Okay, so maybe some strangers at Smelly Cat might be upset if you randomly hug them, but the lady I did was totally cool about it.
So I was supposed to meet someone there that I had been emailing and we had spoken on the phone. I had a photo of her…as I walked in to the coffee shop this lady who looked SOOOO much like the photo smiled, got up and said hello. I said hi and introduced myself and hugged her….and she said, “you are not the person I am meeting.” But she was good about the whole hugging thing.
So anyhoo- this place has great coffees and pastries and totally cool vibe. It is the epicenter of the neighborhood run club and apparently of ninja huggers like me.
