A 2020 Message From Steeltown

A 2020 Message From Steeltown

It's easy to focus on the bad stuff. It's easy to wallow. After almost an entire year of seemingly endless struggle and strife, one could be forgiven for making despair their default setting. Seriously. But with a little hope and a whole lotta will power, the good stuff rises to the surface, the good stuff snaps into focus.

Steeltown Garage Co Top 9 2020

Looking at our Top 9, cheesy though it may be, reminds us that great memories are never that far outta reach. A hot coffee on a cold snowy day. The sweet gassy smell of an old truck. Working with yer hands. Finishing a project you've been thinking about for years but just never had the time. Doodling. Kicking a longboard through the deserted underground of a normally busy commuter train station. Ripping up some mud on a vintage dirt bike. Or driving too fast down empty streets with nothing on yer mind except falling in love and not getting arrested.

These mental souvenirs, scattered and random, remind us that nothing is ever all bad, nothing is beyond saving. "There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in." So as we collectively lurch forward into a new year, sputtering, exhausted and over it all, we'd like to thank you for helping us make these memories, thank you for staying by our side as we learn to navigate a brave new world, thank you for being a part of something true.

It's not possible for everyone to simply 'focus on the good stuff'. And it's ok if you can't or don't want to. If you need to speak to someone or are in crisis, use the info below or seek out more localized support:

Tokyo's Coffee Shop Time Machine

Since its inception in 1948, Cafe de L’Ambre has defied the passage of time. It exists to this day as a monument to exceptional coffee that is roasted, brewed and served in its own unique way according to the processes and standards established by its late founder, Ichiro Sekiguchi, a centenarian who died in 2018 at 103.
