6(1) My boyfriend at one of our many coffee shop stops. Stumptown, Victrola, BauHaus, Caffe Vita, and Cafe Presse all deserve a visit.
(2) I made a new beer discovery while at Quinn's for happy hour! Echt Kriekenbier is just as lusciously sweet as Lindeman's Framboise.
(3-4) Quinn's has an incredible happy hour. We ordered a couple of rounds of beers and 3 small plates for about $25.
(5) Anchovies+Olives might have been the best dinner I've had all year. Quaint room dimly lit, save for the bright open kitchen that had this zen-like quiet hum. My favorite was the bigoli pasta. "Oyster Power Hour" is from 10p to close, $1 per oyster and $5 glasses of Reisling. Full meal including 20 plump Kumamoto oysters, alcohol, dessert, and exceptionally attentive service = $80. I shit you not. You cannot find this full-bodied experience or value in LA.
(6) Unicorn Bar is the new dive in hipsterville Capitol Hill, and also where I tried Unicorn Jizz for the first time. And believe me I am going back for seconds.
