Capo Cougars

This week at Capo 20th Street there have been an alarming number of sighting of the Rittenhouse Cougar. At first, many baristi were alarmed, but have since become quite comfortable around these savage beasts. In order to properly identify the Rittenhouse Cougar, there are some key attributes to watch out for. The Rittenhouse Cougar generally appears to be around 35 years old, but could be considerably older due to the fact that it works out and does a lot of yoga. The Rittenhouse Cougar does not generally wear a wedding band, but undoubtedly has a string of ex-husbands whose whereabouts are still unknown.

The Rittenhouse Cougar's drink of choice is usually a skim cappuccino, or a bottle of Pellegrino with a wedge of lime. The Cougar generally prefers sorbetto over gelato due to the fact that it's fat free, but is known to be a sucker for dark chocolate. The Rittenhouse Cougar is known to make baristi (and managers) blush uncontrollably for hours on end, and continue to be the subject of conversation even after leaving the premises. The Cougars are genally good tippers and will offer to buy you a drink if you happen to run into them outside of work. Then you will most likely blush some more. And forget how to talk. And leave in a hurry. Not that this in any way actually happened in real life. Especially not on Tuesday night.
