Bauhaus Books and Coffee
on Capitol Hill

Did you ever go to the Bauhaus Books and Coffee? It was at the corner of Melrose Avenue and East Pine Street, close to Melrose Market. The building is being remodeled now so they closed the place down and I miss it.


However, they reopened no more than one block away from the former place. They still have the bookcases filled with old books and what I particularly like is that it is now oriented south and really sunny in the morning. They also have a nice deck on the second floor.
On a sunny early spring morning, I had a very tasty Cappuccino to start my day and decided where I would head.

Modern ink paintings with a great sense of humor

Chinese painting exhibit? Yes, but this one is a really modern and funny one. It’s a small show that occupies one only room in the Seattle Asian Art Museum.

My favorites:
Rights infringements: “Every now and then one hears of so called famous people filling out lawsuits against infringements on their image rights. Now that electronic mice are everywhere do the mice ladies and gentlemen have any plans?”
Celebrities of peace: “The white pigeon muses that, since the world is still an unsafe place in the 21st century, it will continue to be employed. The grey pigeon thinks no matter what I cannot contract the bird flu.”

In a completely different style: you should not miss “WISHES FOR LONGEVITY”, a wonderful 5-panel work.
