Intrepid L.A. Foodies Tackle 11-in-11 Nocturnal Challenge
Think you can eat? Think you can eat pretty much all night? About 40 up to the challenge embarked on a pretty staggering food-venture this weekend, aiming to tackle 11-in-11 overnight, as in 11 Los Angeles-area restaurants and bars in 11 hours, starting at 11 Saturday night and ending at 11 Sunday morning. (We're tired just typing that, by the way.) One of the first recaps up from the bloggers among the brave comes from (the appropriately name) FoodMarathon, who sums up the 11 +2 stops with quick thoughts on how each dish went down.The 11 (well, 13...food lovers get enthusiastic at times) stops included: Animal for Pork Belly Sliders (11:38pm), Masan for live octopus (12:43am), cocktails at HMS Bounty (1:38am), tacos at El Taurino (2:25am), chili burgers at the Original Tommy's (3:03am), Nak Won House for Korean BBQ (3:32am), emitas y clayudas fiesta at Pal Cabron (4:50am), coffee and breakfast at The Pantry (5:38am), bloody marys rooftop at sunrise at The Standard in Downtown (6:20am), boat noodles at Sapp's Coffee Shop in Thai Town (7:37am), a mellower breakfast at Huckleberry in Santa Monica (9:14am), Bay Cities Deli for a Godmother sub (10:19am), and an end-of-the-line morning cocktail at The Joker (11:22am).
Congratulations to those who took on the challenge...and especially to those who stuck it out. Anyone have any suggestions for where these and other brave food-lovers should go on their next big adventure? What would be your ideal food marathon?
