FOAMING AT THE MOUTH IN LAKE LAS VEGAS ...!

                             

On hearing that I was in Nevada this week, Our Friendly Neighborhood Cappuccino Connoisseur Mel -- known for his penchant for iced cappuccinos topped with hot foam and prepared "just so" -- sent me the following message:  "I'm told it's the law in Nevada that you can't mix hot foam with ice ... thus no dry iced cappuccinos with non-fat foam in Nevada ... Sorry."  Call me a rebel, but I decided to put Mel's theory to the test.  "You have to help me," I said to the Barista at the Starbucks in my hotel, "I'm a real foam-a-holic.  Could you make me an iced cappuccino with lots of extra hot foam?"  Moments later, I was enjoying a dry iced cappuccino with gobs of hot foam ... and no one arrested me.  Here's mud in your eye, Mel ...!

I'm shocked and surprised that you would conspire with a local Nevada Barista to break State law in Nevada regarding the prohibition of mixing non-fat foam with ice.  I'd suggest you get back to Calif. right away and pray that we don't have an extradition treaty with Nevada for this offense.

What does Mel know?  Maybe that was his own rule.
