How did you celebrate National Coffee Day?
It’s no secret that Justine, Maeven, and I LOOOVE our food. And that includes our coffee!! Of course, we here at Eat Play Chicago LA will not let this day go by without sharing with you guys how we celebrated this awesome holiday.
Justine’s cup of joe:
Justine went to Krispy Kreme with the two kiddos for coffee and donuts. Coffee is life and everything, but just look at how yummy those Halloween donuts look!
Maeven’s cup of joe:
Look at how beautiful Maeven’s Cafe Latte is from La Colombe in Andersonville, Chicago.
Jaja’s cup of joe:
As for me, I spent the afternoon at my makeshift “blogger’s office” at Starbucks to enjoy my venti Iced coffee paired with vanilla bean scones.
How did you spend National Coffee day, our fellow coffee enthusiasts? Let us know! Have a nice day and enjoy that cup everyone! As a small reminder, make sure to carry with you a reusable cup to help the environment a little, not just to day but as often as you can remember.
Every Sunday, we want to share with our blog community the photos that made the cut on our Instagram feed. You can also follow us at @eatplaychicagola.
