I've been assigned some reading for my workshops, and what better place to read and feel connected then a local cafe. A quick google search, and a short bike ride later, I had found it.
Coffee Commissary is located on Fairfax, North of Melrose in West Hollywood; about a five minute bike ride from where I'm staying. The patio is lovely and spacious, the shop is airy and cool with a set of tables and a bar rail facing the street for people watching.
I ordered a mint tea and it came in the most gorgeous glass press-pot. The servers were very accommodating when I asked for a refill of hot water. Speaking of the servers, SO CUTE! They all wear collard shirts with either a tie, bow tie or suspenders. Very hipster.
I have three books that I am reading for different workshops. The first is Truth by Susan Batson - she thanks my coach Greg Braun, now of The New Collective in her introduction. The next book is The Drama of the Gifted Child by Alice Miller, as a psychologically introspective appendix to the acting work, and the third is Eight Characters of Comedy by Scott Sedita. I will be attending his Sitcom Acting Intensive workshop on Sunday.
Back to work, not that I'm complaining!
