Summer cold noodle season officially open

The signs are all here - warmer weather, student exodus, sudden rainstorms, construction crews ripping up the asphalt leaving neon-painted personhole covers jutting from the roads - it's just about summer.  As if further evidence was needed, I had cold noodles for lunch at Sapporo Ramen in the Porter Exchange today with The Skeptical CMO.
