Not 85 C

Monday morning I usually have errands to do in the Southcenter shopping area.  Last week I saw more than one report about 85°C Bakery Café, a famous Taiwanese bakery opening a shop there. This is its flagship store in the Northwest.   So I decided to make it my first stop and I was armed with my small sketch kit.

My plan fizzled out.  The store was closed due to a power loss.  I sketched the outside from my parked car.  I’ll try again next week.

    We drove by over the weekend and the lines were endless, umbrellas everywhere as people waited in the pouring rain. What a treat that they are here!

      That’s what the newspaper reported. I saw many people attempting to gain entry but couldn’t estimate whether there would have been a line. But Monday at 9 am, probably not.
