dinner downtown: the farm

20 Oct

So today, after a particularly ZzzzZZ inducing Contracts class, I realized my plans to hit up a networking event with attorneys in Beverly Hills was probably overly ambitious for my energy level, but I salvaged the day socially by going to dinner at The Farm of Beverly Hills (located at LA Live) with two of my friends from my section, Aviva and  Amber. I’d never been to the “farm” before – it bills itself as “comfort food” but “better than your mom would make.” While my cesar salad wasn’t anything to write home about, the truffled mac n cheese was the perfect antidote to a long and taxing week.

so. many. options.

As we ate, we chatted about our classes, gossiped about section-mates (hah!) and chowed down. The best part was realizing that all of the scantily clad 15 year old girls were trapsing around LA Live for the night’s big event at Staples Center….a Chris Brown concert [cue intense Rihanna v. Chris Brown debate here]. Despite his wrong-doings, I’m still a sucker for these: Forever, Deuces, Beautiful People, and Yeah 3x. Before we headed back to campus, Amber and I indulged in Pumpkin Spiced Lattes from the ‘Bucks. I am now 6 stars away from getting my gold card. It’s the little things.

I hit the lib for a bit after we finished. Tonight will consist in unwinding with some TV and bidding adieu to this guy until Season 5:

sad.

Lots of fun law-related stuff to share as well – I’m going in early tomorrow to catch as much of this as I can – should be really interesting!

Happy Jersday, everyone! 🙂

    And the part that stood out the most… “6 stars away from a gold card!” Serious business! Congrats. (and the rest looked unbelievably delicious as well:)
