parking lot fun

Let me make it clear that I am in no way a foodie. I know nothing about food other than the fact that I like to eat it. Having said that, I would highly recommend the Old Vine Cafe in Costa Mesa. I thought the food was delicious (I must, however, be honest and admit that I generally find most food that I did not prepare to be delicious) but am also told by a bonafide foodie that this place is legit.

But I digress.

The reason I liked this place is that there were motivational (or inspirational) words in each parking space. I found myself walking around to all of the spots and reading each of the sayings. It made me think that if we're going to have something boring and functional like a parking lot (and there are many in such urban areas), we might as well make it fun! (I am also told that there's a Blockbuster in Hollywood with celebrities names in the spaces.)

(please note the irony in the photos above)

The restaurant was in this cute little area called the CAMP where there was a yoga place and a bunch of stores in an awesomely ecclectic "nontraditional" shopping center.
