Right, so I just received the following e-mail from Perky Cups, which, as you can gather from the note, is apparently a java joint -- maybe -- that employs bikini-clad females.
Hello. We are Perky Cups. Denver/Auroras first Bikini Model Baristas coffee shop. We are having a grand opening Friday November 20th and Saturday November 21st, 2009.
We are located at 12101 E. Iliff Ave. Unit A Aurora, CO 80014, where the old Peaberry's use to be. We are open from 6am to 7pm M-F. Please come by and see us and have a Mocha on us!
Thank you, Perky Cups!
I can only conclude that the discriminating folks at Perky Cups assumed I had the perky goods to pour a decent mocha; otherwise, the subject header of said e-mail -- ** Bikini Barista** TONS of TIP$ ** (Aurora) -- was nothing more than a cruel joke.
Happy Friday, kids.
