Cat Cafes Are Passé: An Owl Smoothie Bar is Opening in London

Cat Cafes Are Passé: An Owl Smoothie Bar is Opening in London


A smoothie bar that allows you to hang out with some new nocturnal friends is opening up soon in London

Are you excited for the opening of the owl bar? It’s sure to be a hoot.

Cat and puppy cafes are so 2014. A pop-up owl smoothie bar called Annie the Owl is opening soon in the SoHo neighborhood of London. Tickets for the opportunity to sip and bird watch are distributed through a lottery system, and 64,000 people have signed up already.

The owl bar will be open for just one week, from March 19th through the 25th, and tickets are £20 each ($30.50 USD). Annie the Owl initially offered two cocktails per owl enthusiast patron, but due to concerns from animal welfare groups, they decided to pass on the alcohol and offer up smoothies instead. All profits and proceeds will be going to an owl sanctuary.

If you are lucky enough to score a ticket, you’ll be able to choose the time and date of your arrival, and hang out with six owls, including Annie. You’ll also meet other barn owls, horned owls, screech owls, and a mystery winged guest who is a finalist in the World Owl Beauty Pageant, according to the Independent.

Donald Trump is a big fan of KFC

Where McDonald's leads, KFC shall follow — and nowhere is this truer than on the list of the president's favorite foods. In the considerably less heady days of mid-2016, Trump tweeted a photo of himself on his own private jet, chowing down on a veritable banquet of KFC (perhaps he'd enjoy this copycat KFC chicken recipe even more). A subsequent investigation by The Washington Post revealed a great deal about Trump's meal.

Namely, that his $20 Fill-Up bucket is supposed to feed a small group (although, to be fair, he may have shared after the photo was taken), that his use of a stainless steel knife, fork and spoon was a little odd considering his dinner. They also noted that his choice of reading material to go with the meal was The Wall Street Journal and a copy of a letter sent by senate democrats to President Obama urging the acceptance of more Syrian refugees into the United States. Nothing wrong staying informed while consuming your delicious fried chicken on-the-go.

Try wrapping your feet in aluminum foil!

We’re sure you’re familiar with aluminum foil. Many people use it in the kitchen, but not many would think of using it to wrap body parts with. It may sound like a strange idea, but it turns out that aluminum foil is a great product for your everyday ailments.

Benefits

Wrapping body parts in aluminum foil can bring many advantages and benefits. For instance, it is great for fatigue, it alleviates painful joints, it softens the pain from burns and it can even be used to help cure you of a cold.

Aluminium foil has an amazing amount of useful applications you might never have thought of before.

  • Need a funnel but don’t have one around the house? Not to worry by folding a bit of aluminium foil you can very easily make yourself a funnel that won’t leak. Ideal!
  • If you need to iron some clothes but don’t have enough time to do it, aluminium foil is the ideal solution. Fold an item of clothing around a piece of foil and then iron it. Because of the foil, the item of clothing will be ironed at both sides at the same time. You’ll be done much more quickly!
  • Blunt scissors? Not a problem. If you use aluminium foil the scissors will be nice and sharp before you know it. All you need to do is take a piece of foil and then cut it into tinier pieces. That’s all!
  • Static cling on clothes can be very frustrating. Luckily, there’s a quick and simple trick to fix this. All you need to do is scrunch up some foil into a ball and use it to rub the clothes with. The static cling will be gone.
  • Do you have a weak WiFi signal at your home? Make a screen out of aluminium foil and put it against a wall in the spot you want to increase the signal. The signal will be increased in the direction of the screen.

Back to the feet! On the next page you’ll read the instruction on how to use aluminium foil when you’re suffering from a cold or from fatigue.

80 Creative and Attention-grabbing Coffee Shop Name Ideas

A cool name for your coffee shop is important to attract a potential customer base. Creative coffee shop name ideas are plenty to come by, if they are well-thought out.

A cool name for your coffee shop is important to attract a potential customer base. Creative coffee shop name ideas are plenty to come by, if they are well-thought out.

Henning Mankell certainly got this right. Whatever would mortals do without coffee? A day without this beverage can wear us out. Haunting different coffee shops and experimenting with various brands has become the norm these days. Starting a coffee shop is a lucrative business if done right, and catchy and clever names are a must to attract the youngsters and oldies alike.

The entertainment factor is always a crowd puller. Try using some humorous elements like rhymes or puns. Some of these names could get rather cute for a neutral liking, so go easy on the same.

– Cute Cups
– Coffee under the table
– Expressive Espresso
– Coffee with Cartoons
– Kaffeinated Mugs
– Coffee with Peanuts

– The Bean Palace
– Kafe Koffee Meals
– Hugs with Mugs
– Kreative Kuppa
– Spiced Doze
– Beverage Klub
– Molten Cream Jars
– Milk’n Silk Candies
– Steaming Hotties
– Stylish Kafe

Well now, what’s more attractive in a name than practically flashing your menu card? Use the names of the different beverages, cakes, and other treats you are going to offer. This is a rather delicious idea, isn’t it?

– Fresh Creams
– Aromatic Drinks
– Cakes and Espresso
– Coffee Drips
– My Own Brew

– Mmm … Café au lait
– Milk & Cookies, anyone?
– Beans from Brazil
– Roasted Beans
– Cold Choco Cafe
– Special Mocha
– Caffè crema House
– Fresh Coffee Stop
– Brewed Mochas
– Hot Coffee Day
– Milky Pastries

A foreign tongue has more capacity to attract a crowd than using the local language. Of course, you need to make sure the language is used correctly and if you are using product names in the same, you need to offer them as well.

– Café aromático
– Café con crema
– El espresso salvaje
– Esquina capuchino
– Eduscho mit einem Twist
– Warme Getränke

– Reiz conversations
– Milchige Getränke
– Caffè e pizze
– Caffè con susan
– Caffè nella pioggia
– Pasticcini caldi
– L’ espresso géant
– Boissons chaudes
– Délicieux gâteaux
– Café, n’importe qui?

Adjectives always add that extra zing. So do themes. Use a variety and blend the names.

– Carbonated Fumes
– Central Conversations
– Round Table Coffee
– Black Sugars
– Effervescent Cups
– Heavenly Blends

– How about a frappe?
– Iced Treats
– The Young Mugs
– Warm Discussions
– Intoxicating Beverages
– No Sugar, less milk
– Vintage Coffee
– Senior Delights
– Coffee for Two
– Caffeine Hub

An age-old, yet common idea used even today. Use your name or your family name for the coffee shop. It might make some people feel more connected as well.

– Cathy’s Coffee Store
– Ann’s warm buns
– The Family Cafe
– Haley’s Steamin’ Mugs
– Danny’s Cakes
– Jake’s Aromatic Coffees
– My Own Cappuccinos
– Hot Jackson Express
– Grind Beans at Tanya’s
– Leticia’s Brazil Beans
– Blanca’s Café con leche

Points to Remember

  • The name should be simple enough, yet not overly generic such that clients are turned off.
  • Never, I mean never have a cuteness overload. You are naming a coffee shop, not a doll house.
  • You have to choose the right distributors for supplying the basic ingredients. This is very important when you are serving authentic beverages or treats of a different cuisine.
  • Your name can be based on the location, but check your competition first.
  • The name shouldn’t affect the branding.

While a ‘catchy’ name will help ‘catch’ clients (as the word literally implies), you have to diversify your offering. Your cafe is not going to function well solely on the selection of a good name. You need to have great products, good maintenance, good marketing, and good luck too, if I might add!
