And to blog. Turning the camera on Mr. Champion for a change. He's a man of few words so this post will be as well. Shop his classic style after the jump.
Coffee is one of those things that when I graduated from college I made a concerted effort to enjoy just like other things adults are supposed to crave such as sushi and exercise. I was no longer relying heavily on the substances of dorm life aka beer and weed so I felt a hole in my life addiction wise plus I was a newly working actor who spent a lot of time running from audition to audition and often needed a place to hang out in between. The streets of New York are cold, coffee shops are warm and a plain cup of joe is usually the cheapest thing on the menu. At first it wasn't easy. I needed a strong milk to coffee ratio to make it ease down my gullet but now like any good addiction I could probably take it straight up if that was my only option.
When I was a kid growing up in Baltimore it was a family tradition to celebrate birthdays at the Olive Garden. Now I'm a grown up living in L.A. and the new tradition seems to be trekking out to the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs like we did this past weekend for Grasie's b-day. Not that I'm complaining, I would be lying if I said it wasn't a bit of an upgrade. Although...let's give it up for unlimited salad and breadsticks!
