I ran across the Passport to Little Tokyo event when I was on Yelp today, a neighborhood version of Dine Out L.A.. For those new to Yelp, it's a place where folks post reviews of restaurants and businesses as well as pictures. Me and my wife have found it to be a place where you can find real-world opinions on restaurants, auto repair shops, and waxing salons...
Passport to Little Tokyo looks like a week-long invitation to visit your Little Tokyo neighborhood. Don't worry, no INS harassment or baggage searches.
There are a number of good deals: 15% off your bill at the new restaurant Fu-Ga on San Pedro, 20% of a meal at the Lazy Ox, free t-shirt with any purchase at RIF (where's that?). Special deals with your free printable Passport happen this week, Aug. 2 - 8.
We've set up this space where members of the Little Tokyo community could share information, thoughts, ideas, and opinions about the Little Tokyo neighborhood, it's people, politics, culture/history, businesses, and events. If you have something about the community you'd like to share with us, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project is a part of Little Tokyo Unplugged, a community Wi-Fi network that contributes to the development of our neighborhood through wireless and other information technologies.
