9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's The Nutcracker dining • Dec 20 2013 star this tip starred

A favorite of the Luckman stage, Raiford Rogers Modern Ballet returns for it’s eleventh season at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex.
Using a movement strongly rooted in classical ballet but still moving boldly forward into new territory, Raiford Rogers’ choreography has been described by the LA Times as “bracingly contemporary and superbly aware of how much ballet can express without descending to desperate crossover strategies or hard sell hyper-athleticism.”
The Los Angeles based company will present the Last Songs of Beethoven and the Birth of the Avant-garde_ including the ballet premiere of Heiliger Dankgesang. _The Dankgesang (Song of Thanks) is considered to be one of the most rapturous creations in 19th-century music and was written by Beethoven after recovering from a serious illness that he had feared was fatal. It is said that with these complex works Beethoven invented the avant-garde.
