Bob: If there is one thing about Biggby you would change, what is it? ** Nigel: to finally get the "official" button I have been asking for. I have a bouncy ball, I have a Kazoo, Naner Lady made this button, but on want one from you. Oi, that was almost poetry.

See you in the morning Bob =)

Knight's Restaurant

This is my second time to this restaurant, and the service was much better this time. If you like meat this is a good place to eat, they get all their meat from Knight's Market were they have a big meat shop.
The area inside is a bit outdated and dark, but they had Oberon on tap and an American style menu for a good dining experience.

Winter is Over !!

It was 70' (F) today and upon going to Biggby for Dessert today I saw this:

B Timeless ?

I don't want winter to be here forever. It was cold, snowy and long this year. I want to spend time enjoying good summer weather.

Message to Corporate: Please send new banners.

Cafe Felix

Starting our spring with a meal at Cafe Felix because it is 70' (F) out and we can sit outside and watch people.
Fortunatly we had our pints of Oberon at hand since the service and food quality has gone down since our last visit.
Things to note:
1) Male waitstaff just is not as good as the female, nothing new about that here, same as before. The guys just don't take the time to "mingle", this is Ann Arbor after all.
2) First strange thing to note was that the tables were quite full and the kitchen has not started serving dinner until 5:00pm in the past. They were already well into dinner service at 4:55pm today.
3) The menu was longer then before (I can live with that)
4) The menu was printed on cardstock paper and hand cut in stead of using a paper trimmer for a clean edge, sloppy
5) The quality and size of dishes have changed: (a) Salmon dish is no longer with Norwegien Salmon, big differance in taste and texture, sause had more citrus then before, no longer melts in your mouth. (b) stuffed chicken was half the size as last year but the same price, the sauce had flavor but since the chicken lacked flavor the dish over all was a balance of blah.
6) The waiter never asked if we wanted dessert!!! Not that we were going to order any, we planed to skip it to go to Biggby, but he didn't know that.
Current rating is Nubs down

Confirmation today, I'm Famous !!!

Everybody loves Me!
After Dinner, Bangers and Mash with a Pint down at Grizzly Peak, we stopped by Biggby on Liberty for a dessert cuppa. Chris is the nice chap that took our order and he knew me right away, great customer connection. Jason came out while the drinks were in the works and was excited to see me, he knew me as well of course. I love this place. A few customers came in while I was waiting for our drinks and they got a photo taken with me too. It is great to be famous. People are great, and Biggby is a great place for coffee and meeting people. I also got the Naner Lady to get me a cool retro candy bar.

B Livonia

Went for a visit to the Livonia Michigan Store on Plymouth Road on Wednesday. Naner Lady was going to hang out with her art friends but I made her stop by along the way. Oi! I just realized we forgot to leave them one or three of my brillent moo cards, guess we have to go again...

February Biggby Tour

We went for a mini vacation over the weekend and did a bit of a Biggby tour along the way.
A list of our stops:
#1 - Ann Arbor Washtenaw store
#2 - Jackson
#3 - Marshall
#4 - Kalamazoo Main street
In Jackson they had a guest book so I signed in (that's were this picture was taken)
In Kalamazoo barista Kelsey knew who I was, see I told you I was famous.
I'm still waiting for Corporate to make proper B buttons, not that the handmade one by the Naner Lady is bad but a "real" button would be great. I saw some great looking sweatshirts at the Jackson store that would be wonderful if they came in my size. Oi! I just remembered there was a bear at the Marshall store that I think was wearing a sweatshirt hoodie, I should have asked him about buying it off him......

Hidden Moo card

I left a moo card on the picture at our booth in Casey's.
I wonder how long it will take someone to find, they must have a sharp eye.
