I know customized cards can be pricey, but one) I am supporting a friend (who is a local artist), two) I will be able to express my love for others through these personalized cards and three) they will be one of a kind!
While waiting for Vivacious Victoria in Silverlake, I tried Yerba Maté for the first time (I do love trying new things), and I tried it the traditional way.
Supposedly, this is how they drink it in the jungles of South America. It's supposed to revitalize your spirit and refresh your body. It's earthy and leafy. It provides natural caffeine.
But my unrefined tastebuds could not handle it. I couldn't like it. I really tried. I tried 3 cups plain. Even after 5 bags of Splenda, it tasted like sweetened bitter, dirty hay.
I set it aside, and started watching the people who walked in...
Only in L.A.,
at a hipster, artsy cafe in Silverlake
They’re playing Billie Holiday.
Not my favorite song of Lady Day’s,
but awesome nonetheless.
Only in L.A…
does the door of a hipster cafe
one by one
a gang of road warriors,
a pack of asphalt leather clad,
heavy moustached, heavy booted, heavy chained,
six foot tattooed giants
order oriental princess tea,
and spinach quiches.
Have a wonderful day, wherever and whoever you may be!
