Made ya look, right? LOL
Well, this really isn't a provocative blog update, but it brings to light something I did for others, out of the kindness of my heart when someone was in need.
I was literally about to fall asleep and I get a call from my friend Johnny (Calling from Chicago)...
He says "Hello, sir! Could you please run over to Handsome Coffee? Someone just broke in!" I didn't even hesitate and got there as fast as I could and met up with Marc Free. Marc was alerted to the incident and he needed to get to the owners of the joint (1am mind you), so I stood guard and made sure nobody broke could break in again.
Well, long story short, I have been hearing "Thank
you, thank you, thank you! You're our hero!" from everyone at Handsome. It was really nothing, just doing the right thing.
I'll just let them tell the story.

ARTS DISTRICT = BEST NEIGHBORHOOD EVER
HHQ — Because around 1:00AM someone smashed one of our windows and took an iPad. Wait, no, that sucked!
But there’s a silver lining that makes our loss a net gain. How so? Because we found out that we have some great friends in this little town of ours.
The smash and grab took place right around midnight. But no matter the hour, some of the most upstanding folks in Los Angeles (which puts them high in the running for most upstanding worldwide) waited by our broken door until we had been alerted and the LAPD had arrived. It’s just like Main Street, Anytown, USA, folks.
And we’d like to thank these gents for looking out for us, and really making the Arts District the community that it is. We’ve said it since we started, there really was nowhere else that Handsome wanted to be. This neighborhood welcomed us with a warm smile. And we love it.
Huge thanks to Wolf Hudson, Johnny White, and Marc Free for being the greatest neighbors anyone could ask for. Thanks for having our back.
