MUG: Generic "gimmie-mug" made in The People's Republic of China.

COFFEE: A very drinkable dark roast, freshly brewed, and of decent strength.

NOTES: Breakfast at Maxine's on Main in downtown Bastrop, Texas. I had a good plate of migas, but they were out of their home-made salsa. Can a restaurant make "home-made" anything?

All of the coffee mugs in this quaint restaurant were garage-sale pick-ups and promo mugs. No two alike.

MUG: Czech hand-blown stemless Champagne flute from Crate & Barrel.

COFFEE: Nope. A Spanish Cava, Cristalino Brut. Nice on the palate and the wallet. A great party sparkler.

NOTE: Last night's New Year's Eve Toast. Notice the clock... Happy New Year, Prince Edward Island!
