#ElCafeDe2013 Coffee tip of the week: Choose Your Clothes Wisely…

It was a Saturday morning in Detroit and I decided to go out for a coffee. I put my G Adventures shirt on that I got at the TBEX travel conference and got in the car not knowing where I was going.

While driving I decided on Astro Coffee as I had not been there yet in this year of coffee. This was stop #77.

Once in the popular Corktown neighborhood establishment I ordered a Flat White. While waiting I captured some of the scene inside. Lots of pour over action and coffee cups just waiting to be drank out of.

The baristas were very personal and took their time to make a great individualized coffee. Perfect!

At that time a group of people came in and starting taking photos while ordering like me. I didn’t think anything of it until they started looking my way. Reading TBEX off one of my sleeves they came up to me and asked if I had attended the conference in Toronto. I said yes and that I was a travel blogger.

It turns out they were four travelers from Toronto in town for the weekend exploring Detroit. They invited me to sit with them, so we hung out and talked for a bit before they went onto more exploration in the D.

I’d like to think that I picked out the G Adventures shirt on purpose. 🙂 I did learn something today.

Tip #21: Choose your clothes wisely…

…when heading out for a cup of coffee. In all seriousness any shirt would have done, but because of what I put on I had the chance to meet and hangout with four fellow travelers for a while. Maybe there is something to that tip! Putting a cool travel company shirt on is a good idea. 🙂
