Today I decided to walk along the promenade in my beloved East Arts Village neighborhood of Downtown, Long Beach. Here is the World Famous Blue Cafe. It's closed right now due to a flood but it's a great place. I had my 30th birthday party here, listening to BB Chung King, came and participated in the "Best Damn Poetry Slam" every Sunday afternoon and ate great chicken Nachos!
Here's hoping it doesn't close! The Mama's Boys need a good place to play and the promenade would not be the same without the aroma of good food, sounds of good music, the sights of half nekked women and classic cars lining the streets but most of all "Me" just jottin it all down and shooting pics!
BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!
