Downtown Artsy Folks
Last weekend we got our first real taste of the LA arts district. We live so close by and yet have never truly explored what we now know to be a really rad area. Some new friends invited us over for a Sunday funday in their hood, so we accompanied them to several super hip coffee shops, an incredibly inspiring local craftsmen bazaar and a delicious bite at The Pie Hole. The entire neighborhood is just a cluster of old warehouses decorated with brightly painted murals. Interesting people with interesting passions fill the streets and shops of that area, and we instantly fell in love. We have decided that when/if we return to Los Angeles that we WILL be settling down in the Arts District!
(The arrow tattoo above is something I picked up on our day trip in the Arts District. It is a Tattly temporary tattoo! I've been an admired of the Tattly tats for quite a while. They are really cute. Check out their site. Tattly.com)
