Where I have tea with a few of my favorite artists.

And one strange girl with cats.

We were in Culver City today and decided to see if Royal T was open. It was so we had a bit to eat with a nice green tea.

Cheesecake and a really yummy brownie.

While sitting next to one of my favorite artist's work, Takashi Murakami.

It's an interesting space. Designed more towards holding events there than a restaurant or art gallery. Still the food and maids were quite nice.

And as the sign says, the exhibit was Warholian, which was fun to see some of Andy's work in person.

Also lovely to see Yoshitomo Nara's work.

Right now there is an Emily the Strange pop-up shop there and an event Tuesday night.

While they did have some things to buy, it seemed a bit understocked. Possibly saving things for Tuesday's Masquerade? I was surprised to see they still had Pullip dolls there. Although it was a little not so great that the sales lady didn't know that Jun Planning was not the maker of the dolls and started arguing when I mentioned that...kind of killed off any sale.

But it was fun to see the various Emily the Strange products. Especially the window clings which I really wish they would make to sell. Along with Emily's chair.

So there is part of my day in Culver City. A rather interesting area which we seem to end up at from time to time.
