Yansparty

Yan Turns the Big 4-0!

Last Friday marked our technician Yan’s 40th birthday.  His wife had an elaborate surprise party planned that we all managed to keep under wraps for more than two weeks.  It was a great evening full of laughs, street tacos, Micheladas, and Mariachis.

Happy 40th Yan from everyone at Solutions!

Solutions Espresso Volunteer Day

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. the solutions crew volunteered our time on Monday January 18th 2016 to help make San Diego a better place, at least for those who use the bike path where Murphy Canyon Road comes to a dead end.

Shopping Cart

We spent our morning digging plastic cups out of bushes and wading in tall grass to clean up the area.  In the short time we were out there we made quite a dent, picking up 8 full bags of miscellaneous litter, a box full of small used propane tanks, a shopping cart (which came in handy transporting the trash bags to the car) and quite a few random pieces of screen door, A/C units, 2×4’s and drywall.

In the end it was a good way to spend our morning, fresh air, blue sky, and doing a good deed.  A biker on his way by even thanked us.  We consider Solutions Espresso’s First Annual MLK Day of Service a success!
