And in order to keep it a safe and attractive place for teens, adults basically aren't allowed - there's a separate waiting area for parents. Fortunately we're very immature, so they let us in. Here we are with our buddy Michelle Gorman (in black) and the rest of the unusually attractive Loft staff:
