I spent an hour or so today hanging out at the Tofu Festival in Little Tokyo. I got to eat a tofu tostada, watch some kids compete in a tofu eating contest, and buy a tank top with a tofu robot on it. I think the photo on the right captures the highlight of my afternoon. How often does a girl have a chance to pose with an oversized, inflatable package of tofu?
The festival continues until 9 p.m. tonight, and Ozomatli is playing at 7, if you’re looking for some last-minute Sunday evening plans.
A few more photos are here.
Update: Mike of Franklin Avenue has a nice write up with yet more photos, although it looks like he passed up the opportunity to pose with the giant tofu.
