A Fun and New Addition to La Bruja

new beer

We are NOW serving beer, wine, and sangria! YEAH!!!

This week’s beer is a seasonal variety made by Tecate —Mexicalibeer. That includes: an Amber Ale, Blonde Ale, Hefeweizen, Pale Ale, Porter, and IPA.

Prior to selling these beers, I had to do a little research and make sure that they work and were tasty enough. –I had a bit of fun that day 😉

And… in all honesty, I loved them all, but the Hefeweizen. –But… that may be because I’m not a big hefeweizen fan 🙁

We will also be caring little vicky’s (little Victoria’s) all the time at the shop.

The house wine we are caring this week is Sol de Chile. –The red is a blend of Cabernet and Syrah. The white is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.

I really quite liked and enjoyed tasting these two varieties!

The Sangria for the week, is gonna be a Black Mangoed Iced Tea Sangria. –Made with a white wine, and topped with apples and peaches.

So… if you are an alcohol-partaker, I recommend swinging by the shop and sharing a glass with me 😉

Season 3 Begins…

Outside Bruja season 3

With a NEW season, comes a new outlook on things. So…. I’ve changed things up at the shop.

For one, I’ve repainted the front a wee bit.

Two, changed out the outside seating, it’s a bit more comfy –all the more to sit a little longer and chill out.

Three, I have added a new refrigerator in front –that includes alcoholic beverages.

Four, I’ve added several new items to the menu -both for beverages and bites.

Five, artwork by other artists will move forward into the cafe area.

Six, –While in the back, is now reserved to be a Surf Shop. Which will include surfboard and stand-up paddleboard rentals. And… other surf accoutrements for sale.

And… lucky number seven, in time… I shall have shirts for sale.

Oh… and how can I forget, I also have some AMAZING double-wall ceramic To-Go mugs that have the La Bruja logo and includes a silicone lid ——-available at the shop FOR SALE.

Bruja mugs

Ok, I’ve put my time in for the day –it’s time for me to punch out. I’ve got work in the morning 😉

I Whooped Eva’s @$$

Scrabble Tiles

Not related to the coffee shop at all, nor to surfing, but… I just wanted to let everyone know that I whooped Eva’s @$$ at scrabble the other night.

I beat her with a seven-letter word (W-H-E-E-L-I-N-G). …And it happened to be placed on a triple word tile, giving me 48 points. …Plus I got an additional 50 points for using all of my seven tiles –BONUS!!!

HaHaHa Eva!!!

A day late, but…………………….Shanti

here is our NEW ARTIST at the shop.

Her name is Shanti Ragnoli.
She is originally from Brescia, Italy.

…But now currently resides most of the year in Albany, California.

–Where she is allowed most of her time to paint.

She does an amazing job with color combination, and really knows how to create texture.
