Hey there! Hope you’re having a great week! Today I’m going to talk about one of my favorite parts of LA: Downtown.

Sometimes it’s after 9pm but you’re still hungry, too far from a dining hall and just want a quick bite to eat–and nothing’s in your  fridge.  Ordinarily, this sounds like a hard situation but in LA there’s always a place to go for food.  This week I’m bringing you my quick trip guide to food around campus that’s open when you …
