West Seattle coffee talk: Blayne says bye-bye to Hotwire

(July 2009 West Seattle Grand Parade photo by Christopher Boffoli)
Once you’ve been grand marshal of the West Seattle Grand Parade, what’s left to do on the peninsula? Two and a half months after that high-riding moment – and a year after his stint on the nationally televised reality show “Project Runway – the barista known best as Blayne is about to leave his four-year job at Hotwire Coffee (WSB sponsor). We caught up with Blayne late this morning to ask about his plans after his last Hotwire day tomorrow:

You can see his fashion/design work here. If you want to say goodbye in person, Blayne told us he’ll be working tomorrow morning (but that’s as specific as he’d get).

    Hey Blayne,

    Dunno what your plans are next, but if you’re in the market for another barista job let me know! Remember drinking those champagne/vitamin waters at pride??? ; )

    Are you serious? There is nothing else happening anywhere else? Really?

    We love you Blayne and our Furry Faces Foundation you designed for us! Remember, you are a lifetime F-cuber and will always be on the A-list.
    Hugs, everyone at F3

    Slightly OT: my six year old saw that horse at the parade. She remains completely convinced that unicorns are real, and refuses to consider that this was not a real, live, unicorn. To her, it is proof positive that unicorns, the tooth fairy, and Santa exist.

    Blayne will be sadly missed… but good luck to him in his future ventures!!!!

Sorry, comment time is over.
