UCLA vs. Stanford
One of the local "institutions" called Ronnie's Diner. Turned out to be not at all historic, a server so terrible he completely munged our order and blamed it on us, and very mediocre food.
UCLA vs. Stanford at the Rose Bowl... surprisingly good play by UCLA except the last two or three drives. C'mon Mora... you have to finish them off offensively, don't rely on the defense-- which predictably couldn't hold Stanford the last drive or two and got crushed, losing the game as a result. Ugh. Frustrating is the only emotion that truly comes to mind.
Late night snack at Mama's Lu after. Not the best this time of day, but if you want a real meal and don't want cafe/diner places like Garden, U2, JJ, or Sam Woo, Mama's Lu is open about as late as many of the real restaurants get. The xiao long bao don't match up with the delicacy of Din Tai Fung, but for nearly 10pm at night you can't complain.
Additional stops at Half and Half, Phoenix Dessert, and a terrible idea after with some really, really nasty wine in a can...
