Then on to Urban Outfitters. I was disappointed in their store in Hillcrest, one of my favorite neighborhoods. It was soooo small, and had none of the "Apartment" goods I wanted to browse. Next time I'll try the store in the East Village, or go to my fave in Costa Mesa.
Next up was the trek to El Cajon, another 30 minutes, I'm driving in a rough long narrow triangle shape, here! The Cozy Quilt Shop, is a new destination for me. My blog friend Darlene mentioned their "Strip Club", and I wanted to check it out. I had no idea what to expect, but I'm the adventurous sort.
This is what it was: 70+ women turned out to hear a presentation, "each month we release a new Strip Club pattern designed to use 2 ½" strips". You come into the shop, (after making several wrong turns, my directions weren't great), you are greeted, and handed your copy of the free pattern, and a raffle ticket. At the back of the shop are chairs for the presentation, plus water, coffee, cookies and cupcakes! The women come early, and they apparently come often. The shop owner and pattern designer, Daniela Stout, gave the presentation. She was very warm and funny. At the end of the presentation, there was a drawing for 3 door prizes. Good times, I'll go again.
Now, for some more fun. I've always love a good Flash Mob video.

This was a fake commercial made in 1998 for a series of educational shorts about action figures based on historical figures. Its educational value was somewhat suspect. It was never aired. FineMoustaches
