Caribou Coffee's 15th Anniversary — The Bou Bash

Caribou Coffee’s 15th Anniversary — The Bou Bash

Caribou Coffee is 15 years old today! I crawled out before dawn and ventured out into the zero-degree weather and made my way over to the very first Caribou at 44th & France Avenue for my morning fix. Carmen (on the left) is a barista at my regular Caribou where I write most of the time. She told me yesterday about the event and I had to check it out. They were giving away free Timberwolves tickets to the first 100 customers. There will be events there all day; the mayor will be there, balloons for the kids, and from 2:00 – 4:00 you can get 15% off all drinks, just mention that it’s their anniversary.

I got there in time to take a picture of the whole gang with the banner before the morning rush.

    That’s pretty cool Mitch! That’s a fun thing to celebrate. Congrats on your tickets too! There’s something about early winter mornings and a cup of coffee that just make the everything feel just the way it should be. Stay warm!

    Mitch – looks like you are an old and welcome customer there. The place looks like a good antidote to Minnesota winters. My professional life doesn’t leave me much time for hanging out in coffee shops or much of anything else.

    Excellent job on these pictures. I’m impressed by the perfect white balance. Did you have to work with a combination of tungsten and fluorescent lights? Looks like you just used available light.
