Unurban Cafe: My First L.A. Local

Within walking distance of where we’re staying in Santa Monica is a great coffee shop/music venue/offbeat personality salon — The Unurban Cafe.  It reminds me a lot of my college hangout Meshuggahs — on the Delmar Loop in St. Louis.  (For a New York reference point, think Williamsburg’s The Read only three times as big and twice as laid back.)

If you’d like to see what the Unurban Cafe looks like, (and where I’m writing from right now) have a look at this unintentionally hilarious video clip from — go figure — a self-styled movie location scout.
