DC: Peregrine Prevails After Sandy’s Surge, Huge Lines
The Metro may be closed in DC, but that’s not stopping droves of java seekers from finding their buzz at Peregrine Espresso. According to Peregrine’s Twitter feed, both MidCity and Eastern Market locations will stay open until 9PM tonight. Petula Dvorak of the Washington Post reports:
Baristas carpooled, bicycled and walked to work to help caffeinate the masses.
“A lot of our employees live nearby, so they could walk,” said Randy Kindle, as the wind howled outside and he poured another espresso.
Peregrine had a little fun at Dvorak’s expense, quoting a real humdinger of a line on Twitter:
My country tis of thee, sweet land of coffee, for thee I brew.
