This Hot Cocoa Is Way Better Than That Crap I’ve Been Drinking At Starbucks: An Evening At The Raven Cafe In Prescott

the hot cocoa here is way better than that crap i've been drinking at starbucks.

Coral and I just ate dinner at The Raven Cafe. We ate upstairs and outside and watched the sun go down. The grandparents have the kids and have given us the opportunity to have a date night while we’re here in Prescott. I guess the “date” part is over because we’ve moved inside, grabbed our computers from the car, ordered hot cocoa’s and I’m typing this post as Coral edits photos. We’re also sharing a blueberry mousse. Actually, I haven’t had a bite of it yet. Coral may or may not be hogging it. You be the judge. Ok, I just had a bite and Coral can have the rest of it. Anyway…

This place is awesome. Great food. Great drinks. Free wifi. If you ever find yourself in Prescott I suggest you put The Raven Cafe on your “places to check out” list.

Oh, they also play great music. What music you ask? Well, they’re playing Arcade Fire right now, which means I don’t even have to put on my headphones to rock my favorite Pandora station.

See ya!

Staying At The Stay

I finally hooked my phone up to twitter so I can promote Unique LA in real time during set up and as the event progresses throughout the day. My computer time the last couple of weeks has been limited quite a bit as I’ve been preparing for this event so I’ve taken to using twitter a lot more. And fancy me, I even set up a twitpic account! If twitter’s your thing you can follow me at twitter.com/jeffclaassen.

So, today consisted of going to bed at 4:30am after a long night of packing and taking inventory on all the goodies I’m displaying at Unique. I woke up at 9:09am and was on the freeway heading south to Los Angeles at 10:45am. We went straight to the venue and set up. Seeing all the booths was super exciting. I am still in awe at how many vendors take their booth so seriously. It’s awesome. I’ve been to shows in the past where people throw a table cloth over their table and that’s it. At Unique though, the vendors aren’t messing around! I feel honored to be included. Ok, more about the show later. Today was strictly set up and tomorrow it’s open to the public. Come by and check it out! I’m booth 231. For directions and whatnot visit uniquela.com.

For tonight’s excitement we’re staying at…get ready for it, Stay. This place is awesome! I’m in the lobby right now as I’m typing and am totally stoked. Rooms are $25-$65. And check out how awesome this place is.

Did I mention the room I’m staying in has a hand chair. I feel like Buster in Arrested Development.
