Smell the roses. Smell the coffee. Whatever it is that makes you happy.
- Rita Moreno, EGOT Recipient
Ya gotta respect any opinion expressed by an EGOT recipient. And there is certainly no arguing with the elegant Ms. Moreno's views about the beneficial effects of pleasing aromas.
One place where pleasing aromas certainly abound is The Back Door Bakery Cafe in Sunland/Tujunga. Actually, this week, you could scratch the "Sunland" part of the name, considering the deluge that our intrepid quizzers braved to gather at the BDB this week.
What better place to quiz your way through a storm than the warm, welcoming environs of the BDB, where the room is warm, the people are welcoming, and the smells!? Oh my goodness, the smells! I mean, COME ON! It's a bakery, after all, right?
SO there we were, gathered near the pastries, to engage in trivia battle among friends and neighbors. Brian and Sarah (photo #4 above) provided the most appropriate team name of the night, Cats & Dogs Outside. But it was warm and toasty inside, and you could find worse ways to get through a winter evening.
So join us. We'll be back next Wednesday. Come for the delicious food. Stay for the trivia (food for thought). We'll nourish you, body and soul!
