Inspiration Station

Having friends in from out of town is always great because you can go and try new places together and not look like a complete loser eating and taking pics of your food. This place is right up the street from me and I've been meaning to check it out for a while. 

A little Juan Angel Chavez piece to calm my urine stream. 

Donut game on lock. Cutting the donut in half, then filling with filling is pretty on point. 

Chilaquiles. BOOOOOOBS. Delicious boobs at that. This place was spot on for brunch. The service, pacing and food execution was great. I must have been living under a rock because $3 donuts seem to be the norm these days. 

Stopped by the pop up Lolla store and saw that the homie Sent rock finished the live art collab portion. Always good to step out of your element sometimes. Interracial harmony at its best.

Checked out the Art Alliance "Provocateurs" show at the Block 37 space. There were some heavy hitters showing here all curated by Shepard Fairey. 

Hell yeah Lee. I still think he deserves an Oscar for his performance in Wild Style. "What the fuck Chico man..."


So artsy bro. 

Good show all around, it was so awesome to see people's art outside of the instagram world. I don't know if it was inspiring or more education on how the art world works in this city. I think it will always be a struggle with these kinds of big shows and seeing how people react and become experts all of a sudden only to never support anything remotely local. Some of these people have no clue as to whats going on in their own city when shows like this come around and its depressing/empowering/enraging/happy to me. As Facebook would put it, it's "complicated."
