Hang Out in Little Tokyo

How about we explore Little Tokyo together?!? From temples to gardens, and quirky little shops, it's a great place to spend the afternoon. And, we can always end the day at The Far Bar. It's a cool bar that's actually situated in an alley.

Okay, I didn't get any feed back, but this place was highly recommended, usually no line/wait, cheap/reasonable pricing, and it's in an area with parking, Honda Plaza.

    I changed my RSVP to no because my brunch might run late. However, if I happen to have time afterward, I might wander the neighborhood and run into y'all.

      Hope y'all had fun. I headed home after my earlier engagement. It was too frakkin' hot!

    Japan Arcade turned out to be better than X Lanes. They also switched to using quarters instead of tokens. I got the new Haruhi novel and ate more sweets than I should. The weather wasn't as hot as I expected either.

    We're still meeting at the ramen place, right? I'm not crazy about ramen either, but in my experience last minute venue changes should probably be avoided if at all possible.

    • Krystal

      yes, we are still meeting at men oh takushima ramen

    There's also a arcade nearby at the Woori market shopping center (there's a Beard Papa inside!) in case anyone's feeling nostalgic for some quater-plunking fun.

    Hey,

    I just updated the page by adding a definite place to meet (with some parking). I felt that was necessary, no? :)

    Tokushima Ramen in Honda Plaza
    456 E 2nd St
    Los Angeles, CA 90012

    See you at noon!

    Hello people, big nerd/geek here and proud of it, sadly I wont be able to make it to the june 30th meeting due to throwing a garage sale...which btw I have some comics and star wars figures for sale :P lol

    June 22, 2013

  • Hunter

    I will be off around 2 so if you are all still there!

    June 21, 2013

    • Krystal

      I'll still be there. Message me if you want my number, so you can text and check where we're at when you get off of work.

      June 21, 2013

  • Annie

    I'm actually going to have brunch in the area at 11:00am, so I'll try to meet up with you guys afterwards if y'all are still in the neighborhood.

    I'd recommend carpooling to cut down on parking costs, or taking the Metro in, either way.

    June 18, 2013

    • Krystal

      I personally take the metro, so I will definitely post the train/route and time I plan on going down. However, if anyone is willing and able to car pool, please do! It would be good if those who are interested or willing could continue posting on this stream/conversation here.

  • Patrick

    I will attempt to do my business in Phoenix on Saturday instead of Sunday that weekend. This really sounds like fun!

    June 18, 2013

  • Krystal

    I set the date for June 30th. Is that too soon, or would July 14th be better for everyone?

    June 18, 2013

  • Krystal­ changed the date and time to Sunday, June 30, 2013 at 12:00 PM

    June 18, 2013

  • Patrick

    Been a while, but id go every chance im not spending a weekend in Phoenix!

    June 17, 2013

  • Vicente Martinez J.

    I go there with some frequency (Curry House FTW!) on Saturday afternoons, so let me know if anyone wants to come along and extend my every third weekend infusion of CH.

    June 12, 2013

    • Krystal

      Hey, Vincente. You only go every 3rd Sat. of the month? Would you also be interested in going on a Sunday, or the last weekend of the month instead?

      June 16, 2013

    • Vicente Martinez J.

      Well my friends go about every other weekend and I'll tag along every so often (I haven't been in a while mostly because I've been making myself curry udon at home ;-)). I've no objection going on a Sunday.

      June 16, 2013

  • Ganna

    I'm down for that.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
