No Last Chance, Little Amps, Harrisburg, December 2013

Hit-and-run holiday music by “No Last Call,” crowded into and outside of Little Amps, Harrisburg?

This season is best shared with surprise, generosity, and streetside tunes.

The Princeton: Ginger, lemon, and honey cappuccino, Little Amps, Harrisburg

It is a coffee that I’ve been waiting since August to taste — since I left Harrisburg for a semester in Pittsburgh and only came back on the weekends.

Known as the Princeton, this drink is the downtown cousin (only available on weekdays) to the Uptown Ginger Brown at Little Amps, Green Street.

It’s a cappuccino featuring a shot of espresso pulled into honey then graced with lemon zest and ginger. (The Uptown Ginger Brown swaps in brown sugar and orange zest).

On this December day, the bright citrus dances through the foamed milk and rich espresso, more reminiscent of ocean shores than snowdrifts on Second Street. Well worth a semester’s wait.
