My daily commute is like a small gear of mechanical time, of epicycles upon epicycles, where days turn to months and to years, and the seasons cycle through. The rhythms of time are constant, but the changes they bring are not.

David Guy's shop only fits about twenty chairs, but for now, that's enough. It doesn't take too many people to make Boogaloo, with its guitar-flanked wall and gleaming display cases, feel packed. For a $5 cover, there's an act, coffee, plus treats baked by David's wife, “kitchen ninja” Chrys Hogan.
