I applied this philosophy of pairing a wall with an adventure to a unique part of the city last weekend when we visited this colorful, darling heart wall located in Atwater Village, which is an up and coming hipster haven. Last weekend there was a sample sale for Clare V. a few blocks away, so it was a perfect pairing. I knew that my husband would not want to go to either this heart wall or the Clare V. Sample sale, so I enticed him with the prime rib at Tam O' Shanter, a historic restaurant across the street from the wall. It turned out that the Clare V. sample sale was a zoo with a line stretching around the block, not to mention that my husband couldn't find any parking, so that was a bust, but we did get these fun pictures at the heart wall and a tasty lunch at Tam O' Shanter.
