drinks - far bar

on wednesday night, i met up with my friend olivia, who works for macy's out of their pasadena office. but because she lives in los feliz, we decided to meet somewhere halfway, which ended up being in little tokyo! surprisingly, traffic was a breeze from santa monica, so i got there in less than 40 minutes, which is unheard of.

we decided on far bar, which is this charming, mostly outdoor narrow corridor with a beautiful string of lights hanging above.

they happened to have live music playing as well, so i'll most definitely be making a return trip.

they had a surprisingly eclectic set of taps - including japan's hitachino white and new belgium's tart lychee - and a decent selection of food. i settled upon two beers from utah's epic brewing company: their hopulent IPA (8.6%) on nitro, no less, and their smoked & oaked belgian (8.8%) - both of which hit the spot.

as an added bonus, laura dern and dermot mulroney were seated at the very table next to us, so it appeared that they were shooting an episode of HBO's "enlightened" nearby...
