Artisan's Community Entertainment Café recently took over the downtown Olympia café previously occupied by Veritas.
A flyer promoting Artisan's open-mic poetry night (Tuesdays, at 8, for "slammers, beatniks, truth tellers & seekers" – my people) was the first thing that caught my eye. The other was hummingbird cake from Corina Bakery in Tacoma.
There were other Corina goodies in the pastry case, too. It's nice to see demand for Corina extends to the state capital.
Artisan's Community Entertainment Café: 109 N. Capitol Way, Olympia; 360-507-2202.
