We temporarily interrupt the DC Affogato Olympiad for two brief messages:
DC area people, if you love coffee and are free Saturday afternoon, pop on over to Northside Social in Arlington for their first class on making better coffee at home, led by Sharon Kriz, their Coffee Director. Sharon is just delightful, has done a lot of work with Counter Culture, and her enthusiasm for coffee is contagious. Requires advance registration.

*I don’t actually have such a list
