LOS ANGELES — This recent “summer-in-January” Los Angeles weather has been great. In celebration of this beautiful weather, we’re putting on the easiest scavenger hunt ever. Let’s celebrate the great coffee in downtown LA…and we’ll reward you for your efforts!
Here’s how it works:
1 - Grab your bicycle/car/motorcycle/moped/helicopter and visit The Coffee Bar LA and Spring for Coffee on Los Angeles St.
2 - Get receipts from both visits (between now and Monday 1/16)
3 - Bring the receipts to Handsome Headquarters (starting 1/16, ending when we run out of “You Did It” super secret rewards)
Complete these three modest tasks, and we’ll give you a tour of the soon-to-be-opening Handsome Coffee Roastery/Coffee Bar, make you as much coffee as you can handle, and give you a special little sumthin’ as a thank you for supporting some damn fine downtown coffee spots..and should you fail to achieve, even in the modest task you were charged, I have no choice but to tell these bums that they should do whatever is necessary to recover their money from you, Jeffery Lebowski.
And you can do it…because I did it just this afternoon. It feels like a sunny summer day downtown, especially on a bike. Today, I left the Handsome Headquarters and rode to The Coffee Bar LA on Spring St, which took me less than ten minutes. From The Coffee Bar I headed south, and within 5 minutes, was at Spring For Coffee’s new location on Los Angeles St.
