I'm BACK!!! Thank You Fresh & Easy Express
Denizens of the Temple!
How's it hanging?! It's been awhile which I blame on the general inaccessibility of the nearest Fresh & Easy to my Fairfax District of Los Angeles abode. I mean, really, Hollywood Blvd? Underground parking lot? It is a nightmare.
Plus there is a Whole Foods one block away, the famous Los Angeles Farmer's Market across the street and four Trader Joe's within 2 miles. (Plus one being built at the end of my street, due to open in March 2012)
Still, I missed Fresh & Easy. Thought about heading to Hollywood Blvd many times, then remembered the nightmare parking (not to mention the traffic) and headed to Trader Joe's instead.
I have forsaken the Temple, I realize this.
So imagine how excited I was on Sunday night, when I was driving home from Oakley's birthday party and I saw the brand new Fresh & Easy Express at 1788 S. La Cienega Blvd.
Tonight I drove over there.
And spent $107 with the coupon for $5 off.
You have to work really hard to spend over $100 at Fresh and Easy.
Or you have to be suffering serious Fresh & Easy withdrawals.
I will have reviews of the many new products I bought tonight over the coming week.
What I can say now, is the store was pretty, with hardwood floors and an awesome coffee station. It is about 1/2 the size of a regular F&E store, but I didn't notice a ton of missing product. Certain favorites were not there, but whether that was because they don't stock them (Chicken Escalopes!), or they were out of them, who knows. I was there at 930pm and the F&E truck was outside, so... I don't know.
I am BACK! WOO HOO!
