Enjoying the beautiful weather, we were hanging in the telegraph/temescal area early today and came across mixing bowl. Really chill place with a good vibe. The owner there was really nice and gave us cookies for free — no reason, just welcoming us. Coffee there was very good. They use "barefoot coffee" brand. They also have special teas too, which we will try next time. Support this cool local spot!I’m liking the area the more i go. Very relaxed, not too crowded. I found an article about my band vidya was published online for the oakland tribune. So i headed down to piedmont ave to see if i could pick up a copy. What a chore! Paper machines were all jacked up. But i enjoyed the sights and cool breeze on the way. Finally got a copy but it looks like the article will published in tomorrow’s paper, sunday. Happy 4th!
