In our Spring 2012 issue, we feature Six Taste, the largest and highest rated food tour company in Los Angeles founded by USC alum Jeff Okita. Our writers got mushy on their Valentine’s Day tour and a pipin’ hot Thai Town tour. Now’s your chance to check out their “Shamrocks and Green Shots” tour, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
On March 16, from 5 to 10 pm, stroll Little Tokyo/Arts District (who knew the area was so Irish!) with a group of friends ready to imbibe. Check out green tea donuts from Cafe Dulce, pesto pasta from Fat Spoon, and the green tea pudding at Aburiya Toranoko. Drinks include Green Sangria, Green Iced Plum Wine from Izakaya Fu-Ga or green draft beers from Xlixe and District.
It was a Friday night. As usual, Little Tokyo in Los Angeles was full of night owls ready to socialize over good food and frothy drinks.
The patrons at the Far Bar on East 1st Street were no exception. The bar was full of mostly young and mostly Asian guests, all of whom appeared to be having a great time. However, this crowd had gathered for a purpose that went beyond just socializing. They were here for “A Celebration of Asian American Soul,” as presented by the online magazine Asia Pacific Arts and co-hosted by inVenture.
