Crista Luedtke opened El Barrio, a bar specializing in tequila, mescal, bourbon and craft cocktails in Guerneville, in 2014 because she needed overflow space. Her nearby restaurant, Boon Eat + Drink, was regularly generating a long wait, and customers had few options for biding their time. Certainly, the small Russian River Valley community had never had a bar like El Barrio, which peddles $12 craft cocktails and a $9 serving of guacamole. “People thought I was nuts,” Luedtke says, “opening a craft cocktail bar in a one-horse town.” 📷: @brianlfrank
Gary and Dwayne. I asked to take there picture and Dwayne (right) hesitates “This ain’t going on TV, magazine? You know, we are respectable people. We don’t wear these clothes all the time... we change our clothes, we go to work and we go home” and we both agreed that appearance is nothing, it’s all about the inside. #humansinthehood .
East Harlem, 2018. Film roll later!
So much heart and so much hope when the kids yoga class at Harlem Yoga Studio @harlemyoga talks NON-VIOLENCE. ❤️ 🕊❤️🕊 Each month the studio has a theme (this month is most appropriately ahimsa, or nonviolence), and every quarter, a charity partner (right now, the @violencepolicycenter) where a portion of profits are donated. Small businesses doing big things. #Harlem#EastHarlem#ElBarrio#Kids#Yoga#Ahimsa#Nonviolence [📷 by @maddiewarr]
