Exploring L.A. and Santa Monica

Saturday

The day after E3, the plan was to starve myself until my friend got back from his business trip so we could get the most out of Korean BBQ later in the evening. We ended up eating at In-N-Out, then waiting in line for Diddy Riese (cookies/ice cream), Blockheads (shaved ice), and Coco (boba). I can't say I've ever gone to that many eateries and/or waited in line at so many places in such a short span of time. Needless to say, we decided against KBBQ.

We met up with our other friend, who gave us a late-night tour of Riot Games HQ. I signed an NDA so I can't say much, but we did spend a majority of the night playing games in the "PCBANG". We won 2/3 games. Everything was awesome, and I can't wait for all the new stuff to be released. To compensate for lack of pictures, here is where the cool guys park.

My friends were super-hyping Umami Burger since I really love In-N-Out. So naturally, we went there so I could try it at least once. I know I'm going to sound lame, but In-N-Out still tastes better to me because it's so cheap for how good it is. #value

Sunday

The view from my friend's house was really pretty, so I snapped a couple pictures before we headed out to Manhattan Beach for the NA LCS matches at noon.

The studio is a lot smaller than it looks on the broadcast. I was definitely surprised.

My friend took me to Third Street Promenade and we went shopping for a little bit before rushing to Little Tokyo for dinner. Then it was another awful 11 hours of flights and layovers before I got home.
