New signage at the Sunset Junction Coffee Shop sparks a meditation by our favorite culture blog about the lack of 24-hour dining options in Silver Lake.
Here's an excerpt from the posting on the Decemberists-inspired Los Angeles, I'm Yours:
Why a place like the 101 Coffee Shop or Swingers isn’t in this notorious storefront is beyond us. It seems so obvious: quality food, later hours, lots of people who will return for that reason. Perhaps there is a zoning code or maybe the desire is not there? Maybe. But, really, have you been to the Sunset and Foutain Del Taco at 2AM? I have on multiple occasions. And it is always packed. And as if all the people there actually *want* to be there!
Even in Echo Park, the notorious Brite Spot shuts down at 3 a.m.
TELL US: How would a place like Swingers do in our 'hood?
And where are you snacking late-night in the absence of one?
