While perusing KCET’s always fabulous and always informative Food section, we read a story about a little buying app that seeks to help you sidestep the shit of corporate greed through technology. It’s called Buycott and the idea is to give you–the consumer–the power to make informed purchases that aren’t somehow supporting a cause you are against. It gives us the chance to stick our money where shitty people can’t find it and, hopefully, cause some change in the world. It all started from Angeleno Ivan Pardo, too.
While West last weekend for the Quadron show, we were wondering where some good places to get a bite in Little Osaka were. We sent out a Tweet to get some suggestions and we received a resounding response pushing for a visit to one place: Plan Check. The place has been buzzed about since it opened a little over a year ago and was on everyone’s list of “places to eat right now.” Taking the advice of everyone and their mother, we stopped in to the no reservation restaurant around 9:30PM on a Friday night and had one of the best and worst dining experiences in the city.
