Previous episodes have taught us that Blue Roo happens to be quite fond of ALL farm animals, including horses. So, what better way for Blue to spend his Tuesday than sipping coffee, snacking on pastries and visiting all three of the BlackHorse locations in San Luis Obispo? And what a day it was! Blue was treated like a king and got to enjoy the afternoon with his partners in crime, Jeff Buckingham and Jami Fawcett. The first trip was across town to the BlackHorse on Foothill Boulevard. Blue made sure to save some time by calling in his coffee order, allowing for an easy and convenient pick up at the coffee shop’s walk-up window! His royal treatment continued as he met with Rachel, the store manager, and enjoyed his favorite treat, the delicious carrot cupcake (he really can’t get enough of those carrots!). After saying his goodbyes, he made his way to the BlackHorse on Higuera. The shop downtown, known for its outstanding outdoor patio and friendly customer service, most intrigued Blue as he learned all of the baked goods are actually made at the local, off-site BlackHorse bakery! After discovering this, he made sure to try the vegan pumpkin chocolate chip cupcake, topping it off with a velvety foam latte, and his ultimate favorite refreshment: pomegranate green tea…boy can that rooster eat! All of the homemade Blackhorse bakery goods can be called in for pick up or arranged to be catered for your next business luncheon, soirée, or ho-down!
Last, but not least, Blue made his entrance at the BlackHorse on Broad. After such a fun filled and snack-tastic day, Blue really needed to get some work done so he fired up his computer using the fastest Internet in town! Thanks to Digital West at BlackHorse on Broad, Blue was able to respond to numerous fan e-mails, update his Love On The Farm online dating profile, and download some Chicken Little movie clips in no time! While surfing the web, Blue enjoyed a spinach feta croissant and the lovely company of many BlackHorse patrons.
The day would not be complete without opinions from Blue: he was highly satisfied in his service, snacks, and celebrity treatment. However, he noticed that Blackhorse provides dog treats for purchase by the numerous SLO canine owners and lovers, and was a little perturbed that they did not carry any chicken feed! He has already sent in a suggestion to the owners, so do not worry his concern will be taken care of soon! Blue said his goodbyes to Jeff and Jami, and spent the night in his coop, slipping in and out of a food coma.
