Whenever I make the trek to a major city I like to scoot out of the downtown core asap and head over the to the other side of the bridge or across the tracks per se. Just far enough from the big name stores and large hotel chains to where the good stuff is. The really good stuff .
Where small independent coffee shops brew up a pretty mean cuppa joe AND homemade donuts!! Donuts so damn good you can’t have just one. Trust me. Remember vinyl??? There are record shops here too. A couple, I think…
It’s where Mom and Pop owned and run eateries whip up something more than special from scratch and not from a bucket….
It’s where there are hole in the wall pubs with locals dropping by with bongos in hand and beat up guitars and original songs to share…..
and a good ole’ thrift/vintage shop or three fresh for treasure hunting. Whoo, be still my beating heart.
It is a street where ideas are hatched, born and raised.
Oh I love you Main Street. Bless your awesomeness. Bless your original vibe. I love your community. I love you to the moon and back.
what makes your heart happy when you travel? are you a downtown cat or across the tracks indy? happy friday, have a groovy weekend! xo
