Just down from the Capitol building in Boise is this unique corner on Capitol & Idaho. This corner used to be a Starbucks, then became a Tully’s Coffee, then became Caffe’ Capri Coffee and now is a Sushi joint. I have a history of drawing cool local sites, only to see them go out of business or become something else more “hip”. This is one of those.
Everytime I see the hipster glasses, I am entertained. They remind me of a cartoon I watched on the Bugs Bunny Show. Once in awhile there would be a spot for Foghorn Leghorn, that giant rooster. On that cartoon, he would sometimes babysit a chick that was very smart (located on the front row of the pic next to Ghandi…) and very nerdy. I believe that’s where it all began.
30 yrs from now, we’ll all be entertained in the same way we look at silk shirts with HUGE collars from the 70’s. And ask ourselves, “What were we thinking?”.
