Dear Kid,

Tickets are available for the Cincinnati Coffee Festival and they’re selling like hotcakes.

This, of course, raises the question: Exactly how quickly do hotcakes sell? The blindingly obvious answer is: Very.

Apparently—either in reality or in someone’s fertile imagination—hotcakes were crazy popular at fairs and festivals. I’m guessing there wasn’t a lot going on at the fairs and festivals of the nineteenth century.

NYCoffee Festival Bag DearKidLoveMom.comWe had coffee, cascara (you remember what that is, right?), tea, turmeric tea latte, cookies, more coffee, chocolate, donuts, even more coffee, and a whole lot of other yum. Which is pretty much what people will find at the Cincinnati Coffee Festival. I can’t be sure about the turmeric lattes. We’ll also have live music, demos, and a latte art throwdown.

I’m reasonably sure there won’t be any hotcakes.

Love, Mom
