Secret Santa and Ramen
SSC (Social Sciences Computing) Secret Santa! Some very... appropriate gifts to most people. *grins*
Then dinner at Ramen Yamadaya's newest location in Westwood! Not quite as tasty as the Torrance or Culver City locations, probably because the place just opened this week and has yet to let the wonderful smell of tonkotsu ramen permeate the walls...
Plus the bar is a little weird-- it's in the back of the restaurant and isn't nearly as welcoming. The bare walls and whatnot also need a little decoration. Again they're new, so that's okay for now.
And the staff-- many pulled from existing locations-- were very friendly. (maybe they noticed all the pictures I was taking. :-p )
