Public Access Media + Caffe Vita = Chromeo

| October 6, 2008

Below is an interview which took place in the Caffe Vita bean room, conducted by Public Access Media, over Block Party weekend with Chromeo this summer. We were very lucky to have had the opportunity to grace the presence of such an awesome act. Chromeo is Pee Thug and Dave 1: best friends since their adolescence, virtuoso musicians, and walking hip hop encyclopedias. Chromeo is slick. Chromeo is dripping with reverb. Chromeo is Moog riffs, luxurious harmonies, macho guitar solos and real-deal songcraft. After their performance on main stage we ushered them through way of candle lit underground passage, bypassing the thousands of screaming fans, and into our make-shift studio for a smooth sexy interview. Enjoy!

The Historic Sorrento Hotel

| October 2, 2008



The Sorrento Hotel just made the switch to Caffe Vita coffee. We couldn’t be happier to have our coffee floating about in such a glamorous setting; easily the sexiest old school hotel in Seattle. We highly recommend the Hunt Club for late weekend brunch. Hidden away in their loungy bar it is easy to imagine you are living in the bygone era of Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and the lovely Josephine Baker.

Cremant Absinthe Dinner

| October 1, 2008

Here are some delightful drawings that Joey Veltkamp crafted for a dinner Caffe Vita and One Pot hosted in the charming private dining room at Cremant – chef Scott Emerick and crew prepared a fleet of traditional absinthe cocktails replete with burning cubes of sugar, elaborate absinthe spoons, and ornate antiquities – and the food was stunning…

We highly recommend the new batch of absinthe Cremant just secured – pop in and see what all the hype is about.
