This Week in LA: Soba Workshop, Benefit for the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, and more!

Monday, December 24 – Sunday, December 30

There aren’t as many events this week because of the holidays. The ones we do have are pretty great, though! It should start picking up in January. In the meantime, enjoy the holidays, binge the latest installment of Terrace House, and don’t forget to tell your friends and family about soypaper.com! 😊
