When I got laid off from my first job I went home and drank the entire bottle of wine my coworkers had given me just a few days prior for my birthday and then I stumbled over to this particular noodle house to have dinner with my friends who were in law school and I said very miserable, uncomfortable things like, “HOW’S LAWWWWWW SCHOOL HOW ARE THE CONTRACTS HOW’S THE SOCRAAAAAATIC METHOD LOLLLLLOLOLOL HAVE FUN BEING LAWYERS I DON’T HAVE A JOBBBBBBBBBBB” and then I went home and got very sad and decided to move to New York. So I moved to New York.

I’ve always associated Thai Noodle House with that moment I decided to move, so this news is pretty unfortunate.
