Bits of this & that:
• The Wolverines had a good weekend, as they improved their season record to 4-0 with a 32-0 win over LaConner in Friday night’s football game at their place. The soccer girls dropped a 3-0 decision with a talented Bear Creek squad on a sunny Saturday, but looked good, even in defeat, both with their passing, chances to score, and grit as they kept at it for the whole game. They next play on Thursday…
• The inside scoop about Pat O’Day’s successful brain surgery….he’s told me how happy he is with how it turned out, and this sums it up nicely.
• Set up in the old Friday Harbor Realty/Crystal Seas Kayaking spot, next to Herb’s, there’s a new coffee place in town – here’s the word from Jon & the crew about The Crow’s Nest:
There is a new coffee shop in town! Crow’s Nest Coffee Shoppe opened on June 29th at 70 Spring Street, between Herb’s Tavern and Windermere Real Estate and across from the China Pearl.
The owners and professionally-trained barisatas, Jon & Mary Hurley and Ashley Buccanan, live and breathe coffee. With a combined 22 years of coffee experience and five and six generations of family on the island, they are no strangers to Friday Harbor.
Crow’s Nest will be offering award-winning Café Vivace espresso drinks. Some consider Café Vivace one of the best espresso blends in the world. They also serve an array of housemade syrups exclusive to the Crow’s Nest. The food menu will impress foodies everywhere with its wide variety of choices, from breakfast sandwiches and wraps to lunchtime artisan sandwiches, hot dogs and burgers, all featuring island-grown or island-made ingredients.
Crow’s Nest keeps up with technology. They offer a curbside delivery service with all the convenience of a drive-thru without the line of idling cars. They blend the nostalgia of an old-fashioned diner with the convenience of being able to phone or text in your order from your car. Kids, come on in and be part of the Little Crow Club for discounts at lunchtime and after school. Adults, become a punchcard holder and receive local discounts menu-wide.
