I’m having some major blogger’s block right now. I’ve got some sick pictures of Shelby skipping around Silver Lake, but nothing really to say about them. You should know that Silver Lake is a hipster neighborhood in Los Angeles north of Downtown. It’s all hilly and beautiful with cute little shops and awesome restaurants. It’s also about 40 minutes from where I live (in West LA), so it’s far enough that I feel like I’m going on a day trip when I go there.
Silver Lake has a lot of cool history. Silver Lake was the location of the first large Walt Disney Studio and it was the “nexus of Los Angeles’ gay leather subculture” (according to Wikipedia). Now it’s home to Ryan Gosling, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and a bunch of hipsters. It’s also where that Netflix Original show Love was set. Not that I saw it but that’s what people tell me.
We had beers and snacks at Hyperion Public. Get the truffle mac and cheese and avocado fries. SO DAMN GOOD.
Where do the hipsters hang out in your town?
