B-SIDE: Ike's, 100 N. Stone Ave. (Pioneer Building). Do you work downtown? If your brain's running at 33 1/3 rpm when it needs to be at 45, jump-start it with a cup of Ike's House Blend. This strong, dark roast works you like a combination of coffee songs by Sarah Vaughan, Lightnin' Hopkins and Tom Waits. And if you also need a bit of sugar (sugar) on your tongue, Ike's friendly staff will serve you up a Cinnamon (girl) Roll, a Blueberry (hill) Muffin, or a (do you believe in) Magic Bar.
