My campaign promise is that I will not post about politics today.
Went to Ryujin Ramen yesterday. I liked it a lot. I was mostly stoked that they had tako yaki (fried octopus balls), which I haven't had since I was in Tokyo. These were maybe not as good, but I liked the pickled ginger with them, it added a little tang. I also liked that they include the ginger in the spicy ramen, I like the whole egg, the chashu was great, the noodles were firm, which is cool. I refuse to weigh in on the Shoki/Ryujin debate. There is room enough for the both of them. I did just talk to a volunteer from Tokyo moments ago who drives from Davis to Shoki all the time, so there ya go.
There are three good shows on Friday!! Too many. Orca Team (Scott likes them)/Nacho Biznass at Bows. The Nachos were really good on Saturday. La Sera/Dreamdate at Midtown Village Cafe. It's awesome there's a new good venue and I am stoked to see Dreamdate. La Sera, meh. Then, Alkali Flats 10 anniversary at the Torch Club. That one may be the most fun of all! It starts pretty late and should go on for a long time, so I will catch that for sure. Every member of the many who have been in the band over the years will do a guest spot. Hopefully they will all jam on "The Weight" at the end or "Knocking on Heaven's Door".
