Once again, it’s been Forever since last we blogged, and stuff has happened, is happening, and will be happening.
To begin with, tomorrow, April 20th is Record Store Day - which has celebrated independent record stores since 2007.
Javista, in collaboration with Omnivore Recordings and Amoeba Music, has created a celebratory cross-promotion which gives you a free drink - espresso-based, coffee, tea, cocoa: whatever! - for shopping at Amoeba Records, and brings you into our café to see the beyond-cool “Spaced Out!” exhibit of rare, space-themed album covers. (The free drink is offered with your purchase of premium pastry or sandwich.)
Omnivore Recordings producer Cheryl Pawelski has collected these gorgeous and occasionally-hilarious record covers for years, and generously shared part of her much larger exhibit with us at Javista - thirteen of our favorites are on our cafe walls for the next month for our first art show using our NEW museum-quality hanging system.
What else? Well, we’ve added some delicious new handmade treats to our pastry shelves, including tender salted caramels (below), and the deeply-rich espresso fudge and flourless pecan cookies.
Our protective awning, up for a few months, has finally been labeled, and now both protects our customers from the sun, and identifies us for passing pedestrians and cars as they whiz by on Sunset Blvd.
Our favorable Yelp reviews have gone off the charts - we’re so grateful to our customers who’ve taken the time to write about their favorite Javista offerings, and their happiest impressions of our place. These reviews have been more than we ever could’ve hoped for, and they’ve helped us so much. The joint is jumpin’.
Finally: It is known - when you play the Game of Coffee, you either win, or you are insufficiently caffeinated.
(You can make your own “Games of Thrones” sigil here.)
