Well, well, well: According to the counter guy at my video store, William Shatner
stoped into Ritual Roasters
on Valencia and 21st last night, fresh from his joint appearance with the still-hottt Sir Patrick Stewart
at San Francisco's Star Trek Convention
. He was not, apparently, escorted by men in Klingon prostheses. Boldly going where the great man went, I immediately walked to Ritual to engage the counter staff. No success ― the woman I talked to hadn't yet heard about the visitation from her coworkers, so no stories of Priceline deals or overeager fans. In honor of the visit, though, I ordered Kirk's reported drink, a double decaf macchiato. The captain has good taste ― the macchiato had just enough froth to knock out the
treble notes in the flavor and smooth over any bitterness, leaving only the deep, throbbing bass of the dark roast.
