Let me tell you about a magical place. This place won’t be found in a C.S. Lewis novel, but it will be found in a small storefront in the Castro. It is a place where rainbows can be seen daily, unicorns are talked about quite seriously, and your companion to the restroom is an elephant. Kikis are had not once, but many times throughout the day and most of all, a smile is freely given to anyone who enters these doors.
Enter Anthony Mercurio. (Wieners)
This young man has been a bright spot in my caffeinated days for the last couple years. Not only does this man have the uncanny ability to know exactly what I want before I utter any words, but he does it with more heart than anyone I’ve ever met.
Weiners is leaving this magical land of caffeine, unicorns, and rainbows. While I’m mortified at the thought of this mighty man leaving my routine, I’m proud of his courage to take the next step in his life.Wieners, Thank you for huge heart. I could feel said heart the second I walked in through those doors. Not only do you support my caffeine addiction, but you support me in my life as well. You are the definition of a confidant, and with much humility offer advice when I desperately need to hear it. Thank you for continuing to support myself and all the patrons of Philz with your love, all while being the most fabulous one can possibly conceive of being. Your fabulousness will be missed around these parts, but how selfish would it be for us to keep you all bottled up to ourselves? Go forth and spread your fairy dust to all those fortunate enough to cross your path. WERQ! You are more to me than a barista; you are my friend. Love, Bumblebee
