Happy Fri-yay! I wish I can partake in the Fri-yay/TGIF merriment with the rest of you in the normal (whatever that is) work-world. I'm so jelly. I still have three more days to go until my long-awaited weekend starts.So it's more like a hump day for me. For the sake of Fri-yay spirit, I thought I'd brighten the mood by posting about my recent experience at a pooch cafe.
PUPPIES AND COFFEE. ENOUGH SAID. If those two things don't put a smile on your face, then I don't know how we can be friends. Just kidding (sort of).
I love puppies. I love coffee. Combine those two together and I am in caffeinated puppy-luvin’ heaven. I’ve heard about the popularity of pet cafes in S. Korea some time ago. So when I heard about the concept materializing here in the States, I was stoked. I had The Dog Café bookmarked for months. I finally got a chance to stop by yesterday.
A coworker and I were both called off, so we decided to take a trip to visit some pups! I left my home around 3-ish and didn’t arrive until past four. I was able to do a walk-in. The time was 4:15. The gentleman at the front asked if we wanted to wait until five to get the full hour or if we wanted to go in now and join the 4o’clock session, but miss out on the 15 minutes. I was not going to wait 45 minutes. I hate waiting. I didn’t mind too much about the minutes that we missed. I guess the part we missed was the “introduction” time. So we missed the part where each pup was introduced, but we got caught up later. The fee for puppy time is $10pp and they check your id, get your signature, all that good stuff. I ordered myself an iced latte, another $4.36. From the posts I was reading in the past, I understand that the $10 fee included a free drink. But I guess things have changed. Or only certain drinks are free. No idea. I saw many previous posts/reviews stating how the $10 included a free drink So I was kind of surprised when he gave me the extra amount for what I thought was already included in the $10 tag.
