The T.Dot Scene: Dark Horse + Andy Warhol

{Trendy expresso bar in Toronto}
Yesterday was 'artsy' kind of day. First, I went to the Dark Horse Espresso Bar, my favorite coffee place amidst the fun, hip, artsy types in Toronto's trendy Queen West neighborhood. It started with one shop and has now grown to four - which is too bad. The 'mom and pop' aspect of the place is what appealed to me to begin with. Yet, the espresso is too good for me to really care, so I will continue to enjoy this place. Later that afternoon I finally framed two of my Warhol pictures. One was placed above the bed in the spare room  and the other in the study. I only have one more painting that needs to be framed left. I promised my family this is the last of the 'pop art' in our home. Apparently it's 'messing' with the hybrid of clean modern/shabby-chic look that they have going on.
