Though located on the edge of the historic Gaslamp District, Taste and Thirst draws in its clientele with a distinctly modern atmosphere. The lounge and bar's low lighting and flat-screen TVs cast patrons in a dreamlike glow as they revel from the morning until late at night. Early in the day, kitchen staff prepare breakfast with french toast, piquant omelets, and bottomless mimosas. They also craft traditional pub food such as burgers piled with cheese and house sauce, truffle fries and tater tots, and wings dressed up in nine styles of glaze. Throughout the day, illuminated by the festive white lights wrapped around the bar's pillars, bartenders sling drinks from a refreshing menu of domestic beers and cocktails.

ProImage Video’s technicians stop time in its tracks—or at least its effects on physical videotapes. Home movies captured on film degrade over time, diminishing their picture quality and potentially becoming unwatchable, should the tape break. Manning a bank of specialized equipment, the technicians transfer to DVD discs every second of footage from nine different types of tape sources, including VHS and 8mm. The discs do not deteriorate, which means that as the years pass, clients can share their videos with their children, their children’s children, and their children's children's robotic overlords. Should clients need to preserve an audio recording, technicians stand ready to transfer audio cassette recordings to CD.
