The Beachcomber Cafe is a special place and you can tell just by looking at the outside.
The wonderful young women who own the Cafe (and its younger sister, Beachcomber 2, in Bayside) decided in early 2008 to forgo paper cups. Customers who cannot, or prefer not to, sit down to enjoy their drink on the premises bring their own mug or purchase a mason jar (which is, of course, totally reusable). The system works beautifully.
Black and White Wednesday is on hold while Susan takes some time off to focus on her health. I had prepared this post for week #28 of the event. Following on the footsteps of Brii and Haalo, who last week published a photo for Susan (here and here), I am publishing this post as a special card for Susan.
The photo was shot in color and then I played a bit with the black and white setting in Photoshop to get the two light sepia photos.
while Susan is not able to host BWW we thought it would be nice to have a place where we can collect BWW culinary pics for her when she comes back. Here is a Flickr group if you want to join: http://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected]/
Details are on my post too: http://foodblog.paulchens.org/?p=5652
thanks for listening and I hope if you like to idea for Susan too you'll help spread the word!

Thanks for the info regarding the flickr group. I joined and will mention it this week when I post another photo for Susan.
Thanks, Jann. They phased in the initiative, and people accepted it. It's great.
I agree, Ivy. Thanks!
