has nothing whatsoever to do with 'crawling'
if anything, by the end of a tour, it's more like running
or perhaps 'skin crawling' - if you've not hydrated enough
I know I drank at least 4 bottles of water from 10 to 2 Sat
in looking up what a 'crawl' is you at first of course go for the Pub Crawl
which has been called in the past the "bohemian death march"
I've never heard this, but now will hold this one dear
and have to ponder how to relate to the opposite for a Caffeine Crawl
"bohemian life blood" maybe

Houston Press - Blog - Caffeine Crawl Makes a Splash article...

Lukas - barista/artist of coffee & those bags...
winner of that Cicada art coffee bag!!
*note: am probably one of the few or maybe ever to have said I love those bugs! (Cicadas)
really that sound is like no other, in the trees, in the South--for me it's like a home becon...
or a bedtime lullaby...I've grown up with it, in FL then when moved to LA & again in TX...
not to mention the surprise on a trip to Paris that they're made into ceramics which are hung by the front door of many a French cottage for Good Luck I believe...Ode to the Cicada coming up next...lol... ;o))
Here read some history - 15 Fun Facts - about the Cicada or Cigale in Provence France...
note: listen to the video for just 23 secs of the critter noise...now imagine if you will an entire tree full of them or an entire street lined with trees of them or an entire town dotted with trees & streets lined with trees full of them...Oh my the noise...what a insect symphony or would that be a cacophony concert?!

note: I think these ceramic cicadas look very traditional or antique
I'd imagine these would be in the kind found on front entrances of homes in the South of France
trying it out at home
Vietnamese Coffee in a bottle, all ready to go

note: were on Caffeine Crawl - Tour One, but GPS snafu & showed up late...
no photo--but the Yogurt Coffee was so delish, I would of never thought of it...
so sorry I didn't take a quick pic, it was surprisingly yummy & told them so...
could wish they'd sell that in the coffeeshop--guess they have the yogurt & the cold coffee, but not the two together for sale...we were lucky on the Caffeien Crawl to get a taste, special!
here it is--Coffee Yogurt
or Yogurt Coffee

note: met a lady on the tour with their t-shirt on
she was in the back of the roaster room in Boomtown
thanked her I think or I hope--they were using her/their beans
