Flo Espresso's 2nd Birthday
What better way to spend a Monday than celebrating the 2nd birthday of the beautiful Flo Espresso cafe and raising money for breast cancer. While you’ll be drinking delicious coffee for a good cause, the staff will be closing early to host a public Latte Art Smackdown. You don’t need any barista skills, but if you want to stand a chance winning the competition you should put on your best pink outfit or costume and get over there from 4:30pm.
