It Only Tuesday: A Chinatown Vibe Tuneup

Liam Mooney - July 26, 2016


It’s a Tuesday afternoon at Jackpine. Koreana is closed. The sky is cloudy. The vibe is solemn and slow. What’s a studio to do?

Luckily, we’re developing a Chinatown Vibe Tune-up strategy for occasions just like this.

Step 1: Robo

Our first stop is Bar Robo for some much-needed caffeine and snacks. Bonus points if we double up on double-flavoured cookies.


Step 2: Revan

Next, we need to stretch our legs, around the block and down to Percy Station.

Dogs are a good excuse for a walk, so we take full advantage when there’s one around. We thought about leaving Revan at the trading post in exchange for a Bowie CD, but we might need him again this week.


Step 3: Touching Things

We pause to touch some signs for luck and double high five Davey Jazz on our way back to work. One last stop on the stairs to take a snap with our ink portraits and we’re good to go.


Thus, our vibe is tuned up. Bring on the rest of the week.
