Tonight was the first time since we returned from winter break that I got to spend with my favorite mentor/editor/classmate/friend Angela! Even though we have the opportunity to see each other Tuesdays during production night & twice a week during our Media Law course, it can be a bit difficult to make time to spend with the friends that are just as busy as you are.
Today after work I headed straight to Stewart St. (not too far from campus) to meet up with Angela to grab a late bite to eat at Vapiano, a fancy-pancy-Los Angeles-type-cafeteria style restaurant. Upon arrival, the place was filled with 20 something year olds having drinks & spending time with friends. The way this unique dining place works, is you simply receive a card upon arrival that you use to add your drinks & food on to as you’re spending throughout the evening. I ordered a plate of wheat pasta, with eggplant, arugula, & tons of cheese. Honestly, I can admit that it was the BEST plate of pasta I have had in a while & I’m sure countless attempts to try to recreate it in my kitchen will soon occur. Catching up with friends (especially after a long break) is something that you should make time for. If you want to splurge on a very LA-esque dining experience, stop by Vapiano!
