Meet Richie, Boulder Creek's manager. He grew up on the mean streets of Indianapolis, is a Virgo, and is very kind to his mother. Many have described Richie as the Shane Battier of baristas. His favorite shirt has a tag that itches the back of his neck. His life goals include visiting all all seven continents and all the states in America except North Dakota. It is very important to him that all people respect the “no cuts, no butts, no coconuts” rule and alphabetize their home DVD collections. Also, for a very short time, Richie was the personal adviser to Paul Reiser.
Katie is calm, cool, and collected behind the bar, but when she's on the curling sheet, she's as feisty and competitive as any skipper you'll ever come across. She spent a little time as a semi-professional wedding crasher, but she moved on after being disillusioned by the industry. Her annual fall internship with the real-life Indiana Jones has greatly developed her interpersonal communication skills. Also, she's a pathological liar.
Garrett is the perfect amalgamation of wisdom and whimsy. He is a poet; the truest product of deep contemplation and retrospect. Don't let his snap-back-wearing, backpack-yielding countenance fool you, he is probably considering the plight of humanity or mentally writing a sonnet whilst taking your order. That casual “yeah bro”, coupled with a gentle head nod really means “who am I and where am I going?” He thoroughly enjoys raspberry jelly donuts, long walks on the beach, and any movie titled “Gladiator.” In conversation, he is likely to ask, “Does that movie have a gladiator in it? No? Then why bore me with the details any longer?”
Elizabeth is an idealist with a strong opinion about black jellybeans. Her favorite thing in the world is when someone writes “wash me” on a dirty car, and she believes that pyramid schemes are a great business model. She enjoys oversized earmuffs and undersized belts. In late 2009, she set out for a southern-hemisphere-summer of scaling glaciers in Antiarctica. The trip was life changing, as in one critical moment, the icy floor gave way beneath her and she suddenly found herself face to face with an angry mob of macaroni penguins. In self defense, she slayed dozens, but the resulting guilt was overwhelming. Attempting to atone for the slaughter, she founded the first Benedectine monastary in Antiarctica and mandated that each monk be paired with an orphaned macaroni penguin. Although many argued that the cohabitation of humans and pengiuns would be beneficial to neither party, she persevered. Also, she has an extensive collection of paperclips shaped like brontosauri.
For a time, Brice was a professional mermaid trainer at the zoo in Omaha, Nebraska, but mostly just because it was a good opportunity to meet mermaids. Now, he splits his time brewing up delicious coffee and testing experimental anxiety medications. He's a true renaissance man. He stands up when a lady enters and exits the room. He dots his i's with little hearts and fills in his o's with smiley faces. He uses a brand new tooth brush for every brushing and does a weekly workout with 8 pound dumbells. Once upon a time, he re-enacted every scene from the beloved cinema classic, Air Bud, simply by whistling and performing a bizarre dance interpretation that can only be described as haunting and arcane. It was beautiful. People wept.
Madison has the voice of an Anthemusan siren and the forearm strength of 10 men. Our espresso grinder once broke and she stepped in by grinding coffee with her bare hands. She is also our designated jar opener. You might be surprised to know she has an average IQ. While many people enjoy collecting stamps, she collects envelopes. She even has a full set! She placed 43rd in the 2014 World Series of Poker and is the co-creator of the Sham-Wow. Also, her favorite color is plaid.
