If you love listening to National Public Radio, you’ll love their fascinating podcasts just as much. With a large number of different podcasts on a variety of topics, NPR proves that they truly have something for everyone. Here are two great options that you might enjoy.

TED Radio Hour
The TED Talks have inspired viewers around the world, and now you can listen to the incredible stories via a podcast as well. Host Guy Raz discusses inventions, innovative solutions to problems, and new ways of thinking and creating with some of the most brilliant minds in the world today. The podcast is based on TED Talks, but it also incorporates soundscapes and conversations about how the ideas are brought to life.

Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!
NPR’s hour-long weekly quiz program Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! allows listeners to play along as they listen. It features some of the most important people in the news and entertainment worlds today, and they ask questions about a wide range of topics that are relevant to just about anyone. Listeners must try to decide what’s real news and what’s made up, and you can play along on NPR’s website, as well.

Far Bar: Innovative Japanese Fare With Cocktails to Match

January 21, 2015 10:03 am

Located on the site of the former Far East Cafe, Far Bar is popular for its food, atmosphere, and low prices. The Far East Building in which Far Bar is located is an historic site, bringing all the charm of Little Tokyo’s past to this trendy, modern cafe.

Regulars highly rank the wasabi fries, the Far Bar burger, the Sapporo-beer-braised beef short rib tacos, and the Ming's wings. The Far Bar also offers an impressive selection of Japanese beers, as well as a number of different whiskeys. Popular beers here include the Tokyo black porter and the Hitachino sweet stout. Sip one of Far Bar’s craft cocktails, if you prefer. Customers recommend the Forest Fire, the Godzilla!, the Pink Lemon Drop, and the Hypnotist. Bacon lovers, however, should try the bacon-garnished Old Fashioned.

On a nice day, enjoy your drinks and food on the patio.
