Confused? Me, too. Think Austin Powers. Anyhoo, we wanted to give you a little background information on where we are and what the heck we are doing. So our address is 3321 Hyland Ave., Suite E in good ol’ Costa Mesa. Though that address is as vanilla as can be, the center we are in is anything but. It is home to a new boutique market place called the oc mart MIX (take a peek here: http://www.theocmartmix.com), home to the likes of some rad shades and spectacles from Alexander Gray, crazy art from Nomadic Industries and As Issued, bad @$$ two-wheelers from Nirve, and many more cool little shops to hop around in.
Speaking of Nirve, check out these guys we picked up from them:
Jerry and I have been zipping around on these guys looking for warehouse space around the area, visiting friends like Lan who work in the area, and just all-around green/eco-friendly errands that we can run within a five (5) mile radius of our spot. A big shout out goes out to Jeremy and Linda at Nirve who really took care of us. These bikes are so sweet that I picked up an extra one for my house and my fellow trouble maker Jenn(y)fer nabbed one as well.
So far, our new home has generated some crazy buzz from Riviera to Locale to the Los Angeles Times (who, incidentally, are throwing a huge grand opening for this center along with CHOC in December). Bounce around the internet and see what all the hubbub is about. Better yet, stop on by and take a look for yourself! You can see how our future restaurant is wrapped up in brown paper looking like a UPS package.
