Alice and I checked out the Royal/T studio today, a 10,000 square foot art space, cafe, and retail store, which opened up a couple weeks ago. Just Love Me is the art studio's opening exhibition, which explores the complexity of cuteness, and the yearning it reveals in artistic expression today.

S Bar - 6304 Hollywood Blvd.

The European vibe consisted of framed art hanging on Victorian patterned wallpaper and comfortable, sleek couches. The crowd consisted of classy young professionals who were dancing to pop music mixed with dance beats. A cool place to kick it with friends and catch up.…
