I'm officially addicted to coffee

I missed my afternoon cup of coffee yesterday and had a headache all night long and even into this morning. Sitting at Crema at the base of the Oakland Tribune building and having a nice latte. Five minutes after taking my first sips... headache gone. This is not good. The wife has been like this for years. I guess I'm screwed now.
13th Street between Franklin and Broadway is turning into a nice little block. Besides from Crema there's Ba Vo across the street and a couple of other small eating spots. With the UC headquarters around the corner, this makes sense. Too bad the Oakland Tribune moved to a building closer to the airport. I wonder who occupies the Oakland Tribune tower now. Definitely an iconic Oakland landmark that needs to be repurposed in some way.
