Normally, I'm not predisposed to posting anything that doesn't involve me eating something. Hey, it is my eating adventures after all! But this is something so important that I really couldn't ignore. Recently, the events in Japan have been both heart-wrenching and poignant. Of course there are many ways we can support the people of Japan. That has been well-documented in the news media and Twitter. However, it has been brought to my attention that Sanpachi has been doing their own. You see, the owner has relatives in Sendai and have not heard from them since the Earthquake. Until the end of March, they are donating 1 dollar for every bowl of ramen sold to the Red Cross to Japan. Of course, this is only one of the many ways to people are helping out the people of Japan; but I thought it was something I'd like to share. Now on a totally different topic, MyCityCuisine is a wiki project that is looking for contributors. It is a resource meant to be a traveler's guide to local cuisine around the world. Check it out. It seems like a neat idea. Okay, I'm done talking.
