Put A Ring On…” is the latest community installation of YARN BOMBING L.A., a guerrilla movement of yarn crafters who bring their art into the community. Putting a ring symbolically and literally on anything treasured, I chose MEL as my special community place because I have been patronizing it with my family ever since I moved into the neighborhood of Sunset Plaza.
At MEL’s, I have celebrated birthdays and had Sunday brunches throughout the year and over the years. I know the very professional yet friendly staff who know me. I have my favorite table and booth. MEL’s feels like an extension of myself into the world.
