Despite all their indie posturing, Silver Lakers all but lost their affected cool this weekend when rumors broke that Whole Foods will take over the shuttered Circuit City space on Sunset Blvd. (one Tweeted example: “Best day of my life!”).
Unfortunately for everyone saving up for that first ounce of organic quinoa, LAist just appeared with a giant bag of salt to pour into Silver Lake’s game. Turns out the whole thing is just a lo-fi joke made by some joker seeking to stir the pot.
It turns out that Whole Foods, which announces its forthcoming new stores every quarter, tells the blog it has no plans to come to Silver Lake, saving the whole neighborhood loads of loot and a few creepy glances from desperate shoppers lingering over trays of pre-made Indian food for their next date.
