Closing the first weeks of 2010

Stumpjack will be closing for the months of January and February. After three years of 70- to 90-hour workweeks, with a few days off here and there, we've decided to take an extended time to regroup and recharge, during the slowest time of the year.
We may open the shop once in a while, most likely on a weekend morning if we do. How will you know when we open on those odd days, if we do? The answer is: pay attention to Facebook, because if we do decide to open any particular day we'll likely announce it on there. If you are one of the few folks in the world who doesn't have a Facebook account, get one. It's super easy to set one up and it's fun. You can connect to Stumpjack Facebook via this address: or do a Facebook search for Stumpjack Coffee. Just add us as a "friend" and you should receive any of our posts and updates.

Day 3 of the Stumpjack 12 Days of Christmas

Thinking of something a little different for this Day of Christmas special. Tonight we have live music with the kind-hearted Becky Markvart and guitar-man Kent Aubry. So, today's, or rather tonight's special is...your first beer and coffee drink is on us. That's right, a free beer AND a free coffee drink! from 6:30-9:00 tonight.
Becky and Kent perform at 7pm tonight.
The caveat to that is that I get to choose your beer (you can pick your own latté or cappuccino). So, if I know you and like you, you may get one thing, if I know you and don't like you...well, we do have some skunky beer we need to clear out...

The Day 2 special for the 12 Days of Christmas are these little gift baskets that we made for St. Nick's Day earlier this week.

Facebook diary of a pumpkin killing

Headline: Stumpjack doorway pumpkin meets a violent end. Early this morning the brutalized body of the Stumpjack pumpkin was found on Washington Street in Two Rivers, mere feet from his usual resting spot in the doorway of the shop. The evidence at the crime scene suggests a pumpkin homicide. Police state that any tips that lead to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator will be eligible for a latté reward.

I like it when conversations grow legs and wander off into fun directions.
