On Sunday, March 11, please join me at Intelligentsia Coffee and Tea, at 1331 Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice. My current roommate (and erstwhile Korean classmate) will be serving up an intoxicating array of fine teas and coffees until 2 PM.
From 12 to 4 PM that same day, nearby Tortoise General Store will be holding a Japanese tea bowl fundraiser to benefit recovery efforts in the Tōhoku region. Flowers and baked goods will also be in the offing. Full details are available here.
Adventurous individuals can get to Venice from UCLA by public transportation. Take the Big Blue Bus #1 from Ackerman Terminal all the way to Pacific and Westminster. It’s about a 5-minute walk to Abbot Kinney from there.
