Beastie Boys Book
The Beastie Boys were a huge part of the soundtrack to my teenage years and it continued into my adult life. You can imagine how excited I was to learn that Mike D and Ad-Rock wrote a book! An autobiography! Amazing! I don’t want to reveal any spoilers but I can tell you that it’s full of great stories and hip hop history. The book is fat, very fat and it’s intimidating to view but as soon as you start reading the pages will fly by. This book is a must-read for any hip hop fan but it’s an extra must-read for anyone with a love of the Beastie Boys.

Polly’s Gourmet Coffee
Polly’s Gourmet Coffee is a comfy, cozy neighborhood coffee house in the beachside community of Belmont Shores, CA that serves up some damn good coffee. Owner Mike Shelldrake has been freshly roasting coffee beans right in his store in his vintage 1929 German Probat coffee roaster for decades. He knows his coffee, loves his customers and gives back to the community that he’s been a part of since 1976 regularly.
Polly’s serves up specialty coffee drinks, teas, fresh baked pastries and punny jokes daily. Stop by and say hello or place your order online to have great coffee delivered to your door. Try one of my go-to faves … La Minute Costa Rican or Alan’s Blend!

The theme this month is Gifts, so Alison turns inward and after much hand-wringing comes up with fours gifts she has given herself.
We all have one – someone who is challenging to buy for. Jean shares how she deals with buying that special something for that special someone.
This time of year is always so busy. It’s great to have some easy recipes for those last minute parties and gatherings. Jean and Patti thought you’d enjoy this one.
