Grand Central Market Turns 100 Oct 27

One of our favorite places to nosh and hang out downtown is celebrating 100 years of service. A few minutes away from Little Tokyo or City Hall is the Grand Central Market known for its huge selection of things to eat. To celebrate this house of taste, there's going to be a party in it's honor October 27th and throughout the day special menu items and a big cake will be only some of the festivities. If you've enjoyed the Market over the years or have just been, celebrate and extra day this October.

And maybe, together we can get some decent t-shirt sizes for the annual Bread Festival held at Grand Central next year. You eat all the bread you're gonna be a big guy. Only size medium, come on, Bread Festival.
