So - has it closed? I walked past late last night and a lot of the lights were on, so if they have closed they're clearly not too worried about the lecky bill.

Just went in on my way back from some errands (and to use up a completed "frequent coffee" card I had). Prince on the sound system, a couple of customers on computers, and a couple of clerks. I mentioned how nice it was to see them open again, ordered and handed in my card, and left a tip. While waiting for my coffee, I noticed a chalkboard sign saying "Americans now welcome X X". Hmm.

After I received my coffee, I asked the clerks "What does that sign mean?" They both stared at it for a minute, then said "Oh, it's just a joke. Because of the election." I said "So Americans are only welcome here depending on who the President is?" Silence. "Because I'm not aware of any Brits not being served in the US because of Gordon Brown." Silence. "I find it really offensive." "It's meant to be a joke." "Well, I find it really offensive." Silence. "But I guess my opinion doesn't matter, since I'm just a customer." Silence. I left.

Yeah, I know, typical American with no sense of humor, and I admit I find this particular joke very unfunny. But come on, the election was in early November. Give it a rest.

I'm glad [email protected] st is back - I prefer to walk down to sobo for my latte and light quota but it fills a slot and its good to support small businesses. I was nosing along Whitecross St, nr Barbican, last week and was surprised to find another [email protected] - but as that was also closed; I did begin to think 2 + 2 = 5 so glad they are back. Is Post/Toast still closed?

Laphroaig - hee hee
they had that sign up in November and my dad noticed it and took similar offence.

mind you my mum told to him to give it a rest, the amount of damage that america has caused in the last few decades, they can take a wee dig in the ribs from a coffee shop on a back street in london!

laugh and rise above it my american friend!

Purile ignorant humour. About as witty as Jim Davidson.
