Hey’yo, it’s me, reporting from THE HIFF LOUNGE. Tucked away on the second floor of Dole Cannery, just an escalator ride up, there’s an oasis brought to you by our friends at concept furniture boutique fishcake.
Bigger and better than before, it’s basically, the perfect arena to do what I’m doing now: eat something/anything/everything, have a post-screening discussion with friends on the merits of mumblecore, log onto some free wi-fi brought you by Verizon, while waiting to see BLANK CITY for the second time (or whatever else NOT cool people do before noon).
If there’s one thing I learned from the documentary Helvetica or this year’s ART + DESIGN series, it’s that I’m not alone in judging businesses based on their font selection. I don’t see any Papyrus within a half-mile radius of this joint, so HIFF and fishcake are guilty of nothing here.
