Oh. My. Gawd.
I went. I saw. I was amazed. I think Bret knew what I was up to...
Ok, I actually got up in time! Yay. Me and my friend arrived there just before 8.30, and we could already hear them playing before we went inside. There was about 7 or 8 ukelele players and one double bass jamming along to Folsom Prison Blues. We managed to get a relatively good table, a good view of the band but the bassist had his back to us cause they were all sitting in a circle.
They played for about an hour, playing songs ranging from the Rolling Stones to Kiwi war songs. And the coffee was great.
The whole place had such a warm atmosphere, very welcoming. As regulars came and went, Bret and other band members waved to them, and the band chatted with the cafe patrons. Even I was smiled at. It felt as though I was intruding on a family gathering, it was all so friendly. But soon enough I felt very welcome, with the people at the table next to us smiling and boogie-ing along in their seats, asking us if we wanted to get down (by that I mean dance...).
After about an hour they stopped playing, a few musicians left, including Bret and the music stopped really. I had to leave cause I had a class, which I eventually missed, but that doesn't matter, this was far more important! The coffee was amazing. And I am SO there next Thursday.
I'll try and post some more photos up tonight, Kelle is going to resize them cause they're huuuuge, and hopefully that'll speed up the process of uploading them.
But for now, I'll post this little beauty. Taken this morning. Oh that's right, Breterosexuals. This. Morning.
Hey Deirdre, sorry hun, I didn't read your post until just now. Sorry sorry sorry! I think I know who you're talking about...is she the woman in the picture ^^?
