Don't Get Stoned on Sunday Morning

For Johnny Cash's hit song Sunday Morning Coming Down  he guzzled one beer and his second beer was his dessert.  He could have gone to Peet's Coffee in Palo Alto and ordered a Grande Coffee and sat at the Peet's patio and enjoyed the world music of French guitarist Didier Bouvert.
