I just went out in search of lunch. In case you haven’t noticed, it’s lovely and sunny outside and not at all chilly. Yet another indication of the impending weather apocalypse. In any case, I thought I’d grab a delicious seared tuna salad at the little Artizen Cafe, next to Ollie’s at 11th and E. And since I was being such a good girl and getting salad, I thought I’d also treat myself to the best hot chocolate downtown.
Or should I say, I meant to, because it turns out to be “closed until further notice.” Ugh. I have no idea why – could be any number of reasons. I’ll bemoan the loss of not only their hot chocolate, fresh salads, and decadent panini, but also the cheery modern style and the friendly service, a relief from the usual Potbelly’s Au Bon Pain’s Cosi’s in such abundance on every corner downtown (ok, I know Artizen was a chain as well but at least a different chain). Double Ugh. Where am I to get my serotonin chocolate rush now??
