12. Lokal Hotel
A year ago this month we finished our Betsy and Billy suites on the 2nd floor. I would take advantage of them being done before opening and visit as often as possible. My favorite place was Betsy on the @article couch or at the island by @philawoodcraft. I’d throw on a playlist on the @sonos playbar and either relax and just feel the warmth of the @jerseyicecreamco plaster walls envelope me or peacefully work in private. It was one of the best working months of my life. I miss that feeling and it’s a small motivator towards building more of these places. That and the opening parties! If you’ve stayed with us and you’ve read this far, what was your favorite part of the room you stayed in and why?? #staylokal
If you’ve been thinking about that staycation, let this Old City hotel convince you that you’ve got the right idea.

Fresh on the shelves of Uncle Bobbie's…White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo and forword by Michael Eric Dyson. “[T]houghtful, instructive, and comprehensive . . . This slim book is impressive in its scope and complexity; DiAngelo provides a powerful lens for examining, and practical tools for grappling with, racism today.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review “A valuable guide . . . While especially helpful for those new to the critical analysis of whiteness, this work also offers a useful refresher to anyone committed to the ongoing process of self-assessment and anti-oppression work.” —Library Journal #unclebobbiescoffeeandbooks #dopebooks #coolpeople #greatcoff #whitefragility #book #newbooks #coffeeshopvibes #germantown
