Exploring west LA with Sam and Parveen, Ray and Molly, even caught Sophia at the end of the day. Santa Monica including 3rd Street Promenade, quick snacks at Vanilla Bake Shop and Famima!, more wandering, then off to dinner at Tender Greens in downtown Culver City. Lamb special was pretty decent, although the seared ahi also looked great.
Said goodbye to Sam and Parveen (yes, quick trip!), then caught up with Sophia for dinner number two at Furabio on Sawtelle. Nom'ed on all the yakitori dishes there, plus some others such as the fried cheese and the kubota pork belly. Then to Blockheads Shavery for shaved snow, although the wait was a bloody ridiculous 40 minutes after they'd taken our order. Crazy. (or maybe we were the crazy ones...)
