Good morrrrrrning, sunshine! What an eye-opener at Conspire this morning -- a large latte with four shots of espresso to get my brain cranked up, plus some sweets to share. Vegan doughnuts are a Conspire staple that I can't resist, while the pumpkin-chocolate chip cupcake with cream cheese icing was a seasonal perk.
Like the funny little drawing on the front porch bannister? I didn't do it, I swear. I sat down to look at the paper (with a view of the yard that they're tearing up to create a patio), and there it was -- pencil included. Inside the shop, there was a whole display of fun Dia de los Muertos-inspired art and handmade gifty things. And they were playing The Dead Weather.
If you still haven't been to Conspire, you're missing out on one of downtown's quirkiest hangouts.
