Moxie Java Bites the Las Vegas Dust
Background: In another time and place, I enjoyed myself a few cuppa at Moxie Java... so I was pleasantly surprised to spot a Moxie outlet here in Las Vegas, about 2 weeks ago, in the distance. At that time I couldn't make a stop to grab a caffe latte so I promised myself that I would soon return.
Last weekend, I found myself near that little shop again, and happily had time for a break... however, I wasn't able to get a coffee this time, either....
A sign on the front door announced that Moxie had closed before the new year... que lastima...
What is it about Las Vegas that only Starbucks and a few Coffee Beans can survive? That is one not so lovely truth about my Lovely Las Vegas.
True, there are some enjoyable coffees to be found within restaurants and Mediterrean markets around these parts, but I'd still love to see some more indie coffee/tea spots... ones with an earthy vibe like Urth Cafe, LA... or ones sporting paintings and photography of local artists... or just any one with decent brews that isn't a large, (inter)national chain.
