If you're looking for more ways to be one step closer to meeting Jared Leto but couldn't make it to his mystic hippie camp in Calabasas earlier this month, you're in luck. This September, the Academy Award winner's brother (and Thirty Seconds to Mars bandmate) Shannon Leto is bringing his new coffee brand, Black Fuel Trading Company to West Hollywood's Harper Salon for a month-long pop-up shop. He's kicking off the launch this Saturday, August 29th.
Taking place from 7-10pm, Shannon will be hanging at the salon, spreading the word on his passion for a good cup of responsibly-sourced java, which organically developed over the fourteen years he spent touring with his band. Offering everything from Big Sur-inspired blends to branded snapback hats, he hopes to turn this installation into a permanent cafe/curated shoppable space by next year.
