Nighthawks West!

On our weekly trip through Railroad Square in Santa Rosa, California, Edward Hopper's famous Nighthawks suddenly appeared on the side of a boarded-up, long-abandoned Asian restaurant. The painter is Judy Kennedy, a local artist of some celebrity.

That's all we know so far. This thing is brilliant; I wanna go in for a cup of coffee each time I view it. The mural is on Wilson Street at the corner of College Avenue.

Around the corner  on College is a rendition of Jerry Garcia on another abandoned building. Artist unknown.

Eventually we could not resist and wrangled up a '42 Chevy and a time warp so we could have a cup of java at the Nighthawks cafe.

Here is the video
