Music is a fun category. My favorite Spotify playlists have Billy
Idol, Muddy Waters, Jewel, Mumford & Sons, The Eagles, and Iron
Maiden. Recently, I've also been gorging myself on Irish and Celtic

- Tonkatsu. Or katsudon. Or katsu-kare. Just bring on the breaded,

nuong. Eden Center is like a second home to me.
