Off-Ramp | Off-Ramp host John Rabe and contributors share thoughts on arts, culture, and life in L.A.

A few almost-winners in the Off-Ramp EatLA contest!

In this week’s Off-Ramp newsletter, we offered four brand new Eat LA guides to food and drink in Los Angeles. (On this week’s show, I interview the editor, and she gave us some books to give away.)

The contestants needed to send us a photo of themselves in some food- or drink-related setting. The first four in were Kelsey, Imelda, Robert, and Suzanne, and their books are in the mail. But we got more great pictures.

Reva Smilkstein, at Fatty’s in Eagle Rock, apparently on June 17:

And Tony Rodriguez, “with the Orochon Special #2 Spicy Ramen Challenge in Little Tokyo that I heard Queena Kim talk about a couple of years ago on Off Ramp!”

Thanks to everyone who entered. If you want to be in on these kinds of cool giveaways in the future, sign up for the Off-Ramp Newsletter.
