Jumping On A Full Stomach

So apparently there was this concert/dance on campus last weekend called GLOW. Even though my email inbox was assaulted with reminders about the party, I knew it was not really my cup of tea (party). Instead, a friend and I got in the car and decided to make Friday night an evening full of things we’ve wanted to do in L.A. but hadn’t gotten the chance to yet—a mini adventure if you will.
Originally from back east in Connecticut, I’ve lived in the City of Angels for three-going-on-four years now. Whenever I go home to visit, one of things I always do is grab Chinese food. My fellow east coast friends in L.A. all agree: east coast Chinese food is distinctly different (and some argue, better) than what we find on this coast. In fact it’s nearly impossible to find east coast style Chinese food in L.A., nearly. There’s a chain of fast food Chinese takeout called Panda Express and apparently they not only have a sit-down restaurant concept (called Panda Inn), but they have one located in Glendale. So I began my Friday night munching down the best East-coast Chinese food that the West coast had to offer.
Then we were off to an indoor trampoline park in Woodland Hills. What is an indoor trampoline park, you ask? Imagine a building the size of a supermarket. Now, take out all the people, the aisles full of food, the carts and the cashiers. Ok then, so what we’re left with is an empty shell of a building. Now fill that building will A LOT of trampolines. Trampolines suspended above the floor, trampolines suspended from the wall, trampolines everywhere! It was a ton of fun and I basically felt like I had stepped back into my childhood.
Overall a Friday night well spent.
