Chilly morning; Winter has arrived

Went to the gym at 7:30 this morning and was pleasantly surprised by the chilly weather, winter has finally arrived in time for the holidays.

24 Hour Fitness has a lot of new equipment. I've been traveling lately so didn't see the new stuff until today. It's really nice, a great enhancement to the gym and I hear that a lot more changes are on the horizon.

I see that Masa, the new taco place is getting ready to open, hopefully by the end of next week, they tell me. City permits are the holdup, which is always the case. 


The chilly weather has brought out a lot of runners, they were all over the place this morning. Many congregated at the Starbucks at Monty's. The crew at Starbucks at CocoWalk were challenged by my order this morning, there is something I order that they have a name for, but the crew this morning didn't know what it was, the coffee was great anyway, but it wasn't my thing, which is a double espresso with a little hot milk. Whenever I have ordered it in the past, they have said, "Oh you mean such and such." And they are right, but I can never remember the name though. It's sort of a double macchiato with a little hot milk instead of the foam.

The Breakfast Club regulars were in full force this morning at The Bookstore, too. People are getting ready to head out for the holidays to be with family and friends, they were talking about their plans. I got my grilled veggie wrap for breakfast and after a long wait, called out my usual, "What's taking so long, are they out killing the asparagus?"

Off to finish Christmas shopping, see you around the village.

The food at the bookstore is good enough to make you forgive them every single time for the ridiculous wait time.

24 Hour has lost a lot of members to YouFit. They have very old equipment and need to get more in line with the suburban 24 Hour locations. The only advantage they have over YouFit is the classes they offer, but at 3x the price they need to have a nice club, not the smallest with the oldest equiment. Those left as members should reap the benefits of competition.
