The Daughter and I headed over one day to try out Porcellino's, a new coffee shop. There were tables and counter seating. We sat on comfortable stools at a counter at a window. They were offering Nitro Coffee, which is reportedly the latest thing in coffee brewing.
I didn't care for it. It's a cold brew infused with liquid nitrogen, but it also tasted of some kind of spice. I didn't care for the flavoring, and I guess I just prefer my coffee hot. The next time I go I'll try their espresso.
They have a limited food menu that looks very tasty, and I'll eat something next time. I will definitely go back. I want to go back when it's warm and I can sit out on their patio. At the other end of the cafe there's a craft butcher, but I buy cheaper meat. It looked very tempting, though....
The Memphis Business Journal has an article. The Memphis Daily News reports co-owner Michael Hudman saying that he would "envision someone like Tony Soprano enjoying a cup of coffee or an espresso" in this new place. Choose 901 has photos.
This outing was a couple of weeks ago. Right now we have sleet on the ground and highs in the 20sF. The low tomorrow night is predicted at 2F. Yes, that's a 2! This is what my patio looked like early yesterday morning:
All the schools and many of the businesses were closed yesterday and are closed again today. It may not seem like much to y'all, but here in Memphis if frozen precipitation is predicted everybody panics and nobody knows how to drive. It's a mess on the roads, and I'll be staying inside with my coffee. Brrrr!

We had a bit of snow overnight, so now there's a solid sheet of ice overlaid by a pretty half-inch or so of pretty snow. Schools and universities are closed again today:
