It was a Mystery Solved at 7th and Montana yesterday as I finally cracked the case of the Dueling Blogs. Three weeks ago, Barista David gave me a taste of my own medicine. He pointed his cell phone at me, took my photo and said "This is for my blog." But he refused to give me the URL ... leaving me to wonder what he was writing about. Now, at last, the truth can be told: His blog is a buyer's guide to medicinal marijuana. He calls it The Stoner Avenue Review and take it from me, he leaves no stone unturned in his candid assessments of the various marijuana dispensaries around town. In a post-Thanksgiving review of a location called The Dutch Masters Collective (DMC), for example, he writes, "DMC is the spot for a chill smoke overlooking Westwood and Santa Monica with superb weed at a capped price." Of the Westwood Caregivers (WCG), he writes, "For late night needs, this place is unbeatable." I'd warn David not to get too carried away with the whole blog thing, but that might be a bit like the pot calling the kettle black ...!
